Introducing Portside Soap, the new social enterprise that will change how we approach bodycare in our modern, socially-conscious environment.

Developed in response to the extraordinary circumstances presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, Portside Soap has become more than just a soap product. It’s a business model that has proven to be successful, and provides ongoing benefits to Pilbara communities.

Profits from the sale of Portside Soap products will be reinvested back into creative programming, which will see people engaged in their communities and build pride for the places they call home.

Portside Soap also partners with Pilbara community and not-for-profit groups to donate soap and will eventually partner with them to create unique limited-edition products.

Portside Soap is made with 100% natural and ethically sourced ingredients, and is perfect for all skin types.

All our products are made without:

  • fragrance
  • preservatives
  • alcohol
  • non-naturally derived ingredients

History of Portside Soap

The Junction Co. is excited to introduce Portside Soap, a new creative start-up directly responding to the shortage of appropriate hand-washing supplies across the Pilbara, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The vision of Portside soap is to supply low cost soap to Pilbara community and businesses, provide an employment opportunity to someone affected by a job loss as a result of COVID-19 and provide families at home with online learning content, and soap kits, to capacity-build our community.

This project is managed by the Junction Co, as part of the West End precinct activation project, and supported by the BHP Vital Resources Fund.

Inspired by everyday living, the Home range is gentle enough to be used by the whole family – from washing hands, to bath time with the little ones, and removing dirt, grease and grime for the outdoor worker; there’s nothing this soap can’t do.
