'The Land' is made by the Women's Soap Co-operative of Beita, just south of Nablus. The newest of the Nablus soap brands, al-Ard are true gems. Since they work in relatively small batches and are connected with many local small producers, their olive oil is often among the very best. The cooperative's equipment is all stainless steel and run electrically, compared with other brands which use gas or wood burning furnaces to cook their soap. Rather than hand stamping their bars, the Co-op uses a press machine that makes a deep and visible imprint. Al-Ard's main market is in northern Palestine, in the areas around Nazareth and Jenin.


All the Nablus soap brands we sell are cooked in the traditional style out of olive oil, water, and soda, resulting in a soda-less bar of pure saponified olive oil.


Depends on the particular batch, but bars for all brands we carry usually measure about 2 x 3 x 3 inches and weigh 5 ounces on average.

Care Instructions

Olive oil soap gets better with age. Keep them in a dry place for an increasingly olive-tan colored, dense, sudsy, and less soap-smelling bar. They can be aged even faster in a sunny window.

I will only use this product going forward! The fact that there is only a few ingredients that can be pronounced and you actually know what they are goes a long way with me. It leaves my skin soft and I use it to wash my hair now…phenomenal!!!

Absolutely love this soap!

Most soaps leave my skin feeling dry and leave a residue on my skin that I can’t stand. This soap leaves my skin feeling hydrated and clean without leaving behind a film! I’m so happy I bought this, I’m looking forward to purchasing again in the future!
