Eliz Soaps are made by using natural olive oil extracted from the olive trees from the beautiful countryside of Cyprus. By putting the difference in quality, Eliz Sabunları produces natural handmade Cypriot soaps. The founder and the director of the company, chemistry engineer, Memduh Erişmen uses his self-developed special formula in soapmaking with over ten years of experience. By adopting the principles of naturalness and health, Eliz Sabunları does not contain any kind of perfume, colour or preservatives.
Your experience will start with meeting with our 300 to 500 years old olive trees, which is located at Dikmen - 10 minutes away from Nicosia, in the middle of a lovely, untouched village. During this workshop, we’ll demonstrate how to traditionally make soap using natural oils. Preparation, adding oils, blending and mixing are key for soap making. We believe you learn by doing, so you will have the chance to get your hands messy mixing your own batches!
We will also introduce you to some of our yummy Cypriot pastries, home-made Cypriot lemonade and Cypriot coffee.
You’ll leave with an idea on history and basic chemistry of soap making, quick technical details, Cypriot hospitality and two beautiful hand-made natural soaps that can be used as Cypriot souvenirs both with their quality and package.
