Minimalists rejoiced when the one-stop online shop Brandless first launched its line of quality, nondescript household goods—from non-GMO snacks to responsibly sourced office supplies—for less than the price of a latte. Now, the brand is taking aim at your beauty regimen, offering clean options—all of which cost a mere $3.

They’re all made without parabens, phthalates, and other toxic ingredients you likely already avoid on the reg.

Not only are the products in their line affordable, but they’re all made without parabens, phthalates, and other toxic ingredients you likely already avoid on the reg. “We banned 400-plus potentially harmful ingredients and replaced them with plant-based powerhouses like aloe, citrus, and green tea,” says Brandless co-founder Tina Sharkey. “We [also] made sure our products work on every type of skin and every type of hair.”

Currently, the line consists of everything from sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner to body lotion to facial cleanser. It also includes a handful of bathroom accessories that you don’t think about (until you run out), such as cotton rounds and hand soap.

According to Brandless, personal care products often have a “brand tax” on them that has the potential to raise prices by up to 370 percent—and people could even be regularly paying a markup of 40 percent on everyday goods. Brandless decided to go against that grain, much to the benefit of your wallet (and now your skin). Ever think you’d pay more for your a.m. beverage than your moisturizer?
