Personal care products
Family-owned and run, Dr. Bronner’s honors the vision of its founder Dr. E.H. Bronner by making socially and environmentally responsible products of the highest quality, while dedicating its profits to help make a better world. Now the top-selling brand of organic & fair trade bodycare in the U.S., Dr. Bronner’s was founded in 1948 by Emanuel Bronner, a third-generation master soapmaker from a German-Jewish soapmaking family. He used the labels on his superb ecological soaps to spread his message that we must realize our transcendent unity across religious & ethnic divides or perish: “We are All-One or None!” Today, Dr. Bronner’s continues its 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 sustaining a socially responsible workplace at its manufacturing plant in San Diego County. All-One!
