8 Non-Toxic Hand Soaps

Wash your hands with our top picks

Washing your hands is the most important thing you can do to protect yourself from any viruses and other sicknesses that are going around. It's also an important way to remove toxic chemicals like flame retardants that might be on your hands so that you don't accidentally ingest them when you snack or eat a meal. We would take washing hands with ANY soap over not washing your hands, but it might be nice to have some non-toxic hand soaps at home since you use them multiple times a day. Hands soaps can have harmful and unnecessary preservatives or unnecessary ingredients like synthetic fragrances or other things that irritate your skin. We also love bar soaps, but it's nice to have liquid hand soaps around, especially if you have kids. We researched and read reviews of a whole bunch of non-toxic hand soaps so that you can be sure that you are getting your hands clean without any unnecessary chemicals. They come in a variety of amazing smells or you can go fragrance free too! Pick some up today!

Also, just a quick reminder that proper hand washing involves getting into every nook and cranny of your hands, including between your fingers and around your thumbs! It should take at least 20 seconds if you're doing it right.
