Why our herbal soaps are different

  • Presented in the form of a bar soap, our handmade soaps do not require any preservative to stay stable and it’s more eco-friendly because no plastic bottle is required to store it.
  • Cleansed with spring water in pollution-free Yangmingshan National Park, Taiwan, the mugwort grown by our own Yuan Farm is of the finest quality, free of pesticide and chemicals used to speed up growth.
  • Our herbs are exposed to an environment close to wilderness, growing alongside weeds and pests. This means that only the most resilient herbs survive and are eventually infused into our handmade soaps.
how yuan soaps are made

How Yuan soaps are made

Each bar of Yuan handmade soap has a relatively long condensation period of 60 days because it’s cold-processed. In the cold process, no heat is involved, hence ensuring that the goodness of ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil and olive oil are preserved, allowing your skin to be nourished with moisture when using our handmade soaps.

Each soap has a unique formula comprising herbs for different skin conditions and demographics. We know exactly what goes into each soap.

How to Use

Lather the soap well on your hands first, then apply on your face and body (not apply directly on your body). Store your soap in a soap net to drain it completely after use.

Invest in a soap net as it speeds up the foaming process and helps the soap last a relatively long period of time. Soap nets also help to exfoliate and remove dull surface cells to reveal brighter, healthier skin.

Key Ingredients

Artemisia vulgaris extract

With a natural soothing herbal scent, artemisia vulgaris or mugwort combats skin problems like eczema, body acne, atopic dermatitis, itch and fungal infections, making it a valuable traditional herb to Asians for its anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties.


Olea europaea (olive) fruit oil

Like many other oils, olive oil locks in moisture. It is rich in fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K that can improve overall skin health. Vitamin E is topically used throughout history to treat a variety of skin conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis.

It also acts as an antioxidant preventing oxidation which produces free radicals that cause cell damage. Its antioxidant property helps prevent early signs of aging as well.

Verbena officinalis leaf extract

It is a perennial plant believed to have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antispasmodic, and analgesic (pain-relieving) properties beneficial to one’s health.
