Renowned for its cleaning and degreasing properties, as the main ingredient in this natural Aleppo soap is saponified olive oil. p>
The first primitive soap was made from ashes of wood and other plants, by extraction with water.
The ashes of halophytes (plants of the Mediterranean area) such as saponaria, salicornia and soda were especially effective in making soap.
The cleaning properties of these alkaline solutions were probably discovered by chance. The word soap comes from the name of the Italian city Savona where significant quantities of soap were made during the 9th century AD.
The oldest reference to soap making dates back to 2800 BC. To make soap, fats were boiled to which ashes were added. After many attempts, the Gallic and Germanic tribes discovered the saponification process.
In the Middle Ages, soap was used primarily to wash clothes. In the 7th century, thanks to Arab merchants, the European people discovered bars of soap. Soap making quickly became an established craft in Europe.
Soap makers are tothey grouped into artisan guilds to jealously guard their manufacturing secrets. Soap making began to differ from one region to another. In the Mediterranean lands, such as Italy, Spain and the south of France, soap was made with olive oil.
For persistent stains, simply lather the previously wet area and leave it to act for a few minutes.
Najel also recommends its use to wash pets. In fact, this 100% Aleppo soap made with olive oil is totally suitable for animals that will be clean and with a silky coat.
