Brooklyn Soap Company
Brooklyn Soap Company - Germany
The Brooklyn Soap Company is - even if the brand name does not give that impression- a German company, based in Hamburg. The three founders, Viktor, Felix and Jonas, were classmates but lost touch after their studies. It was only during an internship in New York that Felix and Victor met again. Here, they both had the idea of developing plant-based, quality men's cosmetics.
Back home in Hamburg, they brought onboard their school friend Jonas, now an industrial engineer. Research revealed that pure herbal men’s cosmetics with the Made in Germany trademark were hard to find, whether in pharmacies or health food stores. Thus in 2012 the Brooklyn Soap Company was established.
The name is a tribute to the birthplace of their business idea. The recipes, developed by the three founders themselves, are made from exclusive skincare products by the pharmacist Wilya Habicht in Braunschweig. The founders of the company exclude parabens, silicone oil and lauryl sulfates, and any substances of animal origin from their recipes. All their products are vegan, key ingredients being aloe, coconut, myrtle, peppermint, rosemary and nutmeg.
