The weight of our Aleppo soap

The weight of our Aleppo soap

In our shop, we often receive the question, "How much does Aleppo soap weigh?" This seemingly simple question leads to a deeper discussion about the manufacturing process and the unique, lengthy curing process, both of which significantly determine the weight of the soap. Due to the interest of our customers in this topic, we have decided to examine the subject more closely.

Manufacturing Process

The manufacturing process of Aleppo soap is a traditional and elaborate procedure that has a significant impact on the final weight of the soap. In the first step of this process, olive oil and lye are mixed and heated in a large cauldron. After the mixture cools, laurel oil is added, and the mixture is heated again.

Once the mixture has cooled, it is cut into blocks. The weight of these blocks varies depending on the size of the cut. Typically, the blocks of Aleppo soap found in our shop weigh between 100 and 250 grams.

Curing Process

Another significant factor that determines the weight of Aleppo soap is the curing process. After the soap blocks are cut, they are typically dried for a period of six to nine months. During this time, they lose water and, consequently, weight.

However, our Jegit Aleppo soap is something special. This soap undergoes a four-year curing process, which is well above average. During this extended curing period, the soap can lose more water and become lighter. But at the same time, it gains in quality. The longer curing time allows the natural ingredients to fully combine and unleash their full effectiveness.


The weight of Aleppo soap is not just a matter of size. It is an indicator of the soap's maturity and quality, determined by the manufacturing process and curing process.

The next time you pick up a Jegit Aleppo soap in our shop, think about the careful processes that have determined its weight, and appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into each block. We hope that this article has provided you with a deeper understanding of the impressive product that is Aleppo soap. If you have any further questions, we are always available to assist you.
