4 Reasons Why Natural Soap Is Better Than Conventional Soap

We know there are a lot of misconceptions about natural products, including their efficacy, their price point, and authenticity. From our OG natural deodorant to our new vegan bar soap made with organic ingredients, we continue to develop new products because we believe that clean options are the best choice for keeping your family—and the planet—healthy and happy.

Here are a few myths we can help bust:

"Natural bar soap isn’t as effective."

Humble Brands’ natural bar soap is just as effective as conventional bar soap without the harsh and unnecessary ingredients that can irritate the skin. The plant-based oils and butters in our formula are gentle and nourishing, perfect for even the most sensitive skin. Our cold-process bars work into a rich lather of tiny bubbles, subtly scented with essential oils and botanical extracts, to wash away the day and leave you feeling fresh and your skin moisturized. See what our customers have to say.

"Natural bar soap isn’t worth the price tag."

Many conventional (and often lower cost) body products are made with inferior quality ingredients that are cheap for the manufacturer but not so great for you. Humble Brands’ natural bar soap was formulated with thorough research, thoughtful ingredient sourcing, human testing, and plenty of love.

When it comes to caring for your largest organ, we believe gentle plant-based ingredients are best. A gradual cold-process soap-making method ensures the natural ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter, and olive oil are better preserved. The result is a more nourishing, skin-compatible soap. Plus, our hand-poured cleansing bars come in recycled and recyclable packaging.

"Just because it’s called 'natural' doesn’t mean it’s actually safe."

It’s important to be critical of the products you put on your body. That’s why Humble Brands bar soap is crafted traditionally using only organic, plant-based whole oils. And they're subtly scented with pure essential oils and botanical extracts, making them gentle enough for sensitive skin and safe for the entire family.

“Eating healthy and drinking water is enough for great skin.”

A healthy diet and hydration are essential for healthy skin and bodies, but it helps to add clean products to your daily skincare routine. From fingers to toes, cleansing your skin with a natural bar soap defends against harmful bacteria while gently nourishing and protecting the epidermis.

We realize that not all natural products are created equal. So, we work extra hard at Humble Brands HQ to ensure our products meet the highest standards—such high standards that we use them ourselves and with our families.
