That innocent bystander on your sink—the hand soap—now is getting its due. Several brands are introducing beautiful varieties that now are on par with shower gels in their look and feel, and certainly in their ingredients. Since hands get extremely dry with repeated washings, hand soaps by nature tout “moisturizing” benefits like a Superbowl commercial. Here are some we love:

L’Occitane Verbena Cleansing Hand Wash ($20)

CRUELTY FREE AND VEGAN, THE BEAUTY OF HALAL

Posted by 12.14.12

Beauty companies are becoming savvier and savvier about the products we want to use and how it affects the world around us. Going “Green” has become de rigueur, where products are organic, natural, and cruelty-free. Now, comes another label to look out for: halal (“permissible” in Arabic) products. According to Organic Monitor, halal beauty products, designed originally for Muslim consumers, now compose almost 20% of the global beauty market.
