INDIGENOUS MADE | HANDCRAFTED SOAPS
We combine Indigenous plant knowledge with our passion for creating high-quality natural soaps. The Northern landscape is a source of inspiration for us, shaping the essence of the self-care offerings we create. The boreal forest provides many ingredients including wild rose petals, fireweed and sage. The unique gifts each plant has to offer helps to nourish and cleanse even the most sensitive skin. We believe in keeping things natural. No harsh chemicals, parabens, artificial colourants or perfumes are added. We always keep it Yukon pure!
ALl Natural soap
Inspired by the Land
The Yukon is home to one of the largest areas of untouched wilderness left in the world. We take land stewardship seriously and offer you natural soap inspired by the land. One of our most popular soaps, Aurora's Passion is just one example.
From the breathtaking aurora borealis to the tranquil lakes and lush forests, the North's natural beauty instills a deep sense of purity that transcends into your self-care routine.

Honouring our Grandmothers
This line of soap is crafted with our grandmothers in mind. The plants they taught us to harvest are included and each soap name translates to 'grandmother' in one of eight Yukon Indigenous languages. The design of the box was thoughtfully created to match the 'granny hankies' often worn by them. Each soap bar is made with fair trade coconut oil and shea butter from our friends at Baraka Shea Butter. This high-quality shea butter contains Vitamins A & E, which can help many skin conditions, including eczema. Renowned for its benefits, shea butter takes this line of soap to new heights of luxury.
The Yukon Soaps Company Story
Indigenous-owned and operated by Joella Hogan and her team in Mayo, Yukon. The Yukon Soaps Company connects people to the heart of the North through their self-care offerings. With articles written by HGTV, Cosmopolitan, Chatelaine and more, Yukon Soaps continues to be highlighted as the community-driven, empowering brand it is. When Joella moved to her grandmother's community, she was looking for a way to connect people to culture and to land. And she has done just that—from getting Elders and local children outside to gather wild botanicals to offering soap workshops and business mentorship opportunities. By teaching their team to harvest plants and spend time on the land, they are supporting the (re)connection and healing of their community.
