Earth Day is just around the corner, and in celebration of this lovely day, we thought it’d be lovely to highlight some affordable beauty products that we love. Most people tend to think that natural makeup and skin care products need to be expensive in order to actually be effective, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

These days, there are lots of really effective, eco-friendly, ethically produced products at a lower price point. Toxin-free beauty should be accessible to everyone and we are thrilled that so many beauty brands, both indie and high-end, are embracing the use of cleaner ingredients and using ethical sourcing for their items.

Natural beauty means different things to different people, but in general, we’re looking for brands that use naturally-derived, plant-based, ethically-sourced products. When a brand is conscious of the footprint they are leaving behind, they’re probably being extremely thoughtful about where their ingredients come from and prioritize treating their employees well.

So we’ve curated a list to help you with your natural beauty shopping, whether it’s for yourself or if you want to get a head start on your Mother’s Day gift. It’s time for a bit of pampering.

Here are 19 natural beauty products under $15:
