Ralph Bronner of Dr. Bronner’s Soaps Dies at 78

Ralph Bronner, the man behind the magical hemp-formulated Dr. Bronner’s soaps, has died at the age of 78 from complications of a heart attack. Bronner—the first son of the brand’s creator Emanuel H Bronner—was the embodiment of good vibes and sought to spread love to the world through his not-normal soap company. He was a “spiritual giant” and a “walking Buddha of love and laughter,” says his family, and he always put positive social change before profits.
