Located on the coast of the Arctic Ocean in Nunavut, Uasau Soap (pronounced ooh-ah-sow) draws its inspiration from prehistoric Inuit tradition and the Nuna. In Inuktitut, Nuna means everything found on the land and in the sea: water, ice, animals, plants, rocks – even the spirits and memories of our ancestors. By capturing the magic and wisdom of the Nuna, each of our hand-made small-batch products replenishes and nourishes your skin.
Sustainably Sourced Indigenous Soaps made with Traditional Inuit Practices
We craft each product from local ingredients, harvested through sustainable and traditional practices. Bowhead whale oil, for example, comes from local community hunts in Nunavut. Each and every bowhead whale hunt has its own story.
The entire community comes together to cooperate in a life-sustaining effort passed down for countless generations. Inuit are known for their resourcefulness and not wasting any part of an animal. And Uasau Soap follows suit, only using bowhead whale oil from community hunts.
