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 their ancestors. By capturing the magic and wisdom of the Nuna, each of their handmade small-batch products replenishes and nourishes your skin. Ingredients are sustainably sourced and made from local ingredients using traditional Inuit practices. Uasau is a family-owned business run by husband and wife team, Bernice Kootoo Clarke and Justin Clarke.
