Amid bacterial contamination scares and ingredient lists you can't pronounce, many of us are on the hunt for all natural hand soap that does more than clean our hands. That's especially true if we want our new favorite to help cut down on plastic waste and shipping weight, too.
Luckily, there are plenty of great options at Walmart. The supermarket giant has everything from concentrated refills that you 'activate' at home to bar soaps that last longer and use less packaging and less oil than liquid soap. Plus, there are lots of natural options that kill pathogenic microorganisms naturally (without contributing to antibiotic resistance) and help your hands stay soft and hydrated.
The most important thing to keep in mind when buying a hand soap is that the ingredients should be simple and safe. That means no artificial anything, including dyes and fragrances, as well as no sulfates, parabens or GMOs. And look for soaps that are sustainably and organically sourced, preferably directly from fair trade partners.
One brand to look for is Soapbox, which just launched a line of all-natural hand soaps at Walmart stores and online. These are formulated with a moisture-locking formula that includes vitamin-rich hero ingredients and a base of shea and aloe. Soapbox's Moisturizing Hand Soaps are available in four gender-neutral scents, including Lemon Citrus, Vanilla Coconut and Eucalyptus Mint.
