End 1996: Creation of an import-export business in France, recovery of the family business in Syria. As a trained physician, Manar Najjar recognizes the beneficial effects and virtues of Aleppo Soap and decides to spread awareness in France. This marks the beginning of the distribution of Aleppo Soap in France and across Europe. Being a family business, it is Manar’s brother Samer and their grandfather who deal with the company in Syria.

Najel products are marketed in a total of over 26 countries. The company president, Manar Najjar, assures the connection between the two entities in France and Syria, to guarantee the transparency of raw materials and full traceability from production to distribution.
