J.R. Liggett made his first bar of soap at the age of five, alongside his Great Aunt Ann in Denman, Nebraska. Back then, the same bar of soap was used for everything, whether it was bathing, dishes, clothes, and cleaning. Years later, in 1980, J.R. discovered an old recipe for hair soap stuck in a book. He cooked it up, liked what he found, and the rest is history. Today, J.R.LIGGETT'S soap is brewed in a traditional style almost 100 years old, and is as natural as they come, with equal focus on the environment and its customer's well being.
