Claus Porto a brand with great historical provenance, was founded in 1887 by two entrepreneurial Germans: Ferdinand Claus and George PH Schweder.
Adopting Portugal as their new home, Claus and George settled in the seaside city of Oporto and began manufacturing soaps and perfumes of the highest quality. The first national factory of its kind, Claus Porto soaps soon became a popular part of the grooming regime of the elite and upper classes of Portugal, even attracting the attention of the King of Portugal D Manuel II who visited the factory in 1908.
Following the advent of WW1, the company closed in 1914 and resumed production in 1918 under the management of former employee Ach Brito who re-established the brand under his own name.
Ambitious, Ach Brito's passion and innovation secured the Claus Porto's future as the leading manufacturer of fine soaps throughout Europe. Winning many awards and accolades throughout their industrious history; Claus Porto is now owned by the great grandchildren of Ach Brito.
