We Had a Vision:
To Elevate the Bar of Soap

ORRIS was founded in Paris by Kenneth Koo and Lani Le Berre. We had a vision to elevate a simple bar of soap into a luxurious and sensorial cleansing experience. Made with the highest quality plant derived ingredients, our products are designed to appeal to the senses: sight, smell, and touch.

Unable to find existing products on the market that were at once effective, enjoyable to use, and gentle enough for sensitive skin, Kenneth began making bar soaps for himself and friends. He began experimenting with powerful botanical ingredients inspired by rich histories of holistic practices, such as herbalism, Ayurveda, and Japanese cleansing rituals.

ORRIS was born out of a long friendship and our combined passion for skincare, French savoir-faire and visual storytelling.
