Our skin is super special and has a huge impact on our lives; which is why it is so important for us to take care of it. We also know that everyone’s skin is different, and what is perfect for one person may not be the best solution for someone else! All of us here at The Yorkshire Soap Company wanted to offer a beautiful range of soaps that each had their own benefits, and worked well with different skin types; and therefore, the Fresh Deli Collection was born! So whether your skin needs a little touch of hydration, or you want something that will really cleanse and absorb impurities; we are sure that we can find the perfect soapy solution for you!
Lettuce & Cucumber
Refreshing and mouth watering; lettuce and cucumber are two of the most revitalising vegetables, and are certainly packed full of wonderful vitamins that will keep your skin hydrated. This heavenly soap bar is enriched with natural plant extracts that can moisturise dry and sensitive skin. Cucumber is also perfect for soothing and softening skin; did you know that cutting and boiling cucumbers actually releases an aroma that is sure to create a calm and relaxing environment? Lucky for you, there’s no need to do that, as this natural soap bar is already bursting with fragrance!
Aloe Vera, Chamomile & Lavender
Aloe Vera has been used in health and beauty for centuries, and acts as the perfect natural remedy for sore or tired skin that may be in need of something soothing. With the added bonus of a beautiful floral aroma, this Fresh Deli soap bar has calm written all over it! Both lavender and chamomile have been known to help people with sleep; and sometimes our skin needs a rest too! Using natural soaps made with pure essential oils are a great way to give your skin a break, as they tend to be much less irritant and a better alternative for sensitive skin.
The ultimate soap bar for those with super sensitive skin - this Pure Hemp Fresh Deli bar is fragrance free, and therefore much less likely to irritate skin! So if you are always worrying about what soaps you can and can’t use in case you react; choosing fragrance free soaps is a good start. However, we always suggest that you perform a test patch before you indulge! You can find out how to do this at the end of this blog.
Lavender & Vitamin E
And relax...lavender and it’s calming properties are well known to many; but how does blending this with vitamin E oil help skin? Well, we have answers! Vitamin E can help to fight off ‘free radicals’ that take part in the aging process; meaning that our Lavender and Vitamin E Fresh Deli soap bar is suitable for mature skin. It’s also great for softening and moisturising hands, face and body.
Carrot & Orange
Our Carrot & Orange Fresh Deli soap bar is simply brilliant for dull skin, due to it’s brightening properties; and here’s why! Both oranges and carrots are great sources of vitamin C, a nutrient that really helps to uplift you and your skin! So not only will your skin be glowing; but you will feel amazing too. And remember - you always look beautiful when you’re smiling!
So many people suffer from problem skin, such as acne, dryness and eczema; and although we usually need specialist products to help reduce and remove problem skin; sometimes it’s nice to indulge into something different. And what better way to do that than with our Fullers Earth Fresh Deli soap bar, which is infused with tea tree and lavender oils, and enriched with Fullers earth clay. Fullers earth has super absorbing qualities that help to remove impurities on the skin, leaving it feeling cleansed and revitalised. Blended with lavender and tea tree, this beautifully fragranced soap bar is truly luxurious, and has been created for those with problem skin in mind. Don’t forget to patch test products before use, as everyone’s skin is unique to them!
Crisp, fruity and fresh - what more could you want from a natural soap bar? This summer scented Fresh Deli bar is a real treat for youthful skin and those prone to oily skin. The astringent properties of this soap help to combat shine and reduce oil on skin, leaving you feeling refreshed and revived. So why not give this gorgeous green soap bar a go? An apple a day keeps shine away!

Don’t forget to perform a patch test!
With any new product touching our skin, we should always make sure its suitable to use and make sure our skin likes it first, before going mad and getting truly lathered in the stuff!
There are many ways to perform a patch test on your skin; but our co-owner, Warren, has listed some of his top tips and hints to getting that patch test right.
When performing a patch test on a new product, the best areas to test on are generally areas with thinner more delicate skin, areas that are also covered and are only seen by a select few! The best areas are the crease of your arm or the side of your neck and back of your knee. This is so that you get the most accurate result by testing on skin that is more likely to react.
You only need a small amount of the product; enough so that you can see if anything happens, but small enough to sort out if you react.
Everyone is different in terms of how long a reaction will take (if one happens) - some people react within minutes, and some take hours. Everyone's skin is different and not all skin reacts the same. To be certain, it’s usually better to leave it for 24 hours, just to make sure! For gradual reactions, you may need to test for a lot longer.
Make sure you only test one product at a time.
Please do not worry, reactions tend to happen because of allergens in the pure essential oils we use or the base ingredients it's made with and very rarely occur. Our products are very gentle and all have been through rigorous testing and we use the very best ingredients in all of our products. Always read the label before performing a patch test.
Our deli bars are not a medicine or cure; if you have severe skin conditions please refer to a skin specialist of doctor.
Enjoy, indulge but please do not eat!
