Natural Body Wash: 9 Organic Scrubs For A Cleaner Planet & Person

Hailey Carrillo


At the end of a long day, there’s nothing better than a nice, hot shower.

That is…until you realize what’s in many conventional body washes…

Sodium laureth sulfate, ammonium chloride, cocamide MEA, fragrance, aphanizomenon flos-aquae extract, PPG-9, Blue 1, propylene glycol, methylchloroisothiazolinone…

Wait a second, are we taking a shower or a chemistry class?

We don’t know about you but we’d rather not let our skin soak up these sci-fi synthetics.

But is there a natural body wash that won’t wash our skin’s natural biome down the drain?

Grab your eco-friendly loofah, brush up on your knowledge of our beauty criteria, and let’s get scrubbin’!

Everything we recommend to you on Sustainable Jungle is independently researched and we ask all brands to confirm their claims. To avoid waste, we test products on an as needed basis.

The Best Non-Toxic Body Wash Brands Scrubbing Up The Soap Industry

With no synthetic fragrances and a low carbon footprint, it’s plain to see that Plaine Products natural body wash is one of the best natural body washes you’ll find.

Though, we are also rooting for EcoRootsmoisturizing organic body wash for women and men made from coconut oil and other skin loving essential oils.

We can’t forget Brixy’s organic vegan body wash bars, which are also cruelty and fragrance-free, making them suitable for the most sensitive skin.

Ok time for that deep cleanse, so keep scrolling to see what other organic body wash brands have us singing in the shower.

1. Plaine Products

Plaine Products’ Organic Lavender Body Wash

Price Range: $30–$35

Is natural body wash better for you?

Given the harsh chemicals in most body washes, Plaine Products organic moisturizing body wash is one we’d say yes to.

After all, it does contain biodegradable ingredients that have been carefully chosen to avoid anything that’s deemed toxic or unsafe by the Environmental Working Group. 

Naturally deeming sulfates, parabens, and artificial fragrances as duds (er, suds) in their formulas.

Instead, their gentle formula relies on coconut derived surfactants and natural extracts.

Available in Rosemary, Mint, + Vanilla and Citrus Lavender, the organic body wash is 100% vegan, cruelty-free, palm oil-free, and safe for babies (no tears). 

Best of all, their sustainable packaging comes courtesy of a recyclable and reusable aluminum tube.

And we do say yes to these body wash refills every time we step into the shower. It’s one of our favorites because we love the fast-foaming convenience of the liquid and the fact that it isn’t literally watered down with water and other synthetic fillers.

About Plaine Products

Plaine Products lays down the problem in plain English: plastic is destroying our planet.

That’s why they make plastic-free personal care products that use eco-friendly, natural, and chemical-free ingredients only (like natural shampoo and conditioner).

The Certified B Corp is transparent not only about their ingredients, but also about their sustainability efforts.

Which, in part, inspires their active participation in 1% for the Planet. They have donated over $530 million to numerous environmental partners around the globe.


2. EcoRoots

*Note: Most products offered by EcoRoots are palm oil free.

EcoRoots’ Organic Sensitive Skin Body Wash

Price Range: $13

EcoRoots’ certified organic body wash bars contain no parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, dyes, or hard-to-pronounce ingredients to avoid in skincare.

Just 100% plant-based, vegan, and mostly certified organic ingredients like organic coconut, sunflower, and safflower oils and herbal extracts.

For example, our personal favorite, the Peppermint Soap, features both peppermint oil and menthol. Two key ingredients for a potent peppermint bath (which we find is perfect for alleviating headaches in a steamy post-work shower).

Plus, the inclusion of wheat and barely grasses adds a texture that turn this creamy body wash into an exfoliating body cleanser, too.

Each bar is cold-pressed by hand in small batches in the USA, and, like their shaving soap bars, come totally plastic free.

Since one bar can replace two whole bottles of liquid body wash, the affordable non-toxic body wash bars will gently cleanse without irritating sensitive skin (or sensitive finances!).

About EcoRoots

As one of our favorite zero waste online stores, EcoRoots offer a comprehensive collection of plastic free bath, beauty, hair, and home essentials.

