Taking a more detailed look at these Best men’s Vegan Body Washes

Malin and Goetz Rum Hand & Body Wash

1. Malin and Goetz Rum Hand & Body Wash


We love this hand and body wash from Malin and Goetz. The company themselves are completely cruelty-free and clearly lists when its products are vegan. One such vegan product is this rum-scented foaming cleanser. 

Amino acids and plant-sourced glycerine are used to avoid any dryness that is sometimes associated with hand and body washes. Formulated to accommodate sensitive skin, this product gently but effectively cleanses the skin and leaves it soft and hydrated.

The subtle scent is sweet and spicy, and we’ve found it works well with most of our colognes, but Malin and Goetz stock a whole range of differently scented body washes for wherever your preference leans

Jack Black All Over Wash

2. Jack Black All Over Wash


If you’re looking for a one-stop, all-in-one wash then look no further. Jack Black’s All Over Wash is formulated to be gentle enough for hair, body, and face, meaning all your shower time needs are covered by one great daily product. However, longer hairstyles may require a more specific hair care regime.

Jack Black’s focus is maintaining hydration in all areas of use. Ingredients such as Jojoba Protein and Sea Kelp help keep dryness at bay and replenishes any moisture lost through cleaning. Citrus, mint, and oakmoss are used to provide a very light and fresh scent.

Jack Black is completely cruelty-free, and most of their products are vegan, but not all. With this in mind, keep an eye out for any animal-derived ingredients in their other products.

Jason Natural Body Wash

3. Jason Natural Body Wash


Jason’s natural body wash is made with skin that is prone to irritation in mind. A combination of hydrating hemp seed oil, oatmeal, and lavender all work together to soothe itchy and stressed skin whilst helping to maintain your skin’s natural moisture.

The fragrance is a very muted combination of sweet oat and calming lavender, but there are many other fragrances available in Jason’s range of body washes, with the aloe vera option being another one of our favorites. 

Jason is a fully cruelty-free brand, however, they state that they use beeswax in some of their products. Although the body washes do not have beeswax in them and are vegan be sure to check the ingredient lists if you are unsure.

Bulldog Body Washes

4. Bulldog Body Washes


Bulldog aims to be a man’s best friend. Designed for men, their products are made to be straightforward and work well. 

Bulldogs have a range of vegan and Leaping Bunny approved cruelty-free shower gels that you can be sure are kind to the animals. They feature 100% naturally sourced fragrances, from more neutral and earthy scents to zesty and citrus fragrances (and we love them all). There are no synthetic or chemical-smelling perfumes in these shower gels.

Their whole range is vegan and cruelty-free, so be sure to check their other products

Bave Soap Bundle

5. Bave Soap Bundle


If you prefer the classic soap bar style, then Brave has some great options. With 3 different options of scent and an option to mix and match in their bundle offers, you will be sure to find one that you love. Their fragrances include rich and earthy tobacco scents, as well as more woody and citrus-leaning varieties.

Brave utilizes Himalayan pink salts to create an exfoliating soap bar, whilst oatmeal and shea butter make sure the skin’s natural moisture is not stripped away whilst being cleansed. 

Brave is 100% vegan and cruelty-free, so whilst we recommend their salt soap bare, they have much more products available for you to browse

Every Man Jack Body Bars

6. Every Man Jack Body Bars


Every Man Jack also offers a great soap bar that doubles up as a shampoo if you so choose. Another great solution for those looking for an all-in-one addition to their shower routine. 

Used on the body, they make for a very deep cleansing product that simultaneously leaves the skin feeling hydrated and smooth after use thanks to the aloe vera and shea butter in the bars. 

Every Man Jack offers mix-and-match bundles, making it easy to find your favorite scent, or allowing you to mix it up from day to day.

Mrs. Meyers Oat Blossom Daily Bar Soap

7. Mrs. Meyers Oat Blossom Daily Bar Soap


Mrs. Meyer’s daily soap is a great all-in-one body cleanser for the hands and the body. The soap itself is vegan and Leaping Bunny approved cruelty-free. 

Their fragrances are their utmost concern, describing the soaps themselves as aromatherapeutic. If a strong but natural-smelling wash is what you’re after then Mrs Meyers bar soap is the perfect choice. They are gentle enough on the hands for frequent use, and will not strip the skin of its natural moisture.

Mrs. Meyers states that all their products are all vegan and cruelty-free, however individual packaging is not so clear. Be sure to contact Mrs. Meyers if you’re unsure about any products we have not discussed.

