Nablus is the second largest city of the West Bank, founded by the Romans in 72 a.C. and originally called Flavia Neapolis (“New City of the emperor Flavius Vespasianus”).
This city, after which the homonym detergent is named, boasts a long tradition of soap manufacturing. We have certain evidence of its production since the beginning of the X century, when olive oil-based soap used to be exported from the Nablus soap factories to the whole Arabic world and in Europe.
It is said that the soaps from Nablus were Queen Elisabeth I of England’s very favorites.
