Dr Bronner’s was founded in 1948 by Emanuel Bronner, a third-generation master soapmaker, and the company is still family owned and run today. He created his range of soaps to promote world peace, printing a message on each bottle that we must learn to live together irrespective of religious or ethnic divides. The company continues to work to make the world a better place, for example by being active in the fight against GMO crops and working for stricter standards covering organic products.

Dr Bronner’s makes a range of fair trade and organic products, with their icon soaps at the heart, but now also including lotions, lip balms and even toothpaste. They source ingredients in the most sustainable way they can, working closely with producers in developing countries such as Sri Lanka and Ghana. Their soaps have a wide range of uses, from washing yourself, to washing your pet, doing the dishes and even cleaning the floor.
