It began with a little old lady named Maria who lived far away, in Greece.
One day Maria received news that her first grandchild was born. (“Yaya” means “grandma” in Greek). She was so overjoyed that she decided secretly to give the baby a gift. She opened a bank account in his name the same day.
Maria didn’t have much money, but every month, year after year, she deposited a few dollars from her small pension into the account for her grandson’s future. She kept the secret carefully, telling no one. By the time she died she had forgotten about it.
Many years after Yaya Maria passed, her son was sorting through a box of her belongings. To his surprise, a booklet fell out. It was the ledger for the forgotten account that Maria had opened for her grandson. The son couldn’t believe his eyes! Immediately, he called his son – Yaya Maria’s grandson – to tell him about the gift from above, sent by his late grandmother.
The young man was overwhelmed by the thoughtfulness of his grandmother. That grandson is our founder, Andy.
Andy had just completed his cancer treatment and he and his wife had developed all-natural products to keep him safe in the future. He was thinking about how he could make these products available to others and Grandma Maria’s gift and its timing helped Andy start his soap business.
In gratitude, he named the company after his grandma - Yaya Maria's. And just as Grandma Maria put aside a few dollars for her young one, we donate parts of our proceeds to help children achieve a better future. This way, Yaya Maria’s legacy continues to help today’s young ones.
