It needs to be said: Natural beauty products aren't accessible to everyone, because many of them are wildly expensive. It's hard not to wonder why these plant-based ingredients that come from the earth are taxed at a much higher price than those full of strong chemicals and harsh ingredients. Further, what even makes a product certified to be "organic" or "natural"? Unfortunately, more often than not, irresponsible brands slap a label on something to sell their products at a higher price.
Thankfully, more brands are prioritizing thoughtfully curated products full of healthy, natural ingredients that aren't expensive. I'm not saying you shouldn't splurge on your beauty products by any means, but rather, if you care about your ingredients, you shouldn't have to sacrifice your entire paycheck. The good news? More and more under-the-radar and indie beauty brands are making their way in the beauty space with natural products that are sold at a fraction of the average cost.
Here are the best natural, affordable beauty products that are worth buying in bulk.
