Yager & May is a handmade natural soap company started by me, Rachel Simons, in 2014. I work in a small studio in the old shipyards of Fredrikstad, Norway. I love making something that people enjoy and want to use every day. Something that reflects where I live and who I am.
My soap is made using the traditional cold process method. The main ingredient is olive oil, blended to my own recipe with many other oils and butters to produce soap that lathers well and nourishes the skin. The entire process is done by hand from start to finish; the mixing, the pouring, the cutting and the packaging.
Yager and May soap is both art and chemistry, both useful and beautiful, an everyday substance made unique. It is soap with a story.
