Production: Toukan Soap Factory (Nablus, PS)
Material: Olive oil, lime, basic sodium
For over a century, the Toukan family has been one of the champions of the Nabulsi soap makers and is still today maintaining the traditional craft in its original form. The formula for the soap is strikingly simple, a combination of virgin olive oil, water, locally supplied lime, and a basic sodium compound made by mixing the powdered ashes of the barilla plant, which grows along the banks of the River Jordan. The finished product is ivory-colored and has almost no scent.