Mrs. Meyers Lavender Body Wash

8. Mrs. Meyers Lavender Body Wash


Featuring the same great aromas of Mrs. Meyers bar soaps, this body wash makes for a great alternative if you’re not looking for bar soap styles. 

They are very similar in all ways to the bar soap, except that if you are looking for an easier and stronger lather for your shower, then this body wash is most likely more appropriate.

Herban Cowboy Sport

9. Herban Cowboy Sport


Berban Cowboy’s Sport body wash is specifically designed for the active male, who has to compete with the body odors that come with hard work. This body wash lives up to that task. 

Sport is a fully vegan, cruelty-free, and reliable product that will come in clutch when you have a short window to jump into the shower after a sweaty gym session, or if you need to stay smelling fresh for a long day of work. The scent is a natural-smelling lavender and citrus, that will leave you smelling great but in a non-intrusive, non-perfumey way.

Every Man Jack Body Wash

10. Every Man Jack Body Wash


Every Man’s Jack is a reliably good pick for a daily body wash. Designed for men, their fragrances focus on the deeper and more woody spectrum of smells that we love. Rather than smelling like perfume. Every Man Jack’s more traditionally masculine fragrances will either set you up for your day by themselves or work well with your favorite colognes.

Every Man Jack is completely cruelty-free, but some of their other products contain ingredients derived from animals, so be sure to check the specific product you are looking at.

What is vegan cruelty-free men’s body wash?

A vegan body wash is made from ingredients that are not derived from animals. Cruelty-free means that the product is not tested on animals. For example, a product may not be vegan by ingredient but is still listed as cruelty-free due to animals not being used in the testing process. This could also be the case in reverse. As a vegan, it is essential to look out for BOTH of these labels to avoid any animal cruelty involved in all aspects of the production. 

In recent years, companies have gotten better at labeling their products as vegan and cruelty-free, but it is always good to check ingredient lists in case of mislabeling, or if the product you have your eyes on is “accidentally” vegan. You can also always contact the company if you’re unsure about whether their product is vegan and cruelty-free.

Are vegan cruelty-free washes more expensive than regular washes and soaps?

Vegan and cruelty-free washes and soaps are no more expensive than their non-vegan counterparts. Of course, prices will vary from product to product, but this is no different from any other non-vegan product. 

Certainly, there are more luxury soaps and washes available, but there is no reason that you will have to pay over the odds for your vegan products if you do not want to. Often the reason for higher prices in these products is something more specific than being vegan. Both skin and animal-friendly ingredients, as well as production techniques, are just as widely available as non-vegan alternatives.

What types of ingredients are used to make vegan washes?

Vegan washes and soaps usually replace animal-derived ingredients with plant-derived replacements. Ingredients such as glycerine, oleic acid (or tallow), and atearic acid are ingredients that can be found in soaps and washes that are derived from animal sources. However, plant-derived versions of these ingredients are readily available and are likely used in your favorite body wash. 

You will find a range of choices of ingredients in various body washes. If you are looking for a naturally sourced vegan body wash you may find it easier to inspect what is in the wash yourself due to fewer ingredients being used, whilst more medical washes may feature synthetically derived extracts.

Is plant-based based body wash good?

Plant-based body washes are just as effective as any non-vegan alternative. Although traditionally animal products such as fats were needed to create effective soaps, this is no longer the case. Many personal beauty products may be “accidentally” vegan, choosing not to make vegan labeling a focus of their packaging and branding yet still providing quality without animal-derived ingredients. This speaks to the quality of vegan washing products beyond marketing. 

A body wash being marked as vegan and cruelty-free does not mean anything is missing from the product in terms of quality, it simply means it is kind to animals whilst delivering the quality you expect.

What are the best brands of vegan body washes available for men?

Some of our favorite vegan body washes come from brands such as Malin and Goetz, Jack Black, and Jason. These companies are cruelty-free, so when their products are made with vegan ingredients they are perfect for vegans.

Check out our list for a more comprehensive look into these brands as well as our other favorite men’s vegan body washes.


Vegan and cruelty-free labels on body washes (and personal beauty products in general) do not mean that they lack in quality. They simply mean that they are kind to animals in their ingredients and during their production. Any function that an animal product may have carried out in a body wash can be easily recreated through plant-derived ingredients.

We believe that any product can be used by anyone regardless of who it is marketed towards. However, sometimes finding a body wash that is designed for men and uses more traditionally masculine aromas such as earthy and woody scents can be a challenge. We believe we have narrowed down the best available men’s vegan body washes and that your search will end here.
