    Basically, the soap is the result of the combination of olive oil, water and caustic soda.  After the various ingredients have been heated and bonded together, the raw soap is poured into preliminary molds to dry. Once the soap has hardened sufficiently, it is cut into blocks by a soap cutter (the so-called " Tbeleh ") and piled into the characteristic round towers.

    Smaller blocks are pressed into a mold or simply stamped with a seal. The soap then has to dry for a few more weeks before it can be used. In addition to the characteristic blocks, olive soaps are also made, to which various essential oils, medicinal plants, Dead Sea mud or dried herbs are added.

    Where exactly does the soap come from in Palestine

    Nablus is a Palestinian city in the West Bank. The city was founded two kilometers east of where the biblical Mount Shechem used to be. The Romans called the city Neapolis. At almost 9,000 years old, Nablus is one of the oldest settlements in the world.

    Soap has been made there since the 10th century and has contributed significantly to the city's economic boom. The excellent quality of the olive oil from the Nablus area has contributed significantly to this.

    To this day, Nablus is home to a few soap factories. The most important is the  Nablus Soap Company , representing the well-known "Tbeleh" soap-making family from Nablus. Throughout its 400 year history of soap making, this family has maintained an excellent reputation. In fact, the reputation is so widespread that whoever cuts the soap into blocks is often referred to as 'Tbeleh' - an unmistakable homage to the family name.

    The soap has maintained its good reputation over the centuries. It peaked in the 19th century when traveling traders spread the product further across the Mediterranean and beyond - and the soap even made its way to the English royal court.