All of which are cruelty-free, non-toxic, and largely organic, palm oil free and vegan (save for some third-party brand partners that use beeswax).

Everything is housed in compostable paper or reusable glass jars, and also shipped in eco-friendly packaging.

Profits from their natural body wash goes toward their 1% for the Planet membership to support Ocean Conservancy and other planet-focused NGOs.

**Note: Some Blueland products use RSPO palm oil derivatives.

Blueland’s Clean & Non-Toxic Body Wash

Price Range: $12–$15

What is the best natural thing to wash your body with?

Blueland’s natural body wash is never a bad idea.

Their waterless powdered formula is packed with plant-based, hydrating ingredients that have been dermologically tested for a hypoallergenic, skin irritation free clean.

Vitamin E, Oat, Kaolin Clay, and Coconut Amino Acids, being a few of their key ingredients.

Available in Waterdew Lily, Coconut Milk, and Sandalwood Sage, the non-toxic body washes will leave our planet feeling good, and your skin smelling good.

Simply mix the powder with 18 oz of water to make one full bottle of the creamy formula, which we can say from experience lathers super well and washes off without leaving any residue or greasy film on our skin.

When it runs out, we love that we can just order a refill in a compostable paper envelope and add it to our lifetime bottle.

The sustainable suds have Cradle to Cradle, Leaping Bunny, and MADE SAFE certification.

About Blueland

A reputable supplier of refillable cleaning products, this zero waste brand has a clean record.

Believing “a cleaner planet starts at home”, Blueland has planet-friendly powders for just about everything, including hand soap.

The products have collectively diverted over 1 billion single-use plastics from landfills. 

As well as a ton of carbon from the atmosphere, considering the Certified B Corp is also proudly certified Carbon Neutral (shipping included).


4. Brixy

Brixy’s All-Natural Body Wash For Sensitive Skin

Price Range: $6

Kiss (and cleanse) synthetic fragrance and irritated skin goodbye once and for all, with Brixy’s natural body wash for women, men, and kids.

Designed for both hand and body use, their organic vegan body wash bars nourish and deeply moisturize all skin types—including sensitive skin.

The cruelty-free cleanse is courtesy of an omnipotent, hydrating base of coconut oil and shea butter.

Plus a few natural oils that help the natural body wash smell amazing (like Citrus, Coconut Vanilla, or Mint Eucalyptus.)

We love the sounds of the coconut vanilla body wash and love even more that all their long-lasting bars make for some of the most affordable non-toxic body wash around.

About Brixy

From working in an NIH-funded lab to creating a company solving problems created by endocrine disrupting chemicals, the founder of Brixy knows a thing or two about the hazards of conventional skin care chemicals. 

Which is why he decided to dedicate his life to creating non-toxic remedies, like shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. 

Focused on more than just plastic-free products themselves, the brand is proactive about educating consumers, media, retailers, and other product companies about these harmful chemicals.

Social responsibility is the core of the business, with donations supporting organizations like the Environmental Working Group, Breast Cancer Fund, and the American Red Cross.


5. Ethique

Image by Sustainable Jungle

Ethique’s Men’s & Women’s Organic Body Wash

Price Range: $6–$13

We’ve already talked about how Ethique can sustainably take care of our zero waste shampoo needs, but what about suds for our delicate skin?

Thankfully, they know how to preserve a skin barrier with some of the best natural body wash bars.

Lime & Ginger. Sweet Orange & Vanilla. Matcha, Lime & Lemongrass. Lavender & Peppermint. Any refreshing scent is sure to please.

If you can’t decide on just one (who could blame you) try their sample box to avoid getting stuck with a scent you’re not in love with for a long time.

We’re all for an exfoliating body cleanser, which is why this Spearmint Pumice Bar is our favorite.

If you can’t get behind the bars, their Gentle Bodywash Concentrate works just as well.

Fully made with natural and organic ingredients, both natural body washes are good enough to eat (err, drink?)

We wouldn’t recommend it though, even if they are cruelty-free and vegan and made with sustainably-sourced, biodegradable, naturally-derived, and palm oil free ingredients. 

About Ethique

Ethique is one of those non-toxic body wash brands with ethics.

