MOMS! The kids will LOVE bath time now!

Introducing our ‘Triple Chocolate Sundae’ soap.

What kid doesn’t like chocolate (or adults for that matter).

The loaf is our fragrant ‘chocolate’ that comes with a soap cutter and a bamboo cutting board. You can cut as little or as much as you need. No need to waste soap anymore.

This loaf was blended with children in mind. It is mild, all natural and has a fragrance that the kids will love. But the great thing about our ‘chocolate’ soap is the fact that the fragrance doesn’t linger on your skin. Plus, it is great for sensative skin.

The rectangular bamboo cutting board is harder than maple and denser than wood, giving you a more cut resistant surface and less bacteria build-up. Bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant in the world. In fact, certain types of bamboo can grow up to 8 feet per day. This astounding growth is because bamboo is a grass – not a tree. When harvested, up to 1/3 of the bamboo will fully grow back within one year. This makes bamboo an excellent alternative to hardwoods

All natural ingredients including: Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Soybean Oil, Hemp Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Water.

Our soap contains:
NO Preservatives!
NO Animal Products!
NO Petroleum Products!
NO Parabens!
NO Lauryl Sulfate!

The loaf weighs about 20oz and is approx 6″ long.

Plus: We will send 3 free samples of other fragrant soap with your order.

WIN a loaf of YesterYear Soap with a Cutter & Cutting Board

JUST VISIT OUR FACEBOOK PAGE TO ENTER!

This is a great addition to the guest bath. You wouldn’t give your guests a dirty towel so why offer them a used bar of soap? Your visitors can cut their own bar of fresh, all natural handcrafted soap.

The loaf is our fragrant Lilac; one of our most popular blends. Our soap cuts very easily and with a full loaf you can cut as little or as much as you need.

This blend is for those who like their florals on the clean, fresh side of flirtatious. A solid lilac fragrance with a note of wisteria.

This is a creamy, lathery skin loving soap. It has a light lilac scent — a lovely fragrance that is floral and sweet without feeling overpowering. The scent will linger on your skin in just the right amount.

With a handsome thick beechwood board, this makes for the perfect cutting surface for your cutting your soap to any size you choose. It comes with a replaceable stainless steel cutting wire which is warranted against breakage. The cutter also has rubber ‘feet’ to protect counter tops and prevent slippage.

You can purchase this product from our online store.

Win a ‘Year of Soap’!

Just for all of you that LOVE all natural products.

Here is a chance to win a 12 bar collection of our premium all natural and handcrafted soap.

These scented soaps include such fragrances as Lilac, Fruit Slices, Mango Papaya and Vanilla Rose.
This would make a wonderful gift!

Don’t give another gift of flowers or candy. Give that special person a unique and thoughtful gift that is charming, useful and healthy.
The assortment contains 12 different scented bars of our 3.5 oz ‘hand & face’ soap. All of our soap is hand made and hand cut so they may vary slightly in size and weight.

Click HERE to ENTER

The next time you walk down the soap aisle at your favorite store enjoying the fresh, clean scents and the bright colorful packaging, pay attention to the labels. The vast majority of the products on the shelf don’t say ‘soap’ on their labels. They might be called beauty bars, moisturizing bars, or body bars, but not soap. That’s because these bars aren’t actually soap and can’t legally claim to be; they’re detergents. The manufacturers have removed most of the ‘good’ stuff that occurs in the soap making process, and replaced it with synthetic lathering agents and harsh chemicals. These cheap, plentiful detergent bars are not only bad for your skin, but they’re also bad for the planet, too.

All natural ingredients including: Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Soybean Oil, Hemp Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Water.

Our soap contains:
NO Preservatives!
NO Animal Products!
NO Petroleum Products!
NO Parabens!
NO Lauryl Sulfate!

Can’t wait to win? You can purchase this collection HERE

What is ‘Natural’? A Great Article from Abe’s Market

Here is a great article about the discussion over what is or is not ‘natural’
YesterYear Soap Company uses Abe’s Market as one of its online retailers.

