Raising The Bar - The best organic bar soaps for your bathroom
The humble bar soap has made a triumphant return!
No longer comprised of drying alcohols and synthetic scents, it's fair to say the world of soap has come on leaps and bounds!
In a world where a whopping 120 billion units of packaging are produced every year by the global cosmetics industry and only 50% of packaging is recycled in the bathroom, bar soap is a clear choice for those looking to make easy switches to reduce the amount of plastic in their home.
Opting for certified organic bar soaps takes this sustainable action one step further.
Certified organic bar soaps are comprised of natural scents and colours, sustainably sourced ingredients, and come in biodegradable and recycled packaging.
Here are our top picks of certified organic, plastic-free bar soaps, naked in all their glory:
Neal's Yard Remedies, Wild Rose Soap - £6.50
Pioneering organic beauty brand Neal’s Yard Remedies have transformed their best-selling Wild Rose Balm into a nourishing and cleansing bar soap.
Gentle patchouli, rosehip, and geranium organic essential oils evoke a floral scent, transporting you to a dreamy day at the spa.
Coconut oil and shea butter softens the skin, leaving it silky smooth.
Lucy Bee, Fragrance-Free Natural Soap - £6.00
Spearheading the coconut beauty and wellness revolution is Lucy Bee, they have left no coconut shell un-turned, and now offer enriching coconut-based beauty!
The fragrance-free natural soap is made from 100% organic and fair-trade extra virgin raw coconut oil.
The bar soap is devoid of sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), palm oil, and petroleum leaving skin fresh, soft, and hydrated. Ideal for those with sensitive skin.
Happy Holistics, Scrub a Dub Handmade Natural Soap - £3.90
Handmade using the traditional process method, Happy Holistics uses shea and coconut butters and extra virgin olive oil to soften the skin.

Enchanted Plants, Cherish Positivity Therapy Soap - £6.95
Another eco-friendly bar soap is this delight from Enchanted Plants. Energising lemon thyme, rosemary and French yellow clay is used to created an uplifting and cleansing bar soap.
Based in Dorset, Enchanted Plants' handmade soap bars are aimed to encourage well-being, using natural ingredients that fall in line with the seasons. The gentle yellow clay is soothing, detoxifying and deep cleansing, and infused with magical scent for a mood-boosting body wash that will soothe and cleanse your skin.
Soap Folk, Goats Milk & Honey Soap - £5.95
Soap Folk’s Goats Milk & Honey soap is gentle, creamy, and moisturising.
Suitable for sensitive skin, the unscented bar soap uses organic honey and goat's milk for their healing and moisturising properties.
The beauty and wellbeing industry is currently unregulated, meaning that businesses can potentially use as little as 1% organic ingredients and label the product as organic.
By choosing certified organic beauty and well-being products, you're casting a vote for a health and beauty movement you can trust - one that's championing a safer climate, protecting wildlife, and showing that more sustainable ways of manufacturing and packaging are possible!
