Now, more and more natural beauty brands are debuting bar soaps made with equally desirable ingredients, like goat’s milk and avocado oil that are gentle enough to use on your whole body, your pretty face included.
And who doesn’t want a reason to simplify their skin-care routine and clear out bottled-cleanser clutter when it turns out you’re saving a tiny last squirt from, like, five of your faves?
Here are seven good-for-you bar soaps you should be washing with right now. Just don’t forget to invest in a cute little soap tray for your sink. —Jamie McKillop
Great for sensitive or mature skin, Soapwalla’s Cardamom Ginger Soap Bar features fresh ginger and spicy green cardamom for a super fresh, detoxifying feel. But because the cult-fave Brooklyn brand (also known for its natural deodorant) handmakes it with gentle plant oils and shea butter, the bar brilliantly cleanses without drying you out. Hooray!
This affordable option (available at stores like Duane Reade and Target) is great for acne-prone skin because it contains calming, balancing activated charcoal. And it feels super fresh all over. The bar is huge and lasts ages. Just don’t be alarmed when jet black suds fill your tub. Maybe give your significant other a heads up?

This clinical-meets-natural brand is all about balancing pH and leaving out unnecessary ingredients like fragrance to save you from irritation (and toxins). The facial Pekee Bar is super moisturizing thanks to high-quality, unrefined marula oil and honey.
