This type of bay leaf laurel soap has been made for centuries using laurel (bay leaves). The delicate and mild scent helps bring peace, calm and clarity of thought, protecting both the skin while calming the soul. It is based on the first soaps ever made by humankind more than 3000 years ago in the alluvial plains of Mesopatamia and the Levant. Sometimes referred to as Aleppo soap, it is still commonly prescribed by some dermatologists to this very day.
These wonderful soap bars are made using ancient traditional techniques, where olive oil and lye are naturally converted into soap (saponified) and then bay leaf (laurel) oil is added to the final process. With no animal fats or chemical additives and only 100% natural ingredients, these traditional soaps are then poured into moulds and hand stamped. They are then cured, and allowed to solidify and age naturally to form a light outer crust . The outer surface of this olive oil based soap goes a gentle greenish - brown through oxidation over time so colours may vary. The soap is also rich in vitamin E, antioxidants, oloe vera and natural glycerin. Thus, this soap is both gentle and highly clensing to the skin removing free radicals and harmful bacteria to help calm the skin.
Unlike other similar products on the market this soap has been specially formulated to produces a rich, creamy, moisturising lather, while maintaining its firm exfoliating properties to the very end, thanks to the infusion of finely crushed bay leaves. Thus, we are confident you’ll love this truly amazing soap.
