Non-Toxic Soaps

Nubian’s Goat’s Milk & Chai Soap with Rose Extracts took first place for our favorite non-toxic soap out of hundreds displayed at Whole Foods and online. The amount of ingredients, type of ingredients, and fragrance were all factors in our selection.

The soaps all had to be free of parabens, sulfates, preservatives, pthalates, artificial colors, artificial fragrance, and animal ingredients. Believe it or not it took some time to find soaps that fit this criteria – liquid soap being the largest culprit of hidden harmful ingredients in seemingly “natural” brands. See below for our top 3 choices. All are available at the mentioned websites in addition to amazon.com and Whole Foods.

Nubian Heritage Goat’s Milk & Chai Soap with Rose Extracts: This is the best soap we have found, with a light sweet creamy rose scent and best of all, a rich lather that you typically get with toxic laden conventional soap. The rose water acts as a mild astringent and the essential fatty acids in the goat’s milk help to regulate skin pH, condition and soften. Specks of chai and rose petals provide a light exfoliation. The simple list of ingredients below are without harmful toxins or parabens.

Ingredients: 100% vegetable oils: palm oil and /or coconut oil, vegetable glycerin, organic shea butter, goat’s milk powder, rose petals, rose extract, honey, camellia sinensis (chai) leaf extract, rose water, mineral pigment or vegetable color, natural fragrance and/or essential oil.

Grandpa’s Unscented Baking Soda Soap: This is an unscented variety with only five ingredients. We love the simplicity of it but unscented is not for everyone so we put it second behind the delightful Rose and Chai scented soap above.

Ingredients: Coconut oil, palm oil, purified water, vegetable glycerin, baking soda.

Seed Power Body Care Grape Seed Enriched Moisturizing Body Soap – Simply Unscented: This soap features the antioxidant power of grape seed extract and a slightly longer ingredient list, albeit all natural and non-toxic of course. This unscented version does have a slightly sour soapy odor, so it comes in third.

Ingredients: Sodium Palmate, Sodium Cocoate, Water, Glycerin, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil (Grape), Kaolin, Sodium Citrate, Vitis Vinifera (Grape Seed) Extract (Grape), Punica Granatum Seed Powder (Pomegranate), Prunus Armeniaca Seed Powder (Apricot), Fragaria Vesca (Strawberry) Fruit Seed (Strawberry).
