The world’s most expensive gold and diamond infused soap bar was displayed by the family-run Khan El Saboun business in the northern Lebanese town of Dahr El-Ain, just south of Tripoli.

The soap bar contains 17 grams of pure gold powder (24 karat), and three grams of diamond powder, mixed with pure oils, organic honey, aged oud, dates and it reportedly takes six months to manufacture.

“We succeeded in soap making and gave it various values, and it was purchased by dignitaries, presidents and kings in several countries in the world,” Khan El Saboun marketing director and founder's son Amir Hassoun said on Thursday.

The precious product "supports the continuation of a very important cultural heritage, an environmentally friendly industry, and the empowerment of women and youth who try to make change," Hassoun explained.

Khan El Saboun is at the heart of an Eco-village, which spans over 30,000-square-metre (322,917 square feet) area dedicated to organic plantations of medicinal plants used in the production of oils and soaps. It is also home to a soap museum, that offers its visitors a look into the distillation and soap production process, and includes 1,400 different kinds of soap.
