So, if you’re looking for something super simple for your sensitive hands, something on a budget or maybe your hands deserve a real treat with a luxury hand wash. We’ve got it all!

The Best Cruelty-free and Vegan Hand Washes in 2024:

The Body Shop

The Body Shop are one of my favourite brands, not only because they sell quality products at prices I like but also because of their ethics. They’ve pledged to become fully vegan – but fear not because as of today there are still so many vegan products in their ranges. 

Here’s one of my favourites vegan hand washes from The Body Shop:

Boost Exfoliating Hand Wash

Ticking all the boxes – vegan, cruelty-free, natural and gluten-free, this hand wash is sure to be a winner for most of us. It’s a hydrating hand wash, meaning it’s perfect for those who want to look after their hardworking hands.

Marcel’s Green Soap

Marcel's Green Soap Sandalwood & Cardamom Hand Soap - vegan and cruelty-free hand soap

This soap looks simple and has a price tag that would imply the same, but this is actually a pretty great hand wash. It is a herbal soap filled with natural ingredients and is at least 97% biodegradable. And vegan, of course.

Urtekram Organic Soothing Lavender Hand Soap - vegan hand wash

This organic hand wash is made using essential oils and lavender botanical extracts and is 100% natural. It’s a great option as the colder weather comes in and dries out our hands.

P.F. Candle Co.

Yes, they may sound like they are all about candles, but if you can make beautiful-smelling candles maybe you can do the same with soap, and in this case, they did.

P.F. Candle Co. offer four different vegan and cruelty-free hand washes 

Teakwood & Tobacco, Amber & Moss, Golden Hour, Swell – Take a look at P.F Candles’ selection of vegan hand washes.

They come in on the more luxurious side when it comes to hand soap but it’s undoubtedly a treat washing your hands with this stuff.
