Come with us to Distillerie Bleu, Provence to see how we sustainably create our Lavender Soap

Lavender is one of our original scents created by Emanuel Bronner, and is still just as popular today as it was then, with celebrity fans such as Bella Hadid, Meghan Markle, Gwyneth Paltrow and Natalie Portman often referencing this soap scent in interviews.

First launched in 1978, Lavender was our first ever bar soap and was then subsequently also made into the All-One Magic Castile Liquid Soap. Lisa Bronner describes the natural Dr. Bronner’s Lavender scent as “A rich, cultivated scent, that is passionate and refined. It is deep, rich, lush, almost overwhelming – a truly beautiful scent that is much more delicate than synthetic versions.” The pure, natural, and organic blend of Lavandin and Lavender oils used in Dr. Bronner’s products come from the Distillerie Bleu Provence in Nyons, Provence so we thought we’d do a spotlight on this beautiful location so you can learn a little more about our famous Lavender scent.


Distillerie Bleu Provence

In the early 2000s, David and Michael Bronner became committed to sourcing all major raw ingredients certified organic and certified fair trade. Dr. Bronner’s became the largest personal care company certified under USDA’s National Organic Program and is now also committed to having its supply chain become Regenerative Organic CertifiedÔ (ROC). With the support of Dr. Gero Leson, Dr. Bronner’s Vice President of Special Operations, the relationship with Distillerie Bleu Provence began in 2017, to directly source organic Lavandin and Lavender for our Lavender scented products.
