Dr. Bronner’s is synonymous with Old World quality and time-honored simplicity, which can be traced back to the family’s German-Jewish soapmaking tradition.
Their soaps, renowned for their quality, versatility and eco-friendliness, enjoyed a small but loyal following in the early years. However soap sales started to explode in the 1960's due to the unsurpassed ecological quality combined with Emanuel Bronner’s urgent message to realize our transcendent unity across religious and ethnic divides.
The 4th and 5th generations of the Bronner family who run the company today continue to make the soaps with care and integrity. Dr. Bronner’s continues its mission and commitment to building an engine for promoting and advancing positive social change.
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., they strive to honour our heritage with progressive business practices, while devoting profits to worthwhile causes and charities worldwide.
