'The Land' is made by the al-Ard women's co-operative of Nablus. Among the newest of the Nablus soap brands, al-Ard are true gems. They are the only bars whose edges are hand-trimmed so to make the bars more rounded. Al-Ard's main market is in northern Palestine, in the areas around Nazareth and Jenin.


Nablus soap is cooked out of olive oil, water, and an alkaline soda compound, resulting in a bar purely composed of saponified olive oil.


Bars measure about 2 x 3 x 3 inches and weigh an average 5 ounces each.

Care Instructions

Olive oil soap gets better with age. Keep them in a dry place for an increasingly olive-tan colored, dense, and sudsy bar. Sun exposure is great for the bars, but will fade the color of the wax-paper wrappers (which are printed with vegetable dyes).

Feel super clean

I really like this soap. It makes me feel very clean but doesn’t dry out my dry skin too much. I wouldn’t say it’s super moisturizing but it doesn’t dry me out more. The bar is big and chunky and hard for me to hold sometimes because my hands are not very big. They are average girl hands. No real scent to the soap but it does have a slight smell I would describe as a soap scent. It feels like it will last a while. It’s very dense. I love that it supports woman.

Excellent Quality and Long Lasting

This soap is excellent. No off-putting odor. Used with a wash cloth, this soap lathers up nicely. One bar of daily use has lasted two months. Will definitely order again.
