What’s the first thing that comes to mind at the mention of bar soap? Let us guess: a sterile, shriveled white brick. But those are the bar soaps of the past. With the wide range of skin care brands on the market and a growing interest in cleaner, more sustainable options, bar soap is growing in popularity again.
While both bar soap and body wash work about the same when cleansing your skin, bar soaps eliminate the need for plastic packaging and typically last longer than your average bottle of body wash. Once you see these 14 options below, you might be making the transition to bar soap for good.
