10 Best Organic Body Washes to Purify and Nourish Skin

We've handpicked pH-balanced formulas that come with anti-aging benefits too.

Organic Body WashSearching for the best natural and organic skin care is a mission we all pride ourselves on, but what about the skin on the rest of our body? There’s nothing wrong with showering daily, especially if you sweat or have oily skin. But the products we use on our body and even tap water can dry out our skin, leaving it weakened and lackluster. By choosing an organic body wash, you can ensure that it gently purifies your skin, while also helping to revitalize it for the long run.

How to choose an organic body wash

Like with natural and organic skin care, choosing the best organic body wash isn’t as simple as selecting one that’s been certified organic. It’s easy to select a formula that’s free of the worst offending ingredients, such as sulfates, parabens, phthalates, and synthetic fragrances. But it’s still important to pay attention to individual ingredients on a product label. Did you know that even plant-based ingredients such as cocamidopropyl betaine can cause skin irritation? We’ve carefully screened the products below to ensure you a comfortable shower experience (with a few extra bonuses too from anti-aging and skin-balancing ingredients).
