What is Aleppo Soap?

Ancient wisdom meets conscious skincare.

Lowy’s Traditional Aleppo Soap is not a passing trend; it stands the test of time and is poised to become the first choice for health-conscious consumers. Despite its global success, it remains relatively undiscovered in America. Embrace the ancient wisdom and timeless benefits of Lowy’s traditional Aleppo Soap – where traditional cleansing meets modern, conscientious skincare.

Introducing the first soap ever made, Aleppo Soap, originating in the ancient city of Aleppo, Syria. Steeped in history, Aleppo Soap has been discovered in the tombs of Egyptian Pharaohs, and the legendary Queen Cleopatra herself is said to have cherished its skin-nourishing qualities.

Our soap is crafted using the same centuries-old recipe and artisanal soap-making process. Yet, what truly sets this soap apart is its natural composition. With just three ingredients – Laurel Oil, Olive Oil, and Water – traditional Aleppo Soap is a testament to simplicity and quality, a product that has stood the test of time.

What's inside our soap?

While the skincare benefits of Olive Oil are well-known – a natural moisturizer rich in vitamin E and possessing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties – Laurel Oil might be less familiar. Derived from laurel berries found on bay leaves (like a Christmas wreath), Laurel Oil is a powerhouse with antiseptic, antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. Eastern dermatologists and naturopaths widely recommend it for treating various skin issues, from eczema and psoriasis to rashes, cuts, and burns. In ancient times, it was the only skin-safe, natural resource that effectively killed germs and bacteria; and it remains to this day one of the healthiest means of natural daily cleansing.


Lowy’s commitment to quality is reflected in their organic, vegan and non-GMO ingredients, sourced exclusively from their native habitats of the Mediterranean region. Handmade, eco-friendly and cruelty-free, Lowy’s products also support sustainability and environmental preservation, utilizing plants that last for centuries and require very little water and maintenance. Moreover, the cultivation of Lauris nobilis, the laurel oil crop, enhances biodiversity by harnessing the potential of an underutilized species -- meaning it has the capacity for broader ecological uses.
