Composition of aleppo soap
Laurel oil: laurel berries contain a large amount of oil, up to 70%, but its medicinal properties receive the most attention due to the essence’s primary component, eucalyptol. Some of laurel’s most important therapeutic activities are that it eliminates harmful microorganisms that could live on the surface of the skin, and in some way, it is an anti-inflammatory as well.
Olive oil: has truly amazing properties: it nourishes, moisturizes, softens, conserves, waterproofs, calms, lubricrates, purifies, and cleans the skin. It is precisely for these reasons that this oil began to be valued.
Primary components: vitamins A, E, P and C, and minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, and sulphur.

Vitamin A, also known as carotene, is liposoluble. This means that it needs fat in order to be absorbed. It helps prevent certain cutaneous infections. It helps keep the skin healthy because it is a skin tonic and prevent premature dryness.
Vitamin E, also known as tocopherol, is liposoluble and increases vitamin A activity. It acts essentially as an antioxidant, and therefore produces a protective action for the skin.
Vitamin P, also known as bioflavonoid, is hydrosoluble, and is what gives some vegetables their yellow color. It is fundamental for increasing resistance to certain infections, and also protects the mucous membranes when they are inflamed or bleeding, and it increases vitamin C’s effectiveness.