The living wage employers prioritizes direct trade

Bars are their pièce de résistance and, because of them, they’ve prevented more than 9 million plastic bottles from being manufactured. 

They’re definitely one of our favorite plastic-free Certified B Corps, especially because they’re a climate neutral company that donates 2% of their profits to charity and plants a tree for every order made online.

Plus, their range of eco-friendly bathroom products is so vast, you can make yours a whole Ethique emporium!

Meow Meow Tweet’s Natural Ingredient Body Wash

Price Range: $12–$20

If you’re on the hunt for organic body wash brands that put the planet first, you’re in for a real treat with Meow Meow Tweet.

The eccentric natural skincare brand offers both soap bars and liquid body wash crafted from plant-based ingredients like olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter, and natural oils from seeds and leaves.

These ultra-hydrating and protective ingredients put either form among the best natural body wash for dry skin.

All of which follow the Multipurpose Manifesto, meaning they are gentle enough to use as facial soap and non-toxic baby wash as well.

This aromatherapy All-Over Soap takes it even a step further, with ingredients designed to cleanse both the body and the mind.

Their standard bar soaps are available in three scents: Grapefruit Mint, Coconut Cacao, and Lavender Lemon.

If we had to use one word to describe them, it’d be just purrfect.

About Meow Meow Tweet

Meow Meow Tweet’s natural products are our clean, conscious catnip.

They’ve got everything from the palms to the pits covered, with eco-friendly hand soap and zero waste deodorant alike. 

All which are crafted with vegan and cruelty-free ingredients that support renewable farming practices and women-owned distributors. 

And, give back to small, mutual-aid, BIPOC and queer-led grassroots.

About By Robin Creations’ Women’s & Men’s Non-Toxic Body Wash

Price Range: $15–$41

When it comes to natural moisturizing body washes, you can’t go wrong with handcrafted, artisan bar soap from By Robin Creations.

Scented with natural essential oils and topped with dried fruit, leaves, and flowers, they make beautiful consumable gifts for your sensitive skin eco-loved ones. 

The gentle formula is made of shea butter, olive oil, mango butter, avocado oil, rice bran oil, and a few other things (notably mica.)

If you’re looking to avoid mica, their vegan shower clean gel is equally as impressive, and also comes with double the scent options. 

Both options offer eczema versions that contain neem oil, which provides extreme moisture at the cost of smelling “a bit stinky”, even the fragrance free version.

About By Robin Creations

The Etsy-star seller boasts over 16,000 sales and thousands of 5-star reviews.

What started as homemade vegan lip balm and deodorant recipes quickly transformed into a full-blown product line for hair and skin care.

Every order receives a handwritten note and one or more full or trial sized objects.

*Note: Many of 100% Pure body washes contain honey.

100% Pure’s Natural Shower Gel

Price Range: $12–$25

100% Pure continually impresses us with their range of sustainable makeup and skincare products.

They’ve got a zillion (okay, 13) different options of some of the best non-toxic body wash in the form of shower gel and bar soap. Here’s a scrub down:

The Blood Orange Shower Gel is natural, vegan, cruelty-free, and made in the USA. It’s sulfate-free and is perfect as a natural moisturizing body wash. 

If you’re not vegan, there’s the French Lavender Shower Gel, which captures all the emollient, humectant, and soothing benefits of honey to prevent wrinkle formation and regulate skin pH.

For soft, supple skin, there’s a vegan-friendly Mango Butter Bar Soap, which includes ingredients like avocado butter, rosehip seed oil, and heavenly scented mango extract. 

Your order of all-natural organic body wash will come shipped in recyclable materials with compostable packing peanuts that are made out of cornstarch. The packaging, however, is a little less than clean.

The shower gels come in plastic tubes and bottles, which we encourage you to recycle when finished (or just go with the zero waste bars).

About 100% Pure

100% Pure is the body care baby of three founders who strive to create healthy products that embody their desire to live with kindness, compassion, and empathy.

They do this through the use of ethically sourced natural ingredients that are cruelty free.

In fact, kindness toward animals is a pillar of 100% Pure, which is why they donate a bowl of eco-friendly dog food to a dog shelter for every purchase.

