Why use Aleppo soap for the face?
For several millennia, Aleppine master soap makers have passed on their know-how from generation to generation. Still produced in the 21st century, Aleppo soap seduces thanks to its natural character and its many benefits. This natural soap Aleppo soap can be used daily for cleansing, and can be applied to the body as well as the face.
An antiseptic, purifying and soothing Aleppo soap
The traditional recipe is essentially based on the combination of olive oil and bay laurel oil. These two oils of natural origin lend their multiple virtues to Aleppo soap, and are perfectly suited for application to the face:
● Its antiseptic properties effectively remove bacteria, fungi and viruses. Aleppo soap thus contributes directly to excellent hygiene.
● Its purifying properties eliminate dead cells and impurities. Aleppo soap ensures a supple and smooth skin and a clear complexion.
● Its soothing properties provide immediate well-being. Aleppo soap calms the tingling and tightness of the skin.
A soap to restore the hydrolipidic film
The skin is covered with a hydrolipidic film, produced naturally by the sebaceous glands. This film plays an indispensable protective role:
● It maintains the skin at an acidic pH, and thus prevents the penetration of microbes and other micro-organisms that are harmful to the body.
● It contributes to the hydration of the skin, by limiting the loss of water due to evaporation.
● It protects the skin from many external aggressions, including UV radiation.
A hydrolipidic film can have multiple consequences: dehydration and skin dryness, redness, itching ... The face, sensitive and unprotected by clothing, is particularly affected. Aleppo soap preserves the hydrolipidic film, and can be used daily on the face.
A shaving foam of natural origin
Men can also enjoy the benefits of Aleppo soap when shaving. Applied on the face, it replaces advantageously the shaving foam. It effectively lubricates the skin, and promotes a more fluid use of the razor. Its soothing properties also protect the skin from razor burn, while its antiseptic properties prevent the risk of infection in the event of cuts or micro-cuts. It also deeply moisturises the skin, making it a real facial treatment!
A purifying mask of natural origin
You can also melt a piece of Aleppo soap and apply the resulting paste, in a thick layer, to the face. Leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing with lukewarm water. Your skin will be purified, smoothed and rid of many imperfections. We advise you to moisturize your skin afterwards, the Aleppo soap applied as a mask can indeed have a drying effect.

Aleppo soap for every skin type
Aleppo soap is particularly recommended for people with dry or very dry skin, but it can also meet the needs of all.
