Briochin, a long story of soap.
Our story began in 1919 with Raoul Renaud, a wax merchant, travelling the Breton roads in his van.
He manufactured and sold high-quality soaps and cleaning products for professionals under the brand name Le Briochin.
This hundred-year-old know-how is reflected in our range of products, from traditional solutions for your home (black soap, bicarbonate of soda, etc.) to authentic natural treatments for your well-being (traditional body care).
The artisan of
care products since 1919
Our founder was a wax merchant named Raoul Renaud. Our products were originally popular with printers, mechanics, painters and craftsmen, who found the kind of quality in them that all professionals look for. Later, by word of mouth, the reputation of Briochin’s products went beyond French borders.
Raoul Renaud named me « Briochin » after the inhabitants of Saint Brieuc in the Côtes d’Armor region in France, where Briochin was born. 1919 saw the first of a long tradition of top-quality soaps and household cleaning products.
de 1950 à 1980
A few visionary entrepreneurs had an original idea: what if Jacques Briochin could help all men and women to do their housework simply and with a smile? To make this possible, the products had to be sold in big supermarkets. And this is now the case!