We’ve been chatting about this very question a lot at Abe’s and have written up what we think it means below (this also lives on our site here). But we’re equally curious about what it means to you. So we’re asking everyone we know and will be posting their responses here, every week, starting next Monday. Know someone we should ask? Please suggest in comments.

But first, our thoughts.
What is natural? It’s a pretty straightforward question, yet in today’s world the answer is anything but. It should mean purer, safer, from the earth. But when it comes to products, it has been overused—and often misused. Which leaves those of us using the word responsibly in the lurch. Consumer trust of the word natural is at an all time low, especially as it has no government certification to back it up — unlike organic. It’s tricky.

At Abe’s we still believe in natural. We’ve had many lengthy staff discussions about the word and the upshot is: We’re not giving it up. We take the natural—ness of our natural products very seriously. And we value what people put on and in their bodies, as well as what they bring into their homes. We care deeply about the impact consumer products have on our shared environment. So when we use the word natural, it does mean purer, safer, from the earth. We think savvy shoppers can tell the difference between the real deal and marketing hype. And we’re always sharing what natural means when it comes to the products we sell—including what it means to our Sellers. We’re also here for you. If you have any questions about our truly natural products, please get in touch—either with us or with our Sellers directly. And please join the conversation about what natural means to you on our blog, on Facebook, and on Twitter.

How We Choose Products

We haven’t reinvented the wheel. But we have surrounded ourselves with an amazing group of experts, industry veterans, and consumer gurus. And we’ve delved into the latest science and manufacturing concerns. We’re well aware that due to a lack of government regulations regarding the word natural, it’s up to the consumer to figure out if any given product is up to the claim. There are several reputable associations with criteria offering natural product certifications in a few industries, and we look to them. We like some better than others. We suggest our Sellers consider these certifications, but we don’t require that they have them. We also talk to our Sellers and get to know how they operate. You can learn a lot from chatting one-on-one with the people behind the products. And then there’s our team of trained scouts and buyers who read literally thousands upon thousands of ingredient lists—item by item. Obsessively. All of this coupled with a tremendous dose of good common sense helps us arrive at what we do—and don’t—sell. If you find something lacking with our approach, or have any questions about our products, please get in touch. We’re eager for your comments.

You can visit Abe’s Market here.

About our ‘Charitable Giving’ Program

Battered women’s shelters provide a safe haven for women and their children who are the victims of violent and abusive family members. Many of the women and children who find themselves at women’s shelters arrive without any of their belongings. Sometimes escaping an abusive situation doesn’t leave any time to grab personal items, let alone toiletries. Of course shelters are non-profits with limited resources, so while they do the best they can, their help is often minimum.
That’s where YesterYear Soap Charitable Giving comes into play. Their regular donations of beautiful soaps mean the world to battered women who just left their lives behind. YesterYear Soap Company is a retail and wholesaler of high-quality handcrafted soap located in Holly Springs Mississippi. YesterYear Soap Products come in fabulous colors and scents for all to enjoy. As part of the normal manufacturing process, they find themselves with ‘extra’ soap bars, and instead of throwing them away they donate them to women’s shelters.

Here is what some of our Blog friends have said about our program:

Springtime has always been about good deeds for me. A fresh new start after the cold winter months, the feeling of happiness in the air, and the re-emergence into the beautiful weather. I can’t help but smile. Today we’d like to take a moment to recognize a company that gives back to their community and pat them on the back. Say hello to YesterYear Soap Company! Read more..

Reduce Chemicals to Increase Fertility

by Rachel Lincoln Sarnoff, Executive Director, Healthy Child Healthy World

On Valentine’s Day, the last thing you want to think about is whether toxic chemicals will prevent you from starting a family. But with rates of infertility on the rise and testosterone levels in decline, we may need to factor in chemical exposures to the future of our love lives. Infertility affects one in eight couples in the United States—that’s 7.3 million people who have trouble with pregnancy, according to the CDC. And although it was once thought that infertility was a “female problem,” medical evidence shows that infertility is an equal opportunity problem: One-third of infertility is attributed to the female, one-third to the male and one-third to combined factors from both male and female.
