In 1928 Walter Rau created a company making soap using traditional methods after being inspired by his parents who were soap makers before him. He then developed this concept with the intention of creating a gentle, soft and completely natural soap that could be used on the face and body. This led to him using a plant called a Speick which was renown for it's medicinal qualities. His discoveries when revolutionary, and it led to a huge demand in natural bodycare products made up from this simple plant. The company has since grown in leaps and bounds, but the family have stayed true to Walter Rau's beliefs and dreams.
