What does Sapo mean?
The word soap is derived from the Latin word Sapo. The origin of the word sapo begins at Mount Sapo where ancient Romans sacrificed animals as offerings on wooden alters. As the alters burned, the ashes from the wood mixed with the fat from the animals and made its way to nearby streams where locals realized the cleaning effects of this byproduct. Soap gets its Latin name, Sapo, from Mount Sapo. We've gone a long way since these times. Our products are made with plant based oils.
