Soapmaking in Palestine goes back over 1400 years. Modern soapmaking is a descendant of soaps first made in Palestine and in Iraqi cities beginning in the 7th century. The soap was produced with vegetable oils such as olive oil or aromatic oils like thyme oil. Sodium lye or ash soda, a product of burning saltwater plants, was added as a saponification agent for the first time. This is largely the same formula used in making soap sold in stores today. Historically, soapmaking has been one of the key industries in Nablus. Its soap was famous and exported all over the East and into the Mediterranean.
