Nabulsi soap (Arabic: صابون نابلسي‎‎, ṣābūn Nābulsi) is a type of castile soap produced only in Nablus in the West Bank, Palestine. Its chief ingredients are virgin olive oil (the main agricultural product of the region), water, and an alkaline sodium compound. The finished product is ivory-colored and has almost no scent. Traditionally made by women for household use, it had become a significant industry for Nablus by the 14th century. In 1907 the city's 30 Nabulsi soap factories were supplying half the soap in Palestine. The industry declined during the mid-20th century following destruction caused by the 1927 earthquake and later disruption from the Israeli military occupation. As of 2008, only two soap factories survive in Nablus. The old Arafat soap factory has been turned into a Cult

  • الصابون النابلسي هو نوع من الصابون تشتهر مدينة نابلس بفلسطين بصناعته منذ القدم. مكونه الرئيسي هو زيت الزيتون البكر (المنتج الزراعي الرئيسي في المنطقة)، ويتميز عن غيره من الأنواع الشهيرة الأخرى مثل: الصابون الحلبي والطرابلسي بلونه الأبيض. حيث يحضر من زيت الزيتون والصودا الكاوية، ويتم طبخه على نار حامية وصبه على الأرض، ثم يتم تقطيعه يدوياً ويكاد لا يملك أي رائحة. يرجع تاريخ صناعة الصابون في نابلس إلى القرن العاشر الميلادي ، في عام 1907م كان هناك 30 مصنع للصابون النابلسي في المدينة يقومون بتوريد نصف احتياجات فلسطين من الصابون . تدهورت صناعته خلال منتصف القرن 20 إثر الدمار الناجم عن زلزال عام 1927م بالإضافة إلى الاحتلال الإسرائيلي. واعتباراً من عام 2008 لم يتبقَ من هذه المصانع في نابلس سوى مصنعين فقط. من بينهم مصنع عرفات القديم للصابون الذي تحول إلى مركز إحياء وتنمية التراث الثقافي.
