Budget-Friendly Body Care: Bath and Body Products Under $15
A few years ago when I first started buying non-toxic makeup and skincare, I experienced some major sticker shock. I was on a mission to find a new face wash. I was used to paying about $10-$15 and set out to find an option that was not only non-toxic but also had great reviews. I remember reading a bunch of blogger recommendations, looking through tons of ingredient lists and finally finding an option that sounded perfect….that was until I saw the price. Since I wanted something plant-based, I was willing to spend a little more than my previous face washes, however, $40 was a little too rich for my budget (especially for something that wasn’t actually going to spend a lot of time on my face). I kept searching until I found an option that fit all my criteria and have since discovered tons of brands that are truly clean and effective.
When curating bath and body products for The Bath Well, we have 3 main criteria:
- Is the product free of any harsh chemicals or harmful ingredients?
- Is the product effective (meaning, does it smell good & feel good on the skin)?
- Is it reasonably priced?
While #3 means something different to everyone, our goal was to offer a range of options with many being under $15. Price is an issue I often hear as a deterrent for people switching over from conventional to non-toxic body care. While it’s true that sourcing plant-based ingredients are pricier than their synthetic counterparts, there are many non-toxic body care options that won’t break the bank. Read through for our picks for non-toxic body care under $15.
Price: $6.69- $7.69
Griffin Remedy body washes are incredibly affordable and filled with hydrating ingredients like Olive Oil and Organic Jojoba Oil (tip: they also double as a great shaving cream). Plus, there are scent options for every preference. Choose from Bulgarian Lavender, Lemon Verbena, Orange Blossom, Grapefruit or Unscented.
Never underestimate the power of a good bar of soap. Level Naturals bar soaps lather up, moisturize the skin and come in intoxicating essential oil derived scents like Frankincense + Myrrh, Lemon + Coconut and Vanilla + Charcoal.
Kosmatology body wash is concentrated with plant-based ingredients like Organic Olive Oil & Organic Shea Butter. A little goes a long way and lives skin feeling refreshed and hydrated. You can’t go wrong with essential oil derived scents like Goody Goody Grapefruit or Herbal Fresh.
Price: $8.29- $11.99
Just like their body wash, Griffin Remedy has a number of body lotion options that are affordable and effective. An easy swap for anyone using conventional body care since they come in at prices that are comparable to what you would find at the drugstore. We can’t pick a favorite scent and are always rotating through all of them- but there is an option for everyone!
This is not your average lotion. Kosmatology lotion bars are a unique water-less pressed lotion. Glide one on damp skin after a shower or bath and the ingredients sink right into the skin. Since they are free of water and preservatives, these are great for anyone with sensitive (like eczema) or children. Oh and BTW- you can get a Free mini Botanical Bliss Lotion Bar this month with any purchase. Don’t miss the opportunity to try one out and see what the fuss is all about!
Price: $10- $11
Non-toxic deodorant can cost upwards of $25. Not these options. Rustic Maka deodorant is effective even through the longest of days or sweatiest of workouts. Luna Bliss (a lightly floral, fresh scent), Takes Two to Mango (fruity & tropical) or Lemongrass Gardens. Each has ingredients to keep you feeling fresh and smelling good throughout the day.
What sets these deodorants apart are their super creamy consistency, nutrient dense ingredients and staying power. Organic juice pulp, hops, coconut oil and essential oils are combined to create an effective & refreshing deodorant. Choose from Eucalyptus Mint, Ginger Citrus or Smokey Cedar.
Not all clean, plant-based body care has to blow through your budget. We hope to make the switch to non-toxic body care easier on your wallet with these options.
