I've had a serious weakness for handcrafted soap ever since I discovered its benefits about four years ago. Wonderful scents in my shower every day? Gentle on my skin? Natural soap without chemicals? Now that's soap to be excited about.
The YesterYear Soap Company aims to preserve the craft of artisan soap making. They sent me a beautifully packaged gift set of three soaps: Cool Fresh Aloe, Vanilla Honey, and Mango Papaya. These soaps look and smell good enough to eat! Each soap weighs 3.5 oz and is the perfect size to hold comfortably. I love it that they use all natural vegetable oils and color the soaps with organic herbs. The colors are very pretty but honestly, I would enjoy using these soaps even if they were the color of mud.
The irresistible scents in this three-bar sampler are due to pure essential oils from plant extracts. There are no synthetic fragrances, colorants or preservatives in any of these soaps. Last but not least, no animal testing was involved in making the soaps or their ingredients. Even the gift box is lined up with recycled lining. Kudos for making a great product that's also eco-friendly.
The all-natural ingredients include organic shea butter and olive, coconut, soybean and hemp oils. The soaps are a pleasure to use in the shower. They make just the right amount of lather, do not dry out my skin, and leave behind a fresh, clean scent.
Check out the full selection of all-natural soap offered by YesterYear Soap Company on their website. I am very curious about their Greek Yogurt soap and the scrub bars. Oh and the Year of Soap collection? A wonderful gift idea for Mother's Day (hint, hint).
One lucky U.S. reader will win a 3 bar gift set from YesterYear Soap Company.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. No compensation was received for this post.
