Brunnort soap factory
A family story
In the 1950s, Bernard Bruère, a former agricultural worker, began to manufacture automotive maintenance products (for bodywork and tires) and a workshop soap for garages. Its dough soap was originally made with natural products.
And then two of his children took over. Dont Pascal who in the workshop (a former stable), mixes the ingredients in a baker's kettle, gets the Green Paste that it makes flow in green pots. Soap "The Green Pâte" was born. In order to formalize the organic characteristics of the soap, La Pâte Verte has now been certified by the ECOCERT body "ecological and biological cosmetic products".
Since 2019, Arthur Bruère has been the third generation of the company. Bernard's little son (founder in 1962) and Pascal's nephew, the manufacture of organic soap the Green Pâte remains in the family giron and the artisanal mode of production remains unchanged.

The magic of the green paste
The texture could be similar to marshmallow. This chlorophyll-colored organic soap is a scholarly blend of natural products: lin, sunflower, coconut, corn, all saponified (transformed in soap) with potash. The solvent-free mixture then incorporates calcium carbonate, soft almond oil and vegetable glycerin, imported straight from Colombia. The green color? A chlorophyll based colorant.
