Dr. Bronnerűs was founded in 1948 by Emanuel Bronner. He was a third- generation master soapmaker continuing his family's business. Their first product was a peppermint soap along with various health food seasonings. They are well known for the messages on their packaging- most notably "All-One", meant to promote peace and unity for all people. It is still a family business, and in 2000, they began selling their products worldwide.
