Getting clean is part of most of our days– be it showering, taking a bath, washing our face, and (especially now) our hands. But which soap & body wash formula is the safest based on the use of hormone-disrupting ingredients? You’ve trusted Mamavation to bring you topics like best & worst lotions, best & worst shampoos, & best & worst facial moisturizers, now join us as we bring you the best and worst soaps from liquid body soaps to bar body soaps.

The Natural History Of Soap
Like many personal care things we can “no longer live without” – such as makeup, or toilet paper, or deodorant in our society today, a number of factors combined have shaped the emergence and history of bathing in the US.
Many Americans, before the mid-nineteenth century, believed that bathing was not good for you – as it “removed” the layer of protective dirt and oil while exposing the body to dirty water (and miasmas – this sort of diseased air was actually what had been thought to cause illness before germ theory of disease was established and after the good doctor died.)
While people in America did wash their clothes, they saw bathing as part of stereotypical European excess, moral softness, luxury, and physical laziness. Lather didn’t happen to your body.
Finally, the Civil War began to change attitudes about bathing – and Americans began understanding that pathogenic microbes caused illness, not dirty air, and by the 1880s, American doctors began to promote body cleanliness as one of the best, most important ways to stop diseases.
Unfortunately, not all of us had access to clean water until improvements in technology and plumbing allowed many cities to offer clean water and hygienic, safer sewer systems to their population. A great number of wealthy and middle-class people began to install bathtubs with running water into their own homes, while the poor, living in tenements didn’t have the same luxury. To help with this problem, New York City built free public bathhouses for those unable to access clean water at home.
Suddenly, having good personal hygiene began to be a part of being a good American and by 1891, manufacturers of soap like Palmolive, Colgate, Proctor & Gamble, Palmolive, Bristol-Meyers, and Johnson & Johnson (brands which we should all recognize today) worked around the clock to ensure that there was enough soap to go around. Advertisements for soap encouraged soap as a means to wash away ignorance, poverty, criminal behaviors, and general immortality.
After the early 1920s, bathing had – and continues to be – a major part of our hygiene ritual. American soap companies, even then, were facing extreme competition from each other and from newly created lines of cosmetics soaps being introduced onto the market. Vegan, cruelty-free, natural ingredients, organic ingredients, extracts, fair trade, and gluten-free attributes battle for your money to fight body odor.
Even today, the fierce competition for the hygiene market plays out as we watch. Proper hygiene has become so centralized into our way of life that one in four houses in the US built in 2005 (or later) have three or more bathrooms.
Unfortunately, there is such a thing as too much soap – we’re now seeing people who are allergic to the contents of regular soap, boutique soap, and the soap we use to wash our clothes.
So a new market was born…
The Emergence of the Homemade Soap Industry Brought Cleaner Ingredients
People with sensitive skin, and other skin types, or just people fed up with the crap we know is in our daily lives have spoken out in a big way: instead of getting mad, they’re getting even.
Handmade soap is a niche segment that’s working over the overall global soap industry, which is valued at $18 billion, with a surge to $24 billion expected by the year 2022.
With a lot of people making their own rules, hours, and working as their own boss, soap-making has become an industrious way for many people to make a little recession-proof money for their households. Why? It’s not expensive to start the process by comparison to other types of start-up business costs, handmade soap sells at a firm retail price, and is, like we said, a recession-proof industry.
As consumers we’re returning to buying bar soap for a lot of reasons: first and foremost because many of the liquid brands have allergens and/or people may face sensitivities to the fragrances and other ingredients.
Another reason is that a lot of us are beginning to distrust the cosmetics/personal care industry and the large conglomerates and would like a shot at helping out a small business. People enjoy buying homemade products, whether it be in a boutique, online, door-to-door, it’s expected that over the next ten or so years that handmade soap may dominate the global soap market. There you’ll find ingredients like aloe vera, jojoba oils, argan oil, high-quality essential oils, and many other ingredients for your beauty routine.
Ingredients Inside Soap & Body Wash That Are Problematic to Human Health
If you scan this list and think, hey, I feel like I’ve seen these a zillion times in different personal care product posts, don’t fret, you’re not losing your memory, they’re just all over the place and equally bad for your wherever they pop up. Let’s check them out again, for old time’s sake.
Fragrance ingredients can include chemicals linked to endocrine disruption, cancer and cell function, and without having full disclosure by the manufacturers and suppliers, we can’t make informed decisions. Avoid buying soaps with “fragrance,” fragrance/parfum,” “natural fragrance,” or “organic fragrance,” because they actually tell you nothing.
Some of the fragrances we’ve come across when we look at personal care products sound more pleasant than they actually are, so we tend to want to avoid these synthetic fragrances especially if you have sensitive skin or autoimmune disease:
- Citral is a naturally occurring scent ingredient, but created synthetically on a large scale, and is associated with allergies and contact dermatitis.
- Limonene is a scent ingredient and solvent that naturally occurs in the rind of citrus fruit. However, when exposed to air and sunlight after being stored, it degrades into a number of oxidation products that may act as skin and respiratory system irritants and sensitizers.
- Linalool is a terpene (a large class of organic things that create smells to ward off their enemies, including bugs, leaves, and notably conifers) that is used as a fragrance ingredient and masking agent.
- Hydroxycitronellal is a common scent ingredient that’s produced synthetically from naturally-occurring scent chemical citronellal.
- Eugenol is a naturally occurring scent chemical found in clove oil; also manufactured synthetically. Has been associated with allergies and contact dermatitis.
- Geraniol is a naturally occurring scent ingredient found in various essential oils such as rose oil and citronella oil.
