Aleppo soap can be used by anyone looking for a natural, chemical-free soap, but it can also help in a variety of skin problems. The olive oil used to make this soap gives it a creamy consistency and makes it especially gentle and moisturizing.
Virgin olive oil contains valuable antioxidants, helps restore your skin’s natural balance, it has a mild anti-inflammatory effect reducing redness and irritation and it is usually well tolerated even by the most sensitive skin types.
Laurel bay oil is what makes Aleppo soap potent when it comes to healing various skin problems such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, herpes, bacterial dermatitis, fungal infections, irritated skin but also for scalp problems like dandruff, seborrhoeic dermatitis, and others.
Laurel bay oil can help with all of these ailments because it is a natural but also strong antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal agent. Even if you’re already on a treatment prescribed by a certified healthcare practitioner, Aleppo soap can be an effective complementary remedy.
If you don’t have any particular skin problem, the laurel oil in Aleppo soap still makes it a more effective disinfectant than regular soap but it also doesn’t over-dry your skin or cause irritation.
You can use Aleppo soap like any regular soap, to wash your face and body. As a shampoo, it can be effective for oily scalp, itchy scalp and dandruff caused by seborrhoeic dermatitis. It might not be suitable for you if you have dry hair.
