An extremely sublime and traditional soap, handcrafted in Nablus, Palestine, exclusively with the best olive oil from the first pressing (extra virgin).
Nablus is just a few kilometers north of Jerusalem and has thousands of years of experience in making their unique soaps, despite all historical difficulties. Nonetheless, there are only 3 intact soap manufacturers today (for comparison: in the 80s there were over 20), which have survived to this day in the politically troubled situation. Buying a Nablus soap is therefore more than just an everyday purchase; it is your contribution to the preservation of this centuries-old branch of industry in this crisis-ridden region.
Soap making Our Nablus soap is made exclusively on the basis of the finest olive oil. With the aim of preserving the exquisite properties of the high-quality olive oil at low temperatures, the soap is cooked on the lowest flame for several days and then left to dry. With the help of a characteristic red wool thread, the white soap is drawn by hand after it has hardened and the often reddish traces remain on the soap as a reminder and proof of the handcraft. The soap is then cut along these red drawings and is ready for its journey to your home.
Due to the richness of mineral salts such as potassium, magnesium, iron or manganese, glycerine and the naturally occurring linoleic and alpha linoleic acids, the soap has a natural antioxidant and lipid replenishing effect and a beneficial effect on your skin. It is especially suitable for use on particularly sensitive skin types and has a subtle fragrance.