Synthetic Fragrance Additives
“Fragrance” is likely to contain dozens of additional chemicals other than just one fragrance. Our favorite brands have full transparency with fragrance ingredients and their additives. But here are some synthetic fragrance additives we would like you to avoid:
- Benzophenone (also known as) benzophenone-1 (BP-1) and oxybenzone (BP-3)
- (BHA) Butylated Hydroxyanisole:
- (BHT) Butylated hydroxytoluene
- Benzyl Salicylate
- Benzyl Benzoate
- Butylphenyl methylpropional (also known as Lilial, its brand name)
- Chloromethane (methyl chloride)
- Dichloromethane (methylene chloride)
- Diethyl phthalate (DEP)
- Essential Oil Mixtures
- Eugenyl methyl ether (Methyleugenol)
- Formaldehyde or formaldehyde-releasing ingredients like quaternium-15, DMDM hydantoin, imidazolidinyl urea, diazolidinyl urea, or polyoxymethylene urea.
- Oxybenzone (BP-3)
- Synthetic Musks (Tonalide , Galaxolide, Musk Ketone, Musk Xylene)
- Vinyl acetate
Preservatives may be used in cosmetics to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria and mold – and have gotten safer over time. But that does not mean that companies don’t sneak in some old enemies: parabens and formaldehyde-releasing preservatives.
These cancer-causing ingredients are still alive and kicking in many personal care products.. Parabens and formaldehyde-releasing preservatives are commonly used preservatives in cosmetic and personal care products.
Parabens are preservatives that prevent the growth of bacteria, mold, and yeast in cosmetic products; associated with increased risks for breast cancer.
- Also known as: ingredients ending with –paraben, like ethylparaben, butylparaben, isobutylparaben, isopropylparaben, methylparaben, propylparaben, isobutylparaben, isopropylparaben, other ingredients ending in –paraben.
Benzylate: benzoic acid, and benzyl esters
Methylisothiazolinone (MIT): (2-methyl-4-isothiazoline-3-one, Neolone 950 preservative, MI, OriStar MIT and Microcare MT) are a widely-used preservative; has been associated with allergic reactions and neurotoxic effects in animals.
Methylchloroisothiazolinone (CMIT): (5-Chloro-2-methyl-4-isothiazolin-3-one and MCI) is a widely-used preservative; has been associated with allergic reactions.
Triclosan (TSC) and triclocarban (TCC) are antimicrobial chemicals that are a known endocrine disruptor — most especially thyroid and reproductive hormones, and a skin irritant.
Many of these are known or suspected to cause cancer, organ system toxicity, bioaccumulation, and are found in all kinds of personal care products, especially soaps.
- DEA, TEA, MEA
- Cocamide DEA
- Cocamide MEA
- DEA-cetyl phosphate
- DEA oleth-3 phosphate
- Lauramide DEA
- Linoleamide MEA
- Myristamide DEA
- Oleamide DEA
- Stearamide MEA
- TEA-lauryl sulfate
Ethoxylated ingredients are generally of low concern on their own. However, they can be contaminated with ethylene oxide, a known carcinogen, and 1,4- dioxane, reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen. They may also be linked to organ toxicity and reproduction toxicity.
- -eths (steareth, laureth, ceteareth, and ceteth in the name)
- Ethylene oxide
- 1,4 Dioxane
Formaldehyde and formaldehyde-releasing preservatives are used in a shocking number of personal care products, especially in shampoos and liquid baby soaps. These chemicals help prevent microbes from growing in water-based products, and can be absorbed through the skin. They have been linked to many things – from cancer to allergic skin reactions.
Formaldehyde is also known as Formalin, Formic Aldehyde, Merthaldehyde, Methanal, Methyl Aldehyde, Oxomethane, and Oxymethylen.
Formaldehyde Releasing Compounds: While often used interchangeably, formaldehyde-releasing compounds vary in that they are often preservatives that are slowly released over time.
- DMDM Hydantoin Imidazolidinyl Urea,
- Diazolidinyl Urea,
- Polyoxymethylene Urea,
- Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate,
- Bromopol, and
Surfactants work by breaking down the dirt on your skin by tackling the dirt and oil into a suspension, allowing the dirt and oil to rinse away.
- Cocamidopropyl Betaine is a synthetic surfactant found in a number of personal hygiene products including hand soaps. Health concerns around cocamidopropyl betaine include allergic skin reaction, contact dermatitis, and environmental toxicity
- Sodium lauryl sulfate SLS/Sodium Laureth sulfate or SLES: known to be skin, lung, and eye irritants. A major concern SLS is its potential to interact and combine with other chemicals to form nitrosamines, a carcinogen. It’s also suspected to be contaminated with 1,4-dioxane.
- Retinyl Palmitate: A skin conditioning agent, Retinyl Palmitate is listed as a developmental toxicant by California’s Proposition 65 program. It may increase skin cancer risk. Also Known As: Retinol Palmate, Retinol, Hexadecanoate, Vitamin A Palmitate.
- Tocopheryl Acetate: A skin conditioning agent, Tocopheryl Acetate may be contaminated with hydroquinone, which is linked to cancer and organ-system toxicity. Also known as: Vitamin E Acetate, DL- Alpha-Tocopheryl Acetate
- Propylene glycol is small organic alcohol commonly used as a skin-conditioning agent. It’s classified as a skin irritant and penetrator. It’s also known as methyl ethyl glycol
It is best to choose soaps with no color added as the fewer chemicals in a skincare product the better.
- To name a few: Blue 1, Red 33, Yellow 5, and Titanium Dioxide
However, when it comes to other personal care products like makeup, we find that artificial colors is okay because natural minerals are so contaminated with heavy metals you come out ahead.
