One of things people say about clean beauty is that it’s too expensive. For the most part, they’re right, it’s for sure more expensive than the drug store version. But, there’s a reason: Clean, non-toxic brands have to spend way more on their ingredients. They also use less fillers. Plus, they’re made by much smaller companies so they can’t produce in mass quantities like the bigger brands.
I equate it to Whole Foods verse Taco Bell. Yes, it’s more expensive, but it’s worth it because it doesn’t leave you feeling like sh*t. I think one of the reasons why toxic-filled beauty has gotten away with being bad for you for so long, is that you don’t feel it right away. You don’t get a stomach ache 10 minutes after applying it, like you do with junk food. Just a theory.
I definitely think making the switch is worth the investment for our health, just like eating organic food is – soooooo I put together a list of my favorite clean products that happen to be under $20.
