We’ve talked about my lifestyle changes plenty of times, I’m guessing you’re starting to sense the theme 😉 Dr. Bronner’s brand, among others, falls within the “new organic products Alex Duffy is obsessed with” category. This shave gel was my first purchase, and I love all his scents, but these 3 are my favorite:
I also LOVE Dr. Bronner’s Organic Hair Creme — going from RED to BLONDE has been harsh on my hair (as it would for anyone who went from one extreme color to another) and I use this stuff to fix it. After every shower I put it in my hair and leave-it-in as conditioner.
In this podcast featuring Dr. Bronner, they visit the company’s headquarters in Southern California, to see the close-knit family business in action. And you’ll learn how “the soap that cleans everything” embodies a spirit of invention, commitment to ethical business practices, and stands out in the health and beauty industry.

Q: Who is Dr. Bronner? And why did he start his company?
A: Before organic products were trendy, before “hippie chic” was a popular Pinterest search term, there was Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap Company. For decades, Dr. Bronner’s castile soap was affiliated with counter-culture folks drawn to its simplicity and “We are All-One!” messaging. And while it was founded by a German immigrant in the 1940’s, the generations that came after him — his sons, grandsons and great-grandsons — turned a small, loyal following into the $100 million business it is today. Essentially, Dr. Bronner’s has cracked the code for balancing social activism with a command of global business. In this episode, we visit the company’s headquarters in Southern California, to see the close-knit family business in action. And we learn how “the soap that cleans everything” embodies a spirit of invention, and a commitment to ethical business practices, allowing it to stand out in the health and beauty industry.
