The soap has the roots so much in Ancient Greece and concretely on the island of Lesvos, as well as in a lot of Eastern ancient populations of The East, particularly Mesopotamia already from 2300 BC The first soap was a mixture of ash, oil and aromatic herbs that were also used as therapeutic cosmetics.

In Ancient Greece are located the first testimonies from fables about soap on the island of Lesvos, near the sanctum of the Godess Artemis (Diana) where sacrifices took place and combustions of animals in honour of gods. So the animals remaining, mainly the grease with the ash where it was mixed with water of rain gave the first form of soap. Thus according to fable the soap takes its name from the poet woman Sapfo, from paraphrase of her name.

The Greek olive oil with the rich flora in therapeutical and aromatic herbs, gives soaps which worldwide are classified in the first places.
