Ever since I learned this past November I have suddenly developed allergies to a lot of preservatives and metals found in skincare, beauty and makeup products – my life has been turned upside down. Finding a good for your skin body wash without unwanted chemicals, metals and additives isn’t as easy as you’d think…well at least good ones. I looked for body washes that won’t upset sensitive skin and are mostly vegan and green. Here are 10 of the best I have found.
Good For Your Skin Body Washes
This wash has a wonderful pomegranate sunflower scent and is free of sulfates, parabens and phthalates.
I’m a sucker for anything lemon scented and this vegan, soap-free and pH-balanced formula cleanses gently with natural essential oils so it leaves skin super soft. It contains no paraffin, silicone or mineral oils.
If citrus is your bag then this is the body wash for you! This plant based wash is comprised of pure essential oils of pink grapefruit, orange, lemon and lime. It does not contain Sulfates, Formaldehyde, Parabens, Synthetic fragrances or dyes or Petrochemicals. This wash is also cruelty free, 98% Natural, 57% Organic, 30% Aloe and is vegan.
4. OGX OGX® Coconut Miracle Oil Body Wash, $5.99

Can you tell I love coconuts? I adore LATHER products so it’s no surprise this rich, luxurious cleansing crème gently removes dirt and oil while keeping your skin super moisturized.
