Thank you for visiting the Ortner Brand Website! My name is Jenn Myers and I am the owner/operator of Ortner Brand Soap Company.
Ortner Brand began after a lengthy hunt for products that were cruelty-free, natural and vegetarian-friendly, but finding that sourcing these products was sometimes challenging. These product hunts usually resulted in me returning home with extremely expensive bars of soap or other products that I was not always happy with.
As someone who loves creating and learning how things work, Eric Ortner (my husband), decided that there must be a way to make our own soap. Soon he got to work on figuring out how to make soap and even made his own soap mold. After much trial and (sometimes hilarious) error, he created a recipe that produced an amazing bar of soap. This soap inspired the beginning of a multitude of products such as body lotion, face cream, lip balm, rescue balm, beard products and laundry soap. We created these natural products for ourselves and now want to share them with you!
Ortner Brand products are natural, cruelty-free (we only test on humans!), vegetarian or vegan friendly and are created in small batches to ensure quality. Ortner Brand began in beautiful British Columbia and is now based in scenic Nova Scotia.
