Soap is great. Soap can be used to cleanse, decorate, and add fragrance to the air. Great soaps can be sniffed out as soon as you enter the room, like a great candle. I would say the top use for soap though, is definitely cleansing. What matters here? Well first, it needs to smell lovely, second, it needs to lather, and third, it needs to easily wash away, leaving no residue behind. There is not much worse than leaving a shower with rubbery-residue skin. These were the things that I kept in mind while testing YesterYear soaps. No lie, it passed in all three areas. The aroma was strong but not overpowering. The lather was unbelievable. It took on a creamy consistency, much like lotion. I rubbed my hands together longer than necessary because it just felt so nice. The soap rinsed away easily, taking every bit of grime with it. My hands felt super clean, and even moisturized! I’m used to my hands drying out after washing, especially during the winter. Hands down, best bar soap I have ever used. No lie.
So what is it about these soaps that sets them apart from the pack? Well one huge reason for their success is that these soaps are hand crafted. YesterYear is a soap company who is preserving the timeless craft of artisan soap making. The soap is all natural. No chemicals, preservatives, or synthetic fragrances are added. The herbal sopa is scented with essential oils and colored with organic herbs and plant extracts. The actual soap is made from 100% organic oils, and they are listed on the bar wrapper. And since they are completely natural, they are safe for the environment as well. Why is natural so important? The average person uses between 10-45 poads of soap, toiletries and cosmetics each year. Since you absorb 60% of substances applied to your skin, it’s rather imperative that you research what you slather on. Read their beautiful story of how they came to be, making soaps the same as the early settlers did over 100 years ago.
This will be the ONLY bar soap I use from now on. I know my guests will be pleased. Purchase your own directly from YesterYear. They have a great list of gift packages, perfect for mom’s stocking stuffer.
