The Boys and Girls Club of the Capital Area provides a safe structured positive environment for more than 4,000 children of all ages every year. As a locally produced all natural soap company, RAD SOAP CO. shares the organization’s values of committing to excellence, health and community.
“This partnership means a lot to me,” says RAD founder Sue Kerber. “For a relatively low cost, our customers can make a meaningful difference to the lives of our most vulnerable community members, while enjoying a great all-natural soap.”
"I couldn't be happier to announce this partnership with RAD," says Justin Reuter, Executive Director of Boys and Girls Club of the Capital Area. "This will help feed our boys and girls, and remind customers what an important organization this is for our community with every scrub."
The RAD SOAP CO. has redefined the bath industry with handmade all natural hemp-infused soap products that are chemical and plastic free and environmentally sustainable. Each bar of soap lasts an average of 30 showers and saves untold waste from plastic body wash bottles. They are made with natural ingredients you could eat and never contain paragons, sulfates, phthalates, harsh chemicals or GMO’s. RAD SOAP is headquartered at a 15,000-square-foot building in the Albany suburb of Menands, where 12 employees make, package and ship between 10,000 and 20,000 bars of soap a month.
The RAD SOAP CO. is a labor of love founded by Sue Kerber in 2009. Sue started her business in her kitchen while searching for a natural remedy to treat her son’s eczema. Her passion for blending natural ingredients to create holistic skin care products has led her to incorporate the finest hemp extracts into RAD’s products to promote wellness for customers.
