My Favorite Vegan Liquid Hand Soaps

April 3, 2011By 5 Comments

Before I delve into my list of fave vegan liquid hand soaps, lemme give you some quickie reasons why I prefer using liquid soaps vs. solid bars for my sweet, delicate phalangey fingercicles.

  • I is laaaaaay-zaaaay. I don’t wanna waste my time lathering up a bar of soap before washing my hands. I want instantaneous sudsification. Na mean?
  • It’s less messy and doesn’t get that slimy layer of nastiness if it’s sitting around like soap bars do.
  • The liquid soap scent tends to linger longer. Me gusta.
  • I’ve convinced myself that pumping the liquid soap bottle burns 0.764 of a calorie. Those bits can definitely add up and whip you into bikini shape in no time!

Just in case y’all are like, “Damn, why’s this girl hatin’ on soap bars?”… Lemme just say, I ♥ using bar soaps when I bathe and shave my legs. There’s enough love to go around, my babies! Onto my fave liquid soaps:

  1. Hugo Naturals – Vanilla & Sweet Orange ($7.99), perfect spring scent, smells like a heavenly, citrusy, creamcicle treat
  2. Nature’s Gate Organics – Lemongrass & Clary Sage ($6.99), thick formula, a little goes a long way, smells clean and would make a lovely addition to any kitchen.
  3. EO – French Lavender ($8.99), soothing, beautiful floral scent
  4. Dr. Bronner’s – Peppermint Castile Soap ($6.39 for 8 oz. bottle), versatile, lasts a long time, tingly, and straight-up awesome
  5. Trader Joe’s – Lavender and Chamomile Soap ($2.99) ← Can’t beat that price! It’s easy to dispense and has a subtle, relaxing, delicate scent.
  6. Lather – Cucumber Wasabi Hand Wash ($12), a li’l pricey but it’ll mos def get you in the mood for sushi (the vegan kind, fools!) 😉
  7. Method – Refresh Mint Foaming Hand Wash ($3.99), affordable, available at places like Target, smells refreshing, and has a fun foam factor.

There you have it! When there are all these awesome vegan liquid hand soaps to choose from, there’s NO excuse to not wash your hands, ev-ah! And as a public service announcement, please—pretty please—always wash your hands after going pee pee, #2 and/or #3. Thank you y muchos gracias. xx

    Now out of these soaps, which one leaves your hands feeling the softest afterwards? I habitual yeah my hands having 8 pets, cooking at home & being an avid nail biter ;0} I desperately need a hand soap that restores my hands and heals them instead of just constantly stripping all of the oil off and leaving them constantly cracked but as the masses of creature & environment loving hoards, REFUSE to use any non-cruelty free products. This includes not using any non-animal tested products that are still under a company that’s tests for other products in their line. Any suggestions?

    Dr. Bronner’s is a wonderful soap. Peppermint is a great scent that my boyfriend and I can both enjoy. Great post!

    I’ll go on record to say that I don’t like bar soap. I use Dr. Bronner’s as hand soap in my bathrooms (I also have a bottle for washing my hands at work and carry a tiny one in my purse for washing my hands out and about, too) and as body wash in the shower. I love Dr. Bronner’s!
