Introducing Portside Soap, a social and creative enterprise based in the magical Pilbara, created for our modern, socially conscious environment. 

Located on beautiful Kariyarra Country, Portside Soap is hand-poured in small batches directly from our soap studio, located within the Courthouse Gallery + Studio. Our soap is made using high quality, natural and ethically sourced ingredients making it ideal for all skin types.   

Profits from the sale of Portside Soap products are reinvested back into the local community, so when you purchase a soap from us, you are directly contributing to the ongoing creative development of Pilbara communities, as well as supporting a small business and social enterprise. 



The Pilbara Collection takes its cues from the natural and built environment of the Pilbara with the result being a high-quality product that entices the senses and evokes a desire to be connected with our ancient lands.

History of Portside Soap

The Junction Co. introduced Portside Soap, a creative start-up, as a direct response to the shortage of appropriate hand-washing supplies across the Pilbara as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020. This was supported by the  BHP Vital Resources Fund. 

The vision of Portside soap was to supply an all-natural, low-cost soap to Pilbara communities and businesses, and also provide an employment opportunity to someone affected by job loss as a result of COVID-19. 

This project is managed by the Junction Co. and was founded as part of the Portside precinct activation project.
