About RAD Soap Co.
From its early stages as a small company beginning in a miniscule kitchen and selling at local farmers markets, RAD Soap Co. has brought a twist to the natural body care market. The company’s highly advanced proprietary method for the manufacturing of natural body care products and utilization of obscure and unusual ingredients, such as hemp, mushrooms and home-made botanical plant cell extractions, have allowed the founders to develop and launch a fresh new line for the natural body care industry. The RAD Soap culture was born when Kerber dedicated long hours to finding a natural relief for her son’s eczema. Today, the company remains firm on its initial values and beliefs and maintains a 100 percent natural, 100 percent vegetarian, 98 percent vegan, and 100 percent cruelty-free product line. RAD Soap Co. products are available at over 200 wholesale locations nationwide, including Whole Foods Markets, Mrs. Green’s Natural Market, and Central Garden Distributors, as well as in select international markets, such as South Korea.
