Dr. Woods is, first, last and always, a story of family and enduring relationships.
First conceived by Van Woods, son of Sylvia Woods, founder of the famed Sylvia’s Restaurant in New York City, and long-time friend and business partner, Gary Greenhouse, Dr. Woods is rooted in a lifetime commitment to family, community and doing what’s right.
Starting with our Black Soap, a unique natural cleanser, Dr. Woods’ vision was to produce high quality skin care products sourced worldwide but made right here in the United States. Products made by a small company that personally cares about what we offer to our customers. Natural products that are of the highest quality at a price nearly anyone can afford. Products that we use every day in our own family, and are proud to share with yours.
In short, we are committed to creating products that truly are “All Things Good.”
Today, our product family, like our own family, has grown like the leaves and branches of the tree we use to symbolize our promise to our family and yours. A promise to provide safe, natural, cruelty-free products that are good for you and the environment. A promise to use ingredients that support the families of small farmers and producers around the world. A promise to make natural products that just plain work, at a price your family can afford.
A promise to share only those products with your family that we know are good for our family, too. Products that we love and use every day – on our kids, and our own skin, hair, and homes.
Welcome to the family.
