Soap

Our soap: Well-thought-out for a lasting effect!

»Why don’t you guys make shampoo?« our friends didn’t stop asking. After a long testing phase, it became increasingly clear to us that for ecological and technical reasons, it can only be a soap. Why? Soap contains a lot less water, needs much less packaging and thus preserves resources in the production phase while at the same time it’s more economical in use.

We deliberately decided against producing the soap ourselves. There are professionals from Aleppo who have done this for centuries, and if we can help secure these great craftsmen’s livelihoods with our orders, so much the better! Our requests in terms of quality were simple: the soap has to be organic, must not contain any added allergens and has to be mild and tolerated well – and it is!

Because of the war, the soap production is possible only under the most difficult circumstances. In the meantime, though, our manufacturer has found an alternative in exile. Across the Syrian border, but still in the region of Aleppo, a second manufactory now operates approximately 90 kilometres north of Aleppo. All soaps that are produced there are hence tagged »Made in Turkey«.

Some tips for using hair soap

Our advice is to clean your beard with soap only every other day. In between, it is sufficient to wash it with nothing but lukewarm water. On the “soap days”, just rub the bar of soap over your beard once or twice to absorb enough for cleaning your beard – less is definitely more! Of course, the soap can also be used to clean your scalp hair as well as your whole body.

Hair soap needs to be rinsed longer and more thoroughly than industrially produced shampoos. The harder the water, the more likely it is that soap residues or lime are not washed out properly and remain in the hair. If your hair looks lank or feels heavy or greasy after washing, we recommend using a cold or sour hair rinse, depending on the water’s degree of hardness and/or your hair type.

Cold rinse: Rinsing your hair with cold water makes the outer cuticle of the hair smooth, thus enveloping the hair. It becomes shinier and is protected from environmental stresses.

Sour rinse: A sour rinse is easy to make: mix 1 litre of cold water with one to two tablespoons of apple cider or the juice of half a lemon. Rinse and leave in the hair (don’t wash it out). It removes any lime or soap residues and makes the hair soft and smooth.