Or, if you prefer tackling carbon footprints to paw prints, one tree to a community in need.

Conscious Skincare’s Best Natural Body Wash For Men

Price Range: $18–$21

True to their name, Conscious Skincare makes some of the best organic body wash for sensitive skin in the business.

Starting with their organic men’s body wash, an award-winning blend of Castile soap, jojoba oil, and bergamot, cinnamon, and frankincense essential oils. “Men’s scents” that lathering ladies are sure to enjoy, too.

And vice versa, with the women’s natural body wash scented in sweet orange, grapefruit, or amyris, these “ladies scents” are some that anyone can get behind.

The universally beloved choice is their organic unscented body wash.

All-natural body washes from CS start with organic and natural Castile soap, which is combined with organic glycerin (for ultra soft skin) and a variety of nourishing plant and herb oils.

They’re all cruelty-free and vegan, and come in glass bottles, with an optional plastic pump top.

We tested out the Absolute Shower, a multifunctional cleanser for hair, face, and body. It’s a game-changer, offering convenience without compromising on quality.

Notably, the eco-friendly packaging and refill options align perfectly with a sustainable lifestyle. This range is a must-try for anyone seeking effective, eco-conscious skincare solutions.

About Conscious Skincare

UK-based Conscious Skincare was founded by Rebecca, a sufferer of chronic dry skin who couldn’t find help in conventional products.

So, she created her own range of award-winning organic skincare products (like body wash, organic face cream, and eco-friendly shampoo).

All are free from palm oil, parabens, phthalates, and SLS.

Conscious not only about skincare, most products from the award-winning brand come in sustainable packaging, and many are available for refills.

How We Chose The Best Organic Body Wash

Is organic body wash good?

Not always. In a world of greenwashing and false claims, it can be hard to decide which natural body washes are actually as they say.

While it’s not foolproof, we refer to our sustainable beauty criteria to weed out options that have slippery business practices and find only the best natural body wash.

  • Non-Toxic: Given that this article is about the best non-toxic body wash, we were strictest with this category. No harsh chemicals or ingredients to avoid in skincare like formaldehyde, paraben, or synthetic fragrances.
  • Vegan and cruelty-free: No animal testing whatsoever, and only animal byproducts like honey and beeswax (though we prefer brands that at least have vegan options).
  • Palm Oil Free: Used commonly for its moisturizing properties, we haven’t quite found a way to do palm oil better yet. 
  • Ethically sourced ingredients: Clean ingredients are one thing, clean sourcing is another. A body wash that washes away all concerns for basic human rights is not one we want to be using.
  • Thoughtful Packaging: We aren’t the only ones that need a good clean. Mother Nature is struggling with pollution so we want non-toxic body wash that’s non-toxic for nature, too. Compostable and refillable packaging is ideal, followed by recycable.

This is a long (zero waste) laundry list, but it is our bodies we’re talking about. They deserve the best.

While not all organic body washes are able to meet every single one of these criteria, we’re happy to see that many are able to meet most of them—and for this article, the use of natural ingredients was our principal focus. 


Final Thoughts On Natural & Non-Toxic Body Wash

Our skin is a vital organ. It stands between us and the rest of the world, it keeps us hydrated, wards away microbes, and, well, holds us all together.

Why would we jeopardize it by washing it in a bath of toxic chemicals?

Personally, those toxic body wash options don’t leave us with a clean conscience.

And fortunately it’s no (sensitive) skin off our backs thanks to these best sustainable body washes that are doing their bit to protect us and the planet.

Now, if you know anyone who also needs to improve their shower singing performances with the most natural body wash, feel free to share this guide and let’s support these brands together.

  1. Your section on Dr. Bronner’s has a bullet point saying “Palm oil free.” But in the text, it says there are “Fair trade organic coconut, palm, and olive oils…”

    Which is it?

    Reply
    • Hi Ken, good thing to clarify! I assume you mean the big text with the colourful boxes next to them? If so, the little red box means that this brand is NOT palm oil free as explained in the text. For more on what these colourful boxes mean, have a look at this article and this list which explains in more detail.

  2. Excellent article. I am now embarking on the journey of waste-free body care and sharing most of these brands with my family.
