The Camel
The company was established in 1880. They are a family-owned workshop in Nablus. 

The Camel's main market is in southern Palestine around Hebron. The imprint took its mascot from the camel trains used to carry in 
qilw soda ash and olive oil to Nablus from neighboring countryside.

The Two Keys
The Two Keys imprint is made in the historic Touqan family workshop in Nablus. Their original factory, as well as their family company, is more than 800 years old and a famous institution of Palestine, located in the center of the old city of Nablus. If al-Jamal has the greatest international recognition, the Two Keys imprint are known for the generous size of their bars which often exceed 5 oz. The Two Keys' primary market is in central Palestine in the areas around Nablus.

The Olive (Zaytoon)

From the Tbeleih family's Nablus Soap Company, dating to the 1600s.

Theirs is the only soap made with certified organic olive oil. Like The Land, it is certified Fair Trade as well.

Al Ard
'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.


Dimensions: 2 x 3 x 3 inches and weigh 5 ounces on average. 

Cooked in the traditional style out of olive oil, water, and soda, resulting in a soda-less bar of pure saponified olive oil. 

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.

Typically ships within 3-5 business days.
