If you read our post The Top 3 Myths About Organic Skincare, you would know it’s a widely held belief that organic skincare products are expensive. Personally, I don’t think they’re expensive when you compare them to some of the big name brands that charge well into the hundreds of dollars for a moisturiser or cleanser.
Still, they’re not as cheap as many supermarket or pharmacy brands. (The reason why they’re so cheap is that they usually contain mostly water and very inexpensive fragrances and preservatives — but that’s another story).
So, I’m aware that there are many people on a tight budget who would love to buy a wide range of certified organic skincare products, but when they do the math for say, eight of their favourite products, they freak out.
When it comes to buying organic, it doesn’t have to be all or nothing. You can pick and choose the products that are most important, and buy the organic versions. Then go for cheaper, non-organic brands if you need to for other products.
If I had to suggest which Mukti Organics products someone on a budget should buy first, I would say:
If you have any spare cashola left over, your next choices could be:
Here’s a little trick to help your product go further: if you apply your moisturiser while your skin is still damp after your shower, it will assist with penetration and it will spread a lot further, so you won’t need to use as much.
The other message I’d like to give the budget-conscious is that certified organic products are often concentrated (i.e. full of active ingredients rather than bulked out with water), so you will only need to use a tiny amount, much less than what you may be used to using.
So, buying certified organic skincare products when you’re on a budget is really quite doable. It’s all in the mindset.
