Bar Soaps For A Conscious Clean

Make bath time a better ritual with these natural, organic, and vegan soap bars!

These bars use responsibly sourced and naturally occurring ingredients—like organic oils and plant extracts—for the deepest clean. Plus, most come without plastic packaging for a low waste clean. Use them to wash your hands, or in the bath and shower. Scrub-a-dub-dub! 🛀

For a fully zero waste lather, pair your soap bar with a plastic-free shampoo bar.
