How Ancient Olive Oil Soap is Crafted
Luxurious olive oil soaps have been made in Syria for thousands of years. Soap-making is traceable all the way back to 2400 B.C. Olive trees were first native in the lands of greater Syria nearly 6,000 years ago prior to being grown in the rest of the Mediterranean.
The Syrian soil and climate remain the best in the world for growing olives and harvesting their oil. Anyone who has tasted an olive from this area will attest that they are far superior in texture and flavor than the ones we normally have access to in the U.S.
Syrian villages still linked to their past are world renowned for the art of olive growing and cultivation. This ancient knowledge has advanced throughout time, but basic methods using natural mechanisms rather than chemical solutions, have remained consistent.
The olives and laurel berries in this unique soap grow naturally in the northern areas of Syria and southeastern Turkey. The soap is produced according to the traditional method, where olive oil, mixed with laurel oil, is boiled at 200 degrees Celsius. Water is then added to convert the oil into a soap (saponification).
The mixture is then poured on clean floors of underground storage areas for a short time, after which it is cut and stacked in cave-like storage areas for 6 to 9 months to dry and cure. During this time the outer portions of each bar take on a soft, naturally green color that develops a golden outer skin as it ages. Only then is it ready for packaging and delivery to you.
