Emanuel Bronner was born in 1908 and was the third generation certified as a master soapmaker. In 1929, he moved to America, starting Dr. Bronner’s in its current form in 1948.
His soaps, renowned for their quality, versatility and eco-friendliness, enjoyed a small but loyal following in the early years. In the late 1960s, however, soap sales started to explode, due to the unsurpassed ecological quality combined with Emanuel Bronner’s urgent message to realize our transcendent unity across religious and ethnic divides. Word-of-mouth soon made Dr. Bronner’s the iconic soap of that era, and in the decades that followed became the number-one-selling brand of natural soaps in North America.

The 4th and 5th generations of the Bronner family who run the company today continue to make their unsurpassed soaps with care and integrity.
