I’m always on the lookout for budget-friendly clean makeup for my 2 teenage girls. According to Dr. Kim Harley, Faculty Director of Wallace Center for Maternal, Child and Adolescent Health, teens may be at higher risk of exposure to harmful chemicals in personal care products due to rapid reproductive development.

Research indicates that it really does matter what types of products teens are using in their beauty routines. In a 2016 study, 100 Latina teenagers had their urine tested for endocrine-disrupting chemicals before and after using products free from phthalates, parabens, triclosan and oxybenzone for 3 days. In that short amount of time, there were significant drops in the amounts of most of the endocrine-disrupting chemicals after using the non-toxic products.

When it comes to my teens and myself, I make a conscious decision to purchase makeup products that don’t contain any endocrine-disrupting chemicals. Since clean, organic and natural makeup can be on the pricey side, I put together a list of makeup products that won’t break the bank. With categories ranging from eyes to face + Cheeks to lips + nails, all of the makeup I’ve listed is $20 and under.
