About Us

I dream of a world as pure, virgin and natural as my childhood.

In the region of Antakya (Antioch), Aleppo soap is a traditional soap that has survived for centuries. In my childhood, each family produced enough in their own home to meet their annual needs. After it was produced each year in November, it was left to dry in completely natural conditions and stored for annual consumption.

Since I was a child, I have had a connection with this soap while producing soap at home. Over the years, I started making my own soap, as my family does every year. As we produced soap that could be considered a miracle with laurel oil from the laurel fruit harvested in the mountains and olive oil from our olive groves, the addiction to it began to develop.

Then I started to produce this soap for consumers who want to both protect the original and reach this soap.
I first started by registering the formula. My dear friend, the chemical engineer Anahita Topaloğlu, gave me endless support for this process. We registered the formula together, got the permits from the Ministry of Health and now the secret came from the first production. Once again, with my dear Anahita, we went to Antakya and made our own product in a soap factory where we had an agreement.

The result was much better than I expected. We managed to produce high quality products. We decided that its packaging had to be natural and we named it Lauriers d'Antioche.
Lauriers d'Antioche products are made in Atakya (Antioch) according to the traditional methods of Aleppo soap production, which has been handed down from father to son for centuries. The province of Antakya (Antioch) is 130 km from the province of Aleppo and has the same natural and geographical characteristics and traditions. For centuries, masters have come to the homes, using the natural olive oil and laurel oil of the region, and it is produced by hand and hot without any other additives.

When preparing these products, our greatest goal is to pass on the traditions to the next and future generations without departing from traditional methods, bring the product to the users, make the users happy and meet their expectations at the highest level. For this reason, it has produced this product, which has been used in the natural, healthy and ecological care of skin, body and hair for more than 15 years, with the same methods for its own consumption, and to fight against the demand and production methods that diverge from the essence of Aleppo soap on the market and to prevent the destruction of the quality product. Provides a market for consumers. The products are manufactured in Antakya with the authorization and approval of the Ministry of Health with high quality and according to European Union standards.

Aleppo soap are derived from the hot saponification of two selected oils: Olive oil and laurel oil.
Olive oil has excellent softening properties and once transformed into soap, it is a powerful cleaner. Laurel oil has soothing, antiseptic, disinfectant and regenerating properties. For this reason, Aleppo soap with a high percentage of laurel oil (30% and more) is recommended for dry and sensitive skin. It cleans and soothes the skin and is recommended for so-called "problem" skin.
Aleppo soap cleans the skin thoroughly and is also suitable for body, face and hair. It soothes the dry scalp and helps fight dandruff.
