Vegan Soap Bars that Make the Kindest Bubbles

The Best Vegan Soap Bars in the UK

In a time when making any changes possible to live a more sustainable life is a great thing to do a pretty easy one is to move to vegan soap bars. 

When buying vegan bar soap there’s often very little waste, sometimes even none at all! When it comes to packaging, they’re great when you compare them to the bottles that most shower gels come in. And if taken care of soap bars can last a long time too. 

These days it’s quite easy to find beautifully smelling vegan soap bars made of natural ingredients. On my list, you’re sure to find the perfect one that will make shower time feel like a relaxing treat.

To the best of my knowledge and at the time of writing, every item in the post is fully vegan and cruelty-free. The only way I like it! I hope you find the best vegan bar soap for you!

5. Mango Butter Soap – 100% Pure

I just love mango, eating mango, drinking mango and smelling mango. So, the scent alone makes this soap a winner for me, but that’s not all it’s going for it. Because it’s made using rich shea butter, fatty acid-rich coconut oil and silky smooth olive oil it’s a cruelty-free bar soap that will leave your skin feeling clean and divinely soft.

6. Friendly Soap Natural Activated Charcoal Detox Bar – Friendly Soap

Friendly Soap Natural Activated Charcoal Detox Bar

This vegan and cruelty-free soap bar from Friendly Soap is a little different. It‘s made using activated charcoal and absorbs toxins from your skin, leaving it cleaner and healthier. It’s infused with lemon essential oils to add antioxidant qualities and rosemary essential oils for relaxation.

7. UpCircle Cleansing Bar with Cinnamon + Ginger

This is different to the other vegan soap bars I’ve mentioned before because it is also an exfoliator. It uses repurposed chai spices such as cinnamon and ginger and these help to boost circulation. It’s also made with green clay to combat breakouts and glycerin to hydrate.

8. Zero Waste Path Oatmeal Soap Bar – Shop Zero

A zero-waste oatmeal vegan and cruelty-free soap, sounds pretty good cool, right? Well, I think so. It’s also a very gentle exfoliator that’s perfect for delicate and sensitive skin. Oatmeal is an anti-inflammatory so it soothes existing irritations and it can also help to boost and replenish the nutrients that your skin needs.
