Aleppo one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world that has stood in its place for more than 8 thousand years. This ancient city thrived on trade for thousands of years, and was famous for being the endpoint of the famous Silk Road that bridged East and the West before the advancement of sea trade routes in the “Age of Sail”. It’s nearly impossible to trace the origin of Aleppo soap (Also known as: ‘Savon d’Alep’, or ‘Laurel Soap’, or ‘Ghar Soap’ Laurel is known as Ghar in Syria) because it predates documented history. It is said to have been used by Queen Cleopatra of Egypt and Queen Zenobia of Syria.

One of the most important trade items of the city of Aleppo in Syria is without a doubt this unique soap which was made and guardian by generations of merchant families. Formula and manufacturing process for this highly prized soap performed by Hasan in its original processing and prepared in its unique form and methods.

Other modern soap bars do not compare. You will notice the difference when you use Hasan Aleppo Soap shampoo & body bars, and feel the quality right away. It’s safe for all and suits all skin types.

Switching tips & using info

Using a shampoo bar is different than liquid shampoo. Here are some tips:

– As you transition to a natural shampoo bar, you will find that your scalp produces less oil- less oil means more days between shampooing. However, it may take a few washes for your hair to adjust to the ingredients and consistency of my natural shampoo bars. The commercial liquid shampoo can strip away all of the natural oils in your scalp, causing your scalp to produce excess oils to replenish moisture – then you need to shampoo by the next day because your scalp is oily. It’s a vicious cycle when it comes to commercial shampoos!

– Remember, liquid shampoos have gums, thickeners, and silicones, which can build up on the hair. Unlike a liquid shampoo and even some modern shampoo bars which uses synthetic detergents (including Sodium Laureth Sulfate), Hasan Aleppo Soap “shampoo bars” have a rich, thick, luxurious lather. Soap suds from the Hasan Aleppo Soap might not rinse out quickly in the beginning, so make sure to rinse thoroughly. Rub the bar directly onto your wet hair to maximize the suds that get lathered into the hair!

– HAS bars are made with olive oil base combined with premium plant-based ingredients and a blend of essential oils, to give you a powerful conditioner at the same time. The oils are converted to soap, so they wash clean and won’t leave the hair oily so your scalp is clean- not stripped of all moisture.

– Soap and eyes: Hasan natural soap is non-toxic and comes with 100% natural ingredients. Compared to commercial shampoo and soap, our soap has no fragrance, no preservatives, and no chemical leathering agents. Some of my customers have even switched to our soap over pharmaceutical shampoo.

 – Please remember that our soap is for external use only. If soap gets in your eyes, use a gentle stream of cool water to flush out your eye. Continue flushing until the burning sensation is no longer noticeable. Make sure your hands are clean and you remove your contact lenses.

 – To make your bar last longer, store it in an area of your bathroom or shower where it can dry fully between washes, and use a soap holder to keep it from sitting in water.

Can I use the body soap for my hair?

The answer is No!  We recommend only using the ‘shampoo bar’ for your hair. Body soap is not similar to hair soap, so you are not supposed to use body soap for your hair.

Earth friendly bars

Hasan Aleppo Soap is an eco-friendly, low to zero-waste product. Recycle our paper packaging, instead of going through plastic bottles of commercial shampoo.

What about the lye?

I believe that today’s consumers are pretty savvy and the best practice is to educate.” 

 There is no lye present in “Hasan Aleppo Soap” finished bars. 

 Let’s get technical, No lye — No soap! Your soap can only be called Soap if it contains Lye (sodium hydroxide, potassium hydroxide, or wood ash). Any skin or hair cleansing product made without lye is not soap, but detergent. The chemical reaction of making the soap is called saponification. When this process is complete, the lye and oil molecules have combined and chemically changed into soap and glycerin. If the soap is made properly, the lye is used up in the saponification process to turn oil into soap.
