After finishing up my natural beauty series with Tata Harper, I got lots of wonderful feedback — thank you! It’s gratifying to learn how many of you are interested in natural/non-toxic beauty, and hear about what changes you have made to your routine to eliminate potentially harsh chemicals and toxins. One excellent reader request I received (hi, Julie!) was to compile a list of other great natural beauty brands that were budget friendly. Understandable — I absolutely know swapping out conventional products for natural ones gets expensive. So today, I thought I’d round up a list of other great brands you can check out with prices that are a bit lower.
One caveat here though: I do have to tell you that when it comes to natural, non-toxic and (often) organic beauty products like this, it’s rare to find dirt cheap prices. It’s just a function of the ingredients used — kind of like in food, how organic fruits and veggies usually cost more than conventional, so to is it true with cosmetics. It’s just much cheaper to use man-made chemicals in things than it is to use something like pure, organic argan oil. So for a few of these options, some of their items might not be budget friendly, but they’re at least budget friendlier, especially compared with some of the other luxury beauty brands. With that in mind, along with each brand, I’ve included the price ranges for their cleansers, moisturizers, and specialty products like serums, so you can get a sense for where they lie on the price spectrum. I’ve also included recs for products I’ve tried and loved, and/or products that I think sound wonderful and suspect would be a great place to start! Check it out: Read more »
