the yukon soaps company
The Yukon Soaps Company is Indigenous owned and operated by Joella Hogan. The company is all about a cleaner you and environment. The soaps are made from scratch just like grandmother’s cookies. They are all unique, authentic and handcrafted in Mayo, Yukon, Canada. The most important ingredient is the Yukon. The soaps are inspired by the land and Joella’s travels around the world. When you buy soap from us, you are casting a vote for natural, hand crafted and locally made products.
Although Joella is the main crafter, she is strongly supported by her community, family and friends.

I live in Mayo, the heart of the Yukon in northern Canada where people have a deep respect for the land and what it can provide for us. I am a lover of local, natural, ethical, high quality, authentic, made with love products!
I am a steward of the land, for clean water, for fair trade, for the power of plants. I care about the essential oil distillers, the palm forests, the orangutans, the sandalwood trees. All of these ethical issues matter when it comes to soap.
It is important for me to create products that have a small footprint, use local ingredients as much as possible and that continue to meet the needs of those who enjoy my products.
I find inspiration from the land around me and from the wonderfully creative people that I surround myself with. I strive to live a simple, self sufficient lifestyle and support other makers of things “homemade”.
