Best Natural Organic Body Washes For Your Skin
Sometimes soap just doesn't cut it. You don't simply need to get clean.
You want something that washes away the stress of the day. And leaves your skin feeling hydrated and silky smooth.
Dealing with dirt is only part of the problem. When you're in the bath and reach for the bottle of your best all natural body wash, you want to be sure to nourish your skin.
Not look at a litany of ingredients that strip it of its natural oils. Certain body washes and soaps leave a residue on the skin.
Or they simply contain too many additives and unnecessary chemicals that are only present to make bubbles bigger. After all, who asked for all these artificial fragrances or synthetic dyes, anyhow?
If you want to keep it clean, keep your eyes peeled for natural ingredients. Like coconut, olive, himalayan pink sea salt, green tea, and avocado oils, as well as organic aloe leaf juice and shea butter.
Certified organic plant-based organic body washes clean skin without stripping away natural oils. And this is what makes it superior to conventional body wash.
You may be searching for something specific such as natural organic options, or a vegan natural body wash that's cruelty-free.
While each body wash described below may not be able to check off every requirement on your list, we have compiled quite an impressive collection of best natural body washes that will wow you.
We understand that you want to love what you use to lather up. We do too. That's why we selected some of the best natural body washes on the market today.
This list will have a best all natural body wash with skin benefits for just about everyone. Whether you're dealing with dry skin or excess oil.
So without further ado, here they are in no particular order. (Though truth be told, we are rather partial to the first option listed here...)

1. Best Natural Body Wash - JUARA's Candlenut Hydrating Shower Gel
When it comes to the complete package of a natural body wash that will nourish your skin, boost your beauty, and offer a spa-like experience as you lather up, look no further than JUARA'S Candlenut Hydrating Shower Gel. We believe it's the best natural body wash available.
Lather up the natural ingredients in this organic body wash with peace of mind
The formula is free of phthalates, sulfates, and parabens and is also cruelty-free. Those who have tried it rave about its tropical aroma and say it makes them feel more luxurious than any organic body wash or bar of soap out there.
While we may be biased, we know what the entire body needs. We're basing our recommendation - and have built our formula - off of centuries of experience.
All our skincare recipes reflect the richness and warmth of Jamu, the Indonesian cultural and beauty tradition.
Organic coconut oil takes center stage in this natural body wash
The Jamu lifestyle is all about wellness, community, and love, with a healthy dose of self-care and permission to indulge. Candlenut Hydrating Body Wash is a lush way to lather up, with nourishing natural ingredients like candlenut oil and coconut oil.
Candlenut oil contains omega 3 and 6 fatty acids that penetrate the skin easily and moisturize deeply. They keep water where it should be and decrease trans epidermal water loss (TEWL).
They make up part of the matrix that supports your skin cells and strengthens the skin barrier.
Protect your skin from pollutants and embrace these plant-powered ingredients
The vitamin E in Candlenut is a potent antioxidant that protects against free radicals, which is a critical component of skincare. And can help whether your goal is reducing breakouts or fighting early signs of aging.
It does all that and is still super gentle on the skin. The other hydrating and healing ingredient of the Candlenut Hydrating Body Wash is coconut.
Coconut is a staple in many Jamu recipes. Whether you're consuming sweet strips of it or covering your body with the oil, it's crazy good for you.
Rich and healthy fats make this organic body wash one you'll never want to run out of
Like candlenut oil, coconut oil is rich in vitamins and healthy fats, so this body wash is doubling down on those antioxidant duties. It's also one of the most moisturizing ingredients and keeps skin smooth.
If you want to hear more about how very cool the coconut is, watch this video:
When choosing a natural body wash, perhaps what's equally important as the science behind the individual ingredients is how the product stimulates the senses and makes your body feel.
Coconut cleansers and jojoba oils welcome all skin types in this natural soap
We've already mentioned the wonderful scent and how the Candlenut Hydrating Body Wash will leave your skin velvety soft, so the last step might just be to try it out yourself.
After any bath or shower, be sure to moisturize with a hydrating oil or cream like JUARA's Candlenut Body Cream to make for a well-rounded and radiant skin care ritual. It has all the benefits of candlenut oil mentioned above.
And absorbs quickly into the skin because of the amino acids in the avocado oil and jojoba oil in the formula. Amazing, right?
Don't forget to keep the moisture going after you organic body washes
And don't forget to hydrate those hands that work so hard for you throughout the day. The Coconut Illipe Hand & Nail Balm boasts shea butter, which can help heal any minor scrapes you might have.
Illipe and shea butter are both moisturizing and have antioxidants to keep your hands looking young.
The next time bath time comes around you might have a whole lot more to smile about. Be sure to shower yourself with love and choose a body wash that’s worthy.
2. Dr. Bronner's Castile soap

This natural organic body wash is perfect for acne-prone skin that hasn't responded well to your run-of-the-mill bar soap.
Get rid of clogged pores with this green and white tea combo

Because this organic body wash is antibacterial it's able to unclog pores filled with dirt and detritus. Since acne blemishes can easily become inflamed, this is where the anti-inflammatory effects of tea tree oil factor in.
Sensitive skin can enjoy this organic body wash and natural fragrance

This moisturizing body wash will leave sensitive skin soft and supple
In the shower you can get a good lather going on your skin, or draw a bath and pour a small amount into the warm running water.
