Most of us tend to spend a lot of time thinking about the products we put on our faces. Below the neck? Maybe not so much. But picking up any of the best organic body washes featured here is an easy way to incorporate some clean, thoughtfully made products into your body care routine, which are good for both your skin and the environment. All these body washes are certified organic by the world’s most trusted third-party organizations, like NSF, NATRUE, The Soil Association, and the USDA.
Like other organic skin care products, organic body washes are an especially good choice for people with sensitive skin, since they’re free of the synthetic additives that tend to provoke reactions (like fragrances, dyes, stabilizers, and preservatives). Nor do they contain the harsh sulfate SLS, which can exacerbate dryness or cause irritation — meaning they're also a smart choice for those with dry skin. Instead, these body washes mostly use plant-based surfactants (like cocoyl glutamate, which is derived from coconut oil) to do the cleaning work, while other natural ingredients like shea butter, glycerin, and aloe keep your skin properly nourished.
From zingy spearmint to soothing lavender to a spa-worthy splurge, take your pick from five of the best organic body washes, listed ahead.
