Our Top Five Bar Soaps For Sustainable Bathing
Soap bars are probably the most sustainable way to cleanse your hair, face, and body. Most bars have very little packaging, and therefore you aren’t stuck with any excess materials or plastic after you’ve finished the product! We have discovered some incredible soap bar brands that we wanted to share.
Thank you to all the brands who made this article possible!
Tautanz Rosemary Body Scrub
“My go-to brand for most bar soaps is Tautanz. The brand was born out of the desire for eco-friendly goods with a modern and elegant aesthetic. The brand only uses the best ingredients, and you’ll never find any plastic around their products. Their packaging is made of biodegradable materials, and they even deliver in an eco-friendly way! Tautanz’s Rosemary Body Scrub has been my favourite for years. I’ve actually gone through multiple bars now. The smell alone is divine, and the scrub is perfect for even sensitive skin types like mine. I have had to always be careful with scrubs because my skin is often allergic to certain ingredients. Even though the scrub is gentle, it still works wonders on the skin. It truly leaves the skin refreshed and softer than ever, thanks to the the natural clay granule that mildly remove dead skin cells, impurities, and excess oils. Rosemary essential oil has such a variety of benefits – including helping with excess oil production so this is the perfect bar if you struggle with any body acne!”

Superzero Shea Butter Shampoo Bar
Believe it or not, Superzero’s full size shampoo bars are the equivalent of 2 to 3 bottles of liquid shampoo! Ditch your plastic bottles and grab a shampoo bar – better for the planet and your wallet. The Avocado Oil + Shea Butter shampoo bar is incredible for dry and damaged hair. Their formular counteracts dryness, damage, and even helps protect any color treatment you may have with revitalizing nourishment. Their science backed blend lathers just as well as any other shampoo and helps lock in moisture. It is super long-lasting so you won’t run out as quickly as you would with a regular bottle of shampoo!
Kari Gran Luxe Facial Cleansing Bar
One of these bars by Kari Gran equals one 114ml bottle of liquid cleanser – more than you ever get when you buy a conventional facial cleanser. This facial cleansing bar is incredibly gentle on the skin and will never strip the skin of its natural oils – making it perfect for any skin type. This bar has colloidal oats, which instantly soothe red and irritated skin – great for dry and acne prone skin! The avocado and castor oils in this cleanser nourish, hydrate, and balance the skin, while goat milk feeds the skin essential fatty acids, vitamin A and triglycerides. One of our favourite cleansers!
Ursa Major Morning Mojo Bar Soap
The most used beauty product is hands down body soap. Cut down on your plastic usage and switch to a bar soap. The Ursa Major Morning Mojo Bar Soap is one of our go-to’s because it cleanses, hydrates, and stimulates the mind at the same time. The peppermint in this soap not only wakes up the mind but also wakes up the skin! Honey, coconut, shea butter, and sea fennel work together to soothe, hydrate, and gently cleanse the skin while the volcanic rock offers light exfoliation.
Fat and The Moon Conditioner Bar
This organic and concentrated conditioner bar is low waste but high impact! This one bar equals an entire bottle of conditioner – minus the plastic and excess packaging. It is a very potent conditioner that has local Californian coast harvested seaweed and cocoa butter, which leaves hair incredibly silky and hydrated. For those looking to tame frizzy hair – this is the perfect conditioner for you. This product also works as a leave-in conditioner for those who really need some deep hydration. Our Content Manager, Taylor, brings this product to the beach with her to hydrate and protect against harsh sun exposure and the salty sea.
