Help keep germs at bay with vegan hand soap and plant-based soap bars from Desert Essence. Made with a nourishing base of 100% RSPO-certified sustainably harvested palm oil, our vegan soap and hand soap bars thoroughly remove impurities and excess oil while soothing and softening the skin. Choose from a wide variety of hand soaps formulated with gentle but powerful ingredients.
Why Choose a Vegan Hand & Body Soap Bar?
A vegan soap bar is a personal care must-have to keep things squeaky clean. Desert Essence soap bars feature delicious plant-based scents without artificial fragrances and use a base of 100% RSPO-certified sustainably harvested palm oil. To pamper your skin, even more, pair your soap bar with a body scrub and cruelty-free body lotion as well.
Bar Soap vs. Liquid Soap
As opposed to liquid soap, bar soap is solid. The benefit of liquid soap is that it comes in a container, while bar soap usually has more environmentally friendly packaging (Desert Essence soap bars use 100% recycled paper) but needs a separate holder. At Desert Essence, we create hand soap and soap bars that harness botanical ingredients such as tea tree oil to cleanse and jojoba oil and coconut oil to moisturize. Both soaps will give you the result you desire: soft and clean skin! No matter which soap you use, we’ve answered all your body wash questions here.
