Review: Whole Foods Verve Bar Soap

When I was younger, my family used regular drugstore soap. We usually purchased bars for "sensitive skin," which were often unscented to avoid irritation. When I made the switch to cruelty-free products, I was shocked by some of the sticker prices on bars of soap at the health food store; many were fancy artisan soaps. What's a girl to do if she wants something like regular soap, only cruelty-free? Enter Whole Foods' Verve soap.

  • Very affordable
  • Retail availability (Whole Foods)
  • Gentle ingredients
  • Unscented and scented options
  • Easy to use up (see below)
  • Non-drying
  • Hard to find outside Whole Foods
I was delighted to find this soap at Whole Foods. Instead of paying $5 a bar for other natural soaps, they offer this in-house line for $3.99 for a three pack, and a little more per bar if buying individually. The unscented bar doesn't smell like much, but there are some scented varieties as well that seem based on popular conventional scents like cucumber. The ingredients for the unscented bar come in at a shockingly low 0 on the EWG Skin Deep database. I suspect the fragrance varieties are higher, depending on the fragrance used. One of the best things about this soap is, when you get down to a small bar, you can easily incorporate it into a new one (it melds together when wet). This is very handy, so you don't end up with tiny soap pieces cluttering up your bath or shower. I love the hip packaging and impression on the soap. If you're looking for a dependable soap that is gentle and performs as well as the conventional alternatives, Whole Foods' Verve is a great, affordable option.
