When you're new to the vegan lifestyle, it can be challenging to find cruelty-free products to replace everything in your home—even body wash. But don't worry! If you live near a Target, there are tons of options for vegan body wash at your fingertips.
Read on to see them all...
1. Dr. Bronner's
There's no better place to start than Dr. Bronner's when you're talking vegan body wash. This miracle stuff can serve as your body wash, face wash and shampoo. Though all of the scents are mild, the Baby Unscented Pure-Castile Liquid Soap is fragrance-free and gentle enough for kids and adults with sensitive skin. In addition to being easy to find in Target's personal care aisles, Dr. Bronner's is 100% vegan, animal testing-free, dye-free and natural.
2. Mrs. Meyers
You might know Mrs. Meyers cleaning products, but lesser known are the brand's body washes. Some of your favorite dish soap scents like Basil and Honeysuckle are made in body wash form. A leader in animal-friendly products, Mrs. Meyers is affiliated with the Leaping Bunny Program whose mission is to end animal testing. Rest assured that your body wash from Mrs. Meyers not only smells like fresh herbs and flowers, it's part of an internationally-recognized cruelty-free lifestyle.
3. Éclair Naturals
Actress and diagnosed celiac Jennifer Esposito is the face of new vegan and gluten-free brand Éclair Naturals. The company makes everything from deodorant to sea salt scrub (which you can also pick up at Target) in botanical, fruity and herbal scents. Test out the Shea Butter & Oatmeal Shower Gel for a luxurious and moisturizing experience.
4. Avalon Organics

Nearly all of Avalon Organics goods are plant-based (some lip balms contain beeswax, which is not vegan), including the brand's body washes. We appreciate that they cut out lots of chemical preservatives, parabens and phthalates. If you're a fan of good old standards like lavender, Avalon Organics makes a Nourishing Lavender Bath & Shower Gel you might want to try.
Method is another recognizable name in home cleaners as well as personal care items for ladies and gents. The men's Cedar + Cypress Body Wash is vegan and cruelty-free with a crisp, woodsy smell. All of the Method body washes, from the Deep Detox to the invigorating Energy Boost varieties, are made without parabens and phthalates.
6. The Seaweed Bath Co.
The Seaweed Bath Co. is a Leaping Bunny brand thoroughly adored by both vegan and non-vegan Target shoppers. Reviewers say they feel like they're at the spa when they use the Eucalyptus & Peppermint Body Wash. You might get hooked.
7. Shea Moisture
Not every Shea Moisture product is vegan, but the Raw Shea Chamomile & Argan Oil baby shampoo and soap combo is. The company stays away from skin-aggravating chemicals, relying on natural oils, aloe and plant extracts to create its soothing formula. If it's good for baby, it's good for parents, too, so it's actually usable by anyone in the household who needs a nonirritating soap.
8. Alba Botanica
Alba Botanica asserts that no animals are used or tested on in the manufacturing of its products (there are beeswax and honey ingredients in a few of its non-body wash items, however). The Very Emollient Bath and Shower Gels are hypoallergenic, ditching harsh additives and synthetic perfumes to deliver softer, kinder body washes for those who don't like too much fragrance. There's a scent for just about everyone, including Coconut Rescue for tropical fans and garden-fresh Sparkling Mint.
