Maintaining a healthy body is not just about what you eat and drink; the products you use on your skin are just as important. We’ll look at six different natural bar soap brands to add to your skincare routine.

It’s easy to be overwhelmed with the amount of choice that exists in the world of skincare. Many companies try to hide their chemical ingredients by using difficult-to-understand language on their ingredients list. That’s why we’re highlighting brands that care about the ingredients they use, the people that use them, and their impacts on the planet.

Natural bar soaps are a great way to clean and care for your skin while also reducing packaging waste. Unlike shower gels, many soap bars come in plastic-free packaging and they tend to last longer too.

Did you know you can also make your own soap? 3 Soap Recipes: How to Make Homemade Soap

O Naturals

Varieties | 20+
Price | starting from $14.99 USD
Size | 3 x 4 oz. or 6 x 4 oz.
Made | California, USA

These natural bar soaps are produced using the French triple-milled technique to provide a consistent color, shape and texture. O Naturals soap is paraben-, sulfate-, and cruelty-free and although they’re not palm-oil free, they do use sustainably harvested palm oil in their soaps. The biggest downside is that they only come in multi-packs, and you’ll have to buy a six pack in order to try out their different scents.

Utopia’s Pick: Their Natural Soap Collection consists of 6 diverse scents that will cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize, energize and soothe your skin. Share with friends if six bars are too much, or if you don’t like certain scents.

Where to Buy: add them to your cart on Amazon** or buy directly from the O Naturals website.
