Welcome to the ulu.care online shop
We are a small business located in the town of Narsaq in South Greenland. Since 2013, we have been producing organic homemade herbal soaps and balms - without any additives or perfumes.
We have selected the West Greenlandic ulu knife as our logo. Women have used the ulu for centuries for many different tasks, including flensing seals and cutting herbs.
Our soaps are a product inspired by Greenland's pristine wilderness. We use a wide range of herbs - as well as seaweed from the arctic sea - in our soaps. Although soap making is an age-old craft, it has never been part of the Greenlandic culture, despite the fact that our breathtaking island is one of the last regions on earth where wild herbs and medicinal plants grow in a pure environment. The climate is harsh and plants grow slowly, giving them time to develop their unique intensive aroma.
And everything is made by hand!
If you happen to be in Narsaq at Niels Bohrs Plads B-441, please feel free to drop by our little shop where you can buy our products. Opening hours during the summer are

In October 2014, ulu.care received an award from StartUp Greenland, a government organization for the advancement of private business in Greenland, for the idea and development of a small bar of organic soap
