Use Top-Selling Brand’s Peppermint Soap and Other Body Care Products to Beat the Heat this Summer
August 1, 2021
LONDON, UK – Dr. Bronner’s, the family-owned maker of the top-selling natural brand of soap in North America and other organic certified and fair trade certified personal care products, is promoting its Peppermint range to help stay cool during the hot weather this season. Known for its iconic, multi-use, and biodegradable soaps, Dr. Bronner’s has inspired dedicated fans of the brand for decades due to the invigorating cooling sensation created when using its original plant-based Peppermint soap.
“Being from Southern California, we know the secret to beating the heat is the Peppermint tingle after washing with our soap. Because our products are non-toxic, safe, and effective for keeping the whole family clean, they can be used for laundry, dishes, floors, and even bathing pets, who probably need some relief from the heat, too,” said Michael Bronner, President of Dr. Bronner’s and grandson of company founder Emanuel Bronner.
Made without synthetic ingredients, the Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint range include soaps, as well as lip balms, hygiene spray, and hair care to ensure skin, hair, and lips are refreshed despite the heat. Through its website, social media, and retail spaces (where possible), Dr. Bronner’s will be offering tips for how to enjoy staying cool and clean with its multi-use products for personal hygiene and home throughout the hottest time of the year, as well as running offers across the website drbronner.co.uk.
“Additionally, the farmers who supply the peppermint oil we source from India are helping keep the planet cool by utilizing regenerative farming practices that can help reduce carbon emissions, so you can help cool the planet while using our Peppermint range to stay cool on a hot day,” Mike Bronner continued.
Dr. Bronner’s sources all of its major raw materials for its products from certified organic and fair-trade projects around the world, supporting thousands of smallholder farmers, including the sourcing of palm oil from Ghana, coconut oil from Sri Lanka, and olive oil from Palestine and Israel. The fair trade and organic peppermint oil used in Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint products is grown in India using regenerative organic farming practices—which help restore soil health and sequester atmospheric carbon, thus mitigating the effects of climate change.
In the UK, Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint range is an everyday essential during summer. “Our increasingly hot and humid summers require creative methods for beating the heat,” said says Cliff Moss of Healthy Sales Group who works with Dr. Bronner’s in the UK. “We will be sharing tips on how to stay cool this summer with our Peppermint range and common household items. We know it’s important for many of our customers that our Peppermint is grown with regenerative practices that are helping store carbon and move away from degenerative farming practices that are a leading cause of our uncomfortably hot summers.”
