Aleppo CP Soap

Allepo soap has been around for centuries.  It is crafted with Laurel Fruit Oil land Olive Oil.  The Laurel fruit oil lends not only a distinct aroma but a beautiful earthy green color to the soap. As there are no lathering or hard oils in this gem, (ie coconut) it has a different feel to it.  As a test, I used it 2 months into the cure.  It was hard and silky with very little lather.  It will get better after 4 or so months more curing time.  I was impressed on how it came to trace so quickly.  Also how hard it is after 2 months.

I decided to only use 20% Laurel Fruit Oil and 80% Extra Virgin Olive Oil.  Too much Laurel Fruit oil would intensify the smell.

As you can see this is a moisturizing bar with 78 value.  There is no water discount.  Even though the soap calculator indicates this is not a hard bar, I disagree.  The INS number is not what I like to work with but went with it.  What a wonderful bar.  Don’t forget to wash your soap while still in the loaf mold for a nice shiny top.

Have made three batches of this soap and can’t wait to try it in 12 months! The third batch was the best – the mixture comes to trace very quickly so I just stirred it with a whisk and poured it into the mold after light trace. I didn’t warm the oils. Created a beautiful smooth almost pudding like soap. Cut beautifully about 24 hours later.
