Dr. Bronner’s peculiar peppermint soap

Family business on the rise

 

 

Emanuel Bronner (r.) was a self-styled philosopher-mystic who urged all to put aside their racial and national differences. Today, the firm is run by his grandsons David (l.) and Michael Bronner, who have preserved their grandfather’s soap formula and his vision for a united world, encapsulated in aphorisms like the one above.

You would find Reader’s Digest in the guest bathrooms, in my adolescence on the west shore of lake Starnberg. During my grown up New York days, you got a bottle of Bronner’s to read at the bathroom.

Bronner’s peppermint soap’s sparkling effect on the genitals didn’t stay unnoticed. The news spread by word-of-mouth. To all I know the peppermint liquid soap is also the most useful shampoo on the market.

 

 

Only if constructive-selfish work, perfecting first me, like every arctic owl-penguin-pilot-cat-swallow-beaver-bee, can I teach the Moral ABC.

Blind toward the end of his life, Bronner didn’t realize how many words of his “Moral ABCs” he’d crammed onto the label. Now it’s the brand’s signature. More so, the opinionated product is its marketing. Hundreds of tiny, preachy phrases cover every inch of a bottle of Dr. Bronner’s.

No wonder, Dr. Bronner’s is taking over soap dishes across America. Difference is built on opinion — and you’ll find a lot of it on each dispenser. With Bronner’s the product is the marketing.
