About YAYE

Welcome to Yaye.

My name is Melissa. I am a Warumungu and Luritja woman from Central Australia.

I grew up in Mparntwe Alice Springs, and through my many years working in Education, I have had the opportunity to collaborate with and learn from many incredible women.

I regard these women as my Yaye's, my sisters, who have always supported me. That's why I proudly named my business Yaye in honour of these women.

My husband Anthony, an Arrernte man from Alice Springs, and I have created this amazingly unique Aboriginal bath and body range. Our signature bush medicine ingredients are ethically sourced from the cellular extracts of plants native to Central Australia. As such, our products are a celebration of cultural knowledge and a showcase of ancient wisdom.

Yaye's products include Body Scrub, Body Wash, Bubble Bath, Bath Crystals, Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Butter. We are 100% Aboriginal-owned and 100% Australian-made.

Our products are like no other.
