It all started with a bar of soap. And a goat.
Way back in 1994, two friends from Montreal decided the world would be a whole lot softer if more people washed with soap made from fresh goat's milk.
Thus began Canus and in just a few short years, their original triple-milled bar grew into the second largest selling soap in all of Canada.
Pretty soon Canus was making fresh goat's milk body wash, fresh goat's milk moisturizer, fresh goat's milk body butter and foot scrub. The entire line was made with farm fresh goat’s milk. It is still the same today.
All in all, there are now more than 70 Canus Goat's Milk and Li’l Goat's Milk products. Plus our newest Nature by Canus facial wellness line.
After establishing American headquarters in Vermont, she quickly built up Canus' U.S. distribution.
Today the charming Canus goat illustration smiles back at customers from the shelves of major mass retail and drug store chains, supermarkets and specialty stores throughout the lower 48. Of course, none of this could have happened without the thousands of dedicated, hard-working goats and the family farms that take such good care of them and deliver their milk to Canus.
Ultimately, the Company's success will be defined not only by how much product we sell but also by how we make it and by how many people's lives get better along the way.
This means continuously improving our sustainability practices and sourcing natural, responsibly grown and harvested botanical ingredients whenever possible.
It also means giving back, and supporting employees who want to make a difference in their local communities. We're very big on volunteerism and fund-raising. That’s why we launched our Canus for a Cure campaign to help patients cope with cancer.
There are many more chapters yet to be written and we plan on making each one as fun, interesting and full of promise (and goats) as the first ones.
