Switch To Sustainable Makeup Remover Pads from Cotton Balls

Sustainability is the need of the hour, and we all should take baby steps towards making a switch before it’s too late. It’s a pretty known fact that the beauty industry is one of the major contributors to the overwhelming heaps of permanent waste manufactured annually. The waste is not just restricted to plastic bottles and fancy packaging, single-use items that we reach out to every time following a skincare regimen and then tossing it in the trash is a new evil. Yes, we are talking about disposable cotton balls that most of us use to remove makeup.

According to research, the amount of water required to produce one kilogram of cotton is equivalent to one of the basic T-shirts and the same amount one person would need to drink over three years. Keeping this in mind, we usually keep our t-shirts for longer than a day, so imagine the amount of water is wasted producing a single-use cotton ball.

Ditching these single-use cotton pads for a reusable alternative would not only reduce water wastage, but we’d be emptying our bins, and fewer cotton pads are disposed of and ending up in the landfill. These reusable makeup remover pads are washable and absolutely easy and gentle to use. It definitely helps save on some extra bucks and is great for applying toners and essences too.  Here’s our exclusive edit of reusable makeup remover pads that we are totally in love with. They’re safe and easy to use, we promise.
