Aleppo Soap
by Balthazar & Rose

***

This is one of our favorite products this season.

It’s Aleppo Soap (Savon d’Alep) from balthazar & rose, a towel and soap company based in Los Angeles.

Why do we like balthazar & rose‘s Aleppo Soap so much?

  • It’s for both face and body, consists of only 4 ingredients (olive oil, laurel bay oil, lye and water), and has no parabens or artificial coloring;
  • The soap is made by a seasoned Syrian Aleppo soap master;
  • The product is part of a +1,000-year-old tradition from the city of Aleppo; and
  • Each bar serves to remind us of the plight of refugees, who’ve been affected by the war in Aleppo and the rest of Syria.

And if that’s not enough…

  • The soap is packaged in Los Angeles by Homeboy Industries, providing jobs for formerly incarcerated youth (homeboyindustries.org); and
  • balthazar & rose will provide the Jesuit Refugee Service (jrsusa.org) with a portion of proceeds from every sale of soap.
