Facial Soap by Zarqa Life Center
The Zarqa Life Center is a holistic response to the unique challenges faced by the most at risk communities in Zarqa, Jordan. We help improve the lives of Syrian refugee women and children as well as the most vulnerable local Jordanians by providing them with opportunities to pursue vocational skills such as soap making. Through our soap making course many of our ladies have been able to supplement their family income and take their futures into their own hands.
The olive oil soap our ladies make uses the traditional Levantine recipe commonly known as ‘Aleppo soap’, with cold-pressed virgin olive from farms in Ajloun, a hilly city in the north of Jordan. They infuse the deeply moisturising and cleansing olive oil with natural skin enhancing ingredients such as ginger, lemon, and rosemary.
