According to the World Health Organization (WHO) and The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), over 5,000 children die every day from ailments that could have been prevented just by washing their hands. That is a shocking statistic that Bridget Hilton, the founder of Jack’s Soap, could not live with.
Bridget Hilton took action and founded a for-profit company that donates one bar of soap, for every one sold. Based in Los Angeles, CA, Jack’s Soap products are approved by PETA. The luxurious soaps are manufactured with organic ingredients, are vegan and cruelty-free, and use recycled packaging materials. Jack’s Soap is committed to using only natural, sustainable, and locally sourced ingredients.

To ensure people observe good hygienic practices, Jack’s Soap does not only donate the bars of soap but also educates people about the importance of good hygiene. By educating children on benefits of developing good hand-washing habits, the company hopes to lower the incidence of preventable diseases such as pneumonia and cholera.

The company has partnered with organizations such as Global Handwashing Day and Children of the Nations to spread awareness of the benefits of hand washing.
