The Best Natural Soaps for Bath and Body

bath soap

We have now learned about a number of harmful ingredients to watch out for in toothpaste, hand soap, shampoo, and household cleaning products, as well as some amazing natural product alternatives. Parabens, pthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, dyes, and artificial fragrances are just a few the worst and most common offenders in these products. And unfortunately, many of the same ingredients are used in the very items we trust to cleanse our bodies – bath and body soaps.

Although there is a long list of health-compromising substances to avoid, the easiest way to ensure your personal care items are safe and healthy is to favor trusted brands that produce only all-natural products. The product recommendations below are safe and natural, as well as vegan, cruelty-free, and made using sustainable production practices. So check them out, and enjoy a worry-free bath or shower!

Product Recommendations

1. Dr. Bronner’s makes their popular Pure Castile Soap in a handful of scents, in both liquid and bar forms. All of the company’s versatile, eco-friendly soaps are certified organic and fair trade. They are also completely biodegradable and vegetable-based, with rockstar cleansing ingredients like extra virgin coconut, jojoba, and hemp oils, and pure essential oils.

Try the Peppermint scent (bar or liquid) for a refreshing pick-me-up; the Almond scent (bar or liquid) for a sweet-smelling clean; the Lavender scent (bar or liquid) for a soothing bath or shower; the Tea Tree scent (bar or liquid) for a super cleansing experience; or the Unscented Baby formula (bar or liquid) if you prefer no scent at all.

2. Tom’s of Maine makes bar soaps in several great scents and formulas. Their soaps contain only naturally-sourced, plant-derived ingredients like coconut, olive, and jojoba oils, and the company does not engage in animal testing. 100% of the energy consumed at the Tom’s of Maine factory is offset by wind energy credits through Green-e. Check out their moisturizing, deodorant, exfoliating, relaxing, and sensitive skin formulas!

3. Hugo Naturals makes bar soaps and fizzy bath bombs in several unique scents. The company’s products are gluten free, vegan, cruelty free, and free of harsh chemicals like propylene glycol, parabens, and petroleum products.

For the shower, try the bar soap in Mexican Lime & Bergamot, Spearmint, or Geranium & Indonesian Patchouli. These bars are made with all-natural vegetable glycerin and a mixture of moisturizing coconut, castor, and safflower oils.

And for the bath, check out the fizzy bath bomb in Sea Fennel & PassionflowerEucalyptus  Rosemary & Mint, or Lavender and Chamomile! The bombs are infused with moisturizing almond oil and vitamin E, as well as pure botanical extracts.

4. Plantlife makes a great line of natural aromatherapy soaps using pure essential oils and organic botanicals. All the company’s products are free of artificial fragrances, dyes, and harmful chemicals like sodium lauryl sulfate, parabens, and phthalates. The soaps are also vegan, gluten free, and never tasted on animals. Check out Plantlife’s delicious Coconut Vanilla, Sandalwood, Rosemary Tea Tree, and Patchouli scents, among others!

I have done a lot of research on natural soaps but have been very disappointed so far. I\'ve been hearing a lot about one called Monica\'s Cococastile, so I gave it a try and it seems pretty good so far; it lathers well and smells great. Only problem is that it\'s not in many stores, but they offer free shipping on their website if you order enough.

A small-batch, high end, natural soap offering sensitive skin formulations, check out Trisha\'s Bath Soap on Etsy - https://www.etsy.com/shop/TrishasBathSoap. Made since 1997 by an esthetician with multiple-chemical sensitivity and eczema, ingredients are paramount in what you put on your largest organ that absorbs everything. Skin care since 1972.

For a small-batch, quality-controlled soap that combines sustainability and manliness, check out INTREPIDSOAP. Although new to the market, there are some killer blends that you won\'t find anywhere else. And, it\'s veteran-owned. -A little pricey, but in this case its worth it.
