Organic soap is becoming very popular, as it should considering any time I look at the ingredients of my soap, almost every ingredient is some chemical that I don’t know and I am unaware of the effects it has on my body. I have pretty sensitive skin and when I was around ten-years-old, I developed pretty bad psoriasis on my hands and legs. And because I got it so late in life, I am kind of suspicious that it had something to do with the kind of soap I was using because my mom and my sisters all got it at the same time I did.
So, as I have gotten older, I have tried to be warier of the high chemical soaps and shampoos. Organic soap is the way to go. Not only that, but I try to find organic soap that is also in environmentally friendly packaging. I also like to find a good brand that lets the consumer know how their organic soap is being made and the size of their carbon footprint is when creating these products. It helps me know that I am taking care of my skin as well as my planet.
Alright, let us jump on this train and talk about some super awesome organic soap that will save your skin!
1. Daughter of The Land
Do not fret the stress of having to buy all of the shower essentials for traveling anymore! This Daughter of The Land organic soap can be used for body wash and shampoo, but since it is made with all-natural ingredients, it isn’t like those other crappy two or three-in-one soaps you can get at the store.
The organic soap is made from goat milk that is produced in a humane family farm in Ohio. The packaging is paper and can be recycled. If you would like, here is the link to the site so you can look at the ingredients to see just what makes a great organic soap bar!
2. Pink Clay Cleansing Bar
Don’t be thrown off by the world clay as pink clay is a soft clay that is perfect for maintaining silky smooth skin without stripping or drying out your skin. This soap is made with faint citrus and floral aromas. The clay itself is high in Iron Oxide and Silica known to help nourish the skin. This organic soap can help rejuvenate your skin and improve elasticity. Here is the link to the site where you can view the full list of ingredients.
3. Apothecary Rose Soap
Why should we have soap for men and women when there should be soaps that can be used by anyone? Well, this Apothecary Rose organic soap is a soap that anyone can use! The rose fragrance is actually a mix between feminine and masculine scents and can be used for face, hands, and body.
This organic soap is palm oil free and vegan. The nutrients in rose oils and extracts are actually known to assist with keeping good skin texture and maintaining a youthful complexion. The scent of the soap is very mild but the soap itself is very moisturizing. Here is the link to the site if you are interested in this product.
4. Smallflower Modern Apothecary
Have you ever heard of soap that is made out of kelp? I haven’t, but I guess that is what makes it organic soap. This soap is made out of kelp from all the way in Iceland. The kelp used is a type of seaweed in unpolluted, nutrient-rich seawater in Iceland that is supposed to help keep your skin extra moisturized.
The scent is called Seaweed, but the description says that it really smells like the crisp, clean Icelandic air with a hint of sweetness. Here is the link for their site if you are interested!
5. Etta and Billie
The creator of this organic soap put in a lot of time and research into each bar and other products they make. The big thing with these soaps is they are very food-specific. The creator mentions in the About section of her site, link here, that she was always so fascinated with the mixtures of food and creating something new. It was the concoctions she created in her kitchen that started this whole thing up.
Many of the soaps are very specific in that they offer different kinds of exfoliants and nutrients that make your skin softer and stronger. The ingredients are all-natural and it is 100% palm oil free making it safe for your skin, for the farmers, and for the planet. The packaging is recyclable so you don’t have to fret about the garbage.
6. Bathhouse Soapery and Caldarium
As with many of the other organic soaps in this article, the Bathhouse Soapery and Caldarium all have really good reviews as far as I have seen. It is also so nice to read through them and see how people are reacting to soap that is actually working for their skin.
The organic soap sold by this company also helps with body aches and pains. One of the reviews says that the longer you leave the lather on in the shower, the better it works on your skin and body aches. The reviewer said it actually gives off a pleasant tingle that helps you relax as well. Here is the link to their site.
7. The Purist
If you are in the organic soap business, you know that there are people out there searching for unscented soap and that is what The Purist Healing bar is. It does not have any chemicals within it and has no added colorant to it if your skin is sensitive to that kind of thing.
The slogan for this company is “All Natural, No Muck!” which I quite like as muck is what I would refer to all the chemicals in other soaps. This product is cruelty-free and vegan, which is super important to know when buying products such as these.
If you look through their site, link here, you will learn that they are trying to help the planet as well. They say with every soap bar sold, they would plant one tree. So, buy some soap and save the earth!
8. Rosehip Natural Soap
This organic soap is being sold on Etsy among many other organic products. The name holds the main ingredient, rosehip oil. If you are a bit more sensitive to the scent of soap, or you just do not like scented soap at all, this organic soap has a very light scent that does not overpower your senses at all. This soap is handmade is marked at a pretty decent price for organic soap.
Not only can you use this soap as a body wash, but you can also use it as a shampoo making it a great soap bar to bring on trips to make for easy storage and fast showers. Here is a link if you would like to learn more about this product.
Just another great thing about organic soap is finding out that it is made by a family-owned or small business. Supporting smaller businesses is such a crucial thing and their products are ten times better than the processed stuff in other stores because they actually care about what goes into their products.
Savon Stories is one of those smaller businesses created in England. This Calendula organic soap has a very nice citrusy scent and a touch of sweetness from the lemongrass. The soap is very soothing and soft on the skin, making it a great choice for people with very sensitive skin. Here is the link to this product if you are interested. Make sure to check out the about section on this product as it talks about the man this product was inspired by who apparently lived to be 115-years-old.
10. Dr. Squatch
Okay, yes, Dr. Squatch soap is advertised for men, but when does that really matter? This is the organic soap my partner has started using. They all do have a very masculine smell to them, but I actually like it. The great thing about Dr. Squatch is that you can buy in bundles for a pretty great price each month so that you never run out of soap.
Dr. Squatch also has organic shampoo and conditioner and toothpaste. Each one produced with natural oils and plants to create an entirely chemical-free organic soap. Plus, have you seen the commercials for this stuff? They are actually really funny and I can never bring myself to skip them whenever they pop up on Youtube.
