12 Best Organic Hand Soap + Safe, Non Toxic & Eco Friendly

12 Best Organic Hand Soap + Safe, Non Toxic & Eco Friendly

A curated list with the best organic hand soap, featuring the top-rated, safe, non-toxic, eco-friendly and organic certified hand soaps with plant based ingredients — plus affordable options.

Interestingly enough, searches for “eco products” and “eco friendly products” are on the rise, according to Google Trends. More specifically, searches within the personal care and cleaning space — as it relates to eco friendly or environmentally friendly products — is categorized as a ‘rising’ trend. Overall, we’re happy to see this level of awareness increasing around what you purchase. For this collection, we narrowed in on finding the best organic hand soap. If you didn’t already know, conventional hand soaps — by many of the popular American brands — contain a cocktail of toxic and ‘harsh’ chemicals that are banned in other parts of the world. As a country, the United States is unfortunately somewhat behind in the conscious consumer space. In curating for the best organic hand soap, we focused on selecting liquid hand soaps without toxic chemicals (e.g., sulfates, phthalates, and phosphates), that consist primarily of plant-based ingredients and are certified cruelty free, and those that involve some degree of sustainability, either through ingredient use or product packaging. You’ll find products from top reviewed brands such as, Puracy, Avalon Organics, and Dr. Bronner’s. If you like our curation job, leave a star review below.
