Created in Aleppo Syria, Laurel is called Ghar in Arabic and is totally natural, made of Olive and Laurel Oil soap. It is handmade using a very traditional method and its secret lies in the untouched quality of its ingredients. Our soap is certified Derma-cosmetic and Hypoallergenic. Composed of pure Noble Olive oil, as well as oil from the pulp of the Laurel berry, it is guaranteed pure, natural and of vegetable origin.
