3 Affordable Cruelty-Free Skincare Brands You Should Try

3 Affordable Cruelty-Free Skincare Brands You Should Try | Life of Dahlia

In today’s post I want to share with you three affordable cruelty-free brands I think you should try, these brands have a lot to offer not only do they offer affordable skincare but they also offer other products like body wash & lotions, hair care, etc.

I feel like skincare should be a vital part of your routine, being our largest organ we need to take care of it but that doesn’t mean having to fork out hundreds of dollars on expensive serums and lotions.

Their are plenty of more affordable brands on the market that offer basic skincare as well as serums and lotions, so don’t feel the need to spend lots of money on taking care of your skin.

I’m going to share three of my favourite affordable skincare brands that are staples in my routine.

Cruelty-Free Skincare Brands

I have used many products from all of the following mentioned brands for a long time and I honestly love the products that I use from each of them.

Essano Beauty

I’ve been using Essano products for years and repurchased my favourite products from them multiple times, what I love is that Essano specializes in rosehip oil, it is one of the main ingredients in most of their products. They include it in their skincare, body wash & body lotions. I love Rosehip oil as it is great for aging skin like mine, Rosehip oil has natural actives, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids, which help in creating a natural defense against fine lines, wrinkles, scars and stretch marks.

They also offer some fantastic hair care with ingredients like coconut oil, argan oil, keratin and acai berry. Having coloured hair I need hair care products that don’t contain any sulfates because it can increase fading, it’s often hard to find that in an affordable price range.

Essano is certified organic, they are working towards being a sustainable company meaning they care about the environment and they also don’t test on animals.

Sukin Organics

I have used a variety of skincare products from Sukin Organics, including their moisturizers and face masks. I have loved most of the products I’ve tried from this brand. What I love most about this brand is that they offer a variety of skincare for different skin types whether you have dry skin, oily, combo or aging skin you should be able to find something to suit your skin types.

Sukin offers more than just skincare, you can also find a range of haircare and body care products amongst their range. Sukin offers products that are made with Australian made ingredients that are naturally derived, cruelty-free and vegan so you don’t have to worry about finding any things like sulfates,parabens, mineral oils and other such ingrediens in their products.

Palmer’s is one you have probably heard of they have been around for a long time and are a staple in many homes I would think, they are best-known product being their Cocoa Butter range, but did you know they offer skincare as well. In their range, you can find moisturizers, serums and cleansing oils.

I love their cleansing oil, its great for getting rid of stubborn makeup, I can have a full face of makeup on and all I have to do is put some of this on top and then wash it off with water. My favourite though has to be the body lotions in either the cocoa butter or coconut oil formulas.

They have a huge range of products that includes skincare, body care, and hair care.

Palmer’s are a member of World Cocoa Foundation and Global Shea Alliance ‘which helps to provide economic, social and environmental support to farmers and their families around the world.’ Palmer’s are a cruelty-free brand they don’t test their products on animals and they are a member of Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, which ‘helps set social and environmental standards for sustainable palm oil production, such as no clearing of primary tropical forests, conservation of natural habitats, and respect for workers and indigenous people. Palmer’s and its suppliers are committed to responsible and sustainable palm production.’ What’s not to love about that. – sourced from Palmers Website

Update: If you choose to avoid palm oil all together then Palmer’s may be a brand to avoid I think its a common ingredient in their products.
