Who - family owned and run, natural product pioneers
5 generations have built the Dr Bronner's brand, with over 150 years of soap making experience.
Dr. Bronner’s is synonymous with Old World quality and time-honoured simplicity, which can be traced back to the family’s German-Jewish soapmaking tradition. Born in 1908 to a Jewish family that had been making soap since 1858, Emanuel Bronner was the third generation certified as a master soapmaker under the guild system of the time. In 1929, he brought his formulas for high-quality liquid and bar soaps to America, starting Dr. Bronner’s in its current form in 1948.
Why - a family business committed to making socially and environmentally responsible products of the highest quality, dedicating profits to help make a better world
From pioneering USDA certified organic personal care products, to creating Fair Trade projects across the world that ensure fair and just treatment of farmers and workers, to creating a socially responsible workplace in the U.S., Dr Bronner's strive to honour their heritage with progressive business practices, while devoting profits to worthwhile causes and charities worldwide. The Dr Bronner's family are huge animal activists, recently shedding light on the deplorable conditions under which conventional farm animals are raised. They embarked on a consumer education campaign to bring this issue to the forefront, and encourage consumers to familiarise themselves with the Animal Welfare Approved, Certified Humane, and Marine Stewardship Council certifications. Most of all, they (and we!) encourage consumers to be more aware of the practices they are endorsing by their purchases.
