With the summer holiday season on the horizon and many of us choosing trips which embrace the great outdoors, Dr. Bronner’s is excited to once again launch its Adventure Soap campaign to highlight the uses that Dr. Bronner’s soaps can do to make staying clean easy and ecological when travelling and exploring nature.
As the perfect soap for outdoor recreation, Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Soaps are available as both a concentrated liquid formula and a bar soap and are made with simple ingredients that are non-toxic, highly effective, and safe for families, pets, and the Earth.
Not only are Dr. Bronner’s soaps made with fair trade certified and organic certified oils, they are also widely known as one of the most versatile soaps available. Dr. Bronner’s soaps may be used for cleaning in a variety of ways while hiking, camping, and during a variety of adventures outdoors, including:
- Personal hygiene, during solar showers and washing hands, (Tip: the original Peppermint-scented soap on a damp cloth or scarf is an excellent way to cool off after an intense activity);
- Stand in oral care if you forget your toothpaste;
- Washing dishes after a campfire meal;
- Handwashing clothes, muddy boots, water shoes;
- Cleaning sporting equipment;
- Washing and rinsing fruits, vegetables, or any wild edibles that have been safely identified.
Michael Bronner, President of Dr. Bronner’s and grandson of founder Emanuel Bronner says “throughout our history, travellers, backpackers, van lifers, and other outdoor enthusiasts have been known to take Dr. Bronner’s multi-use soaps on adventures and long hikes outdoors because of its safe, effective, and biodegradable plant-based ingredients, and because of their versatility,” said “A little of our concentrated liquid soap goes a long way, so you can lighten your load wherever you go.”
“Our outstanding reputation in our home country of the United States as an ‘adventure soap’ is so well-established that the U.S. National Park Service mentions Dr. Bronner’s as the only brand of soap recommended on a packing list for those who are planning to explore the Grand Canyon National Park, one of the most significant natural wonders in North America,” Bronner continued.*
