Nablus olive oil soap

The healthiest and simplest soap made in the same style since the 13th century

Nablus Soap is a sort of castile soap made exclusively in Nablus, Palestine’s West Bank. Virgin olive oil, the primary agricultural output of the area, water, and an alkaline sodium complex make up its principal constituents. The completed item is creamy in color and hardly smells. By the 14th century, it had grown to be a substantial business for Nablus, traditionally produced by women for domestic consumption. Half of the soap used in Palestine was produced at the city’s 30 Nabulsi soap factory in 1907. Following the devastation brought on by the 1927 Jericho earthquake and the subsequent disruption due to the Israeli military occupation, the industry started to collapse in the middle of the 20th century. Only two soap manufactures remained in Nablus as of 2008.

olive oil

Olives are a traditional tree crop of the Mediterranean Basin . Olive oil is a liquid fat derived from olives, which are pressed whole to extract the oil. It is frequently employed in cooking, either as a salad dressing or for frying meals. Some soaps, medications, cosmetics, and traditional oil lamp fuels all include it. Some religions utilize it for extra purposes as well. One of the three staple foods in Mediterranean cuisine, along with wheat and grapes, is the olive. Since the eighth millennium BC, olive trees have been planted throughout the Mediterranean region.


Nablus soap is manufactured only from olive oil, water, and soda, as opposed to commercial soaps derived from petroleum detergents and animal byproducts. The oldest soap-making method in the world involves cooking it heated for many days in order to eliminate the caustic soda and produce a firm, long-lasting bar that is completely cleansed. Most people who have used Sabun al-Nabulsi believe it to be the healthiest, easiest, most adaptable, and least irritating soap in the world.


Nablus soap is renowned for its velvety lather that cleans without damaging and for washing away without leaving a film. In the Mediterranean region, it is used for skin conditions such eczema, psoriasis, rashes, dandruff, acne, cold sores, and general itching. It may be used for nearly any type of washing and is powerfully cleansing .


A vegan soap tradition that dates back to Babylonia 4500 years is used to make Nablus soap (ancient Syria, Iraq, and Kuwait). Nablus soaps are unlike almost all other modern soaps because they are carefully cooked on high heat in the traditional manner by master soap makers. They are also incredibly dense and long-lasting, renowned for being healthy for the skin, 100% vegan, biodegradable, low-salt, gray-water and garden-safe, and useful for a variety of other things that are difficult to briefly describe.

Production process

Virgin olive oil, water, and a substance made of alkaline sodium are the main components of Nabulsi soap, just as Castile soap. The chemical is created by combining the locally available lime with the powdered ashes of the barilla plant (qilw), which grows along the banks of the River Jordan (sheed).

The sodium compound is then cooked in big copper vats over fermentation pits together with water and olive oil. Over the course of eight days and 40 cycles, the salt compound and water solution gets more and more concentrated. The liquid soap is continually stirred throughout that time using a dukshab, a wooden utensil in the shape of an oar.

The liquid soap is then spread out to dry in wooden frames. Once it has dried, the traditional Nabulsi soap cube shape is carved out of it, and the brand’s logo is embossed on each one. The next step is to dry the soap cubes, which can take three months to a year and entails stacking them in ceiling-high constructions with hollow cone-shaped structures that enable air to circulate around them.
