These reusable makeup remover pads are made out of 100% certified organic cotton (GOTS = Global Organic Textile Standard). They don’t contain any chemicals, neither in material nor in colouring. Since they are reusable they can last for many years and are therefore cost-efficient. With their soft surfaces they are specially suitable for sensitive skin.
The reusable makeup remover pads are very easy to clean. Either wash them in the mashine at 30° or by hand with some warm water. Please wash before first use because they might loose some fibres initially. They’ll shrink slightly after the first wash but should’t change size after that. Note that the actual product colours may vary from colours shown on your screen.
We produce the cotton pads in our own workshop in Berlin. Therefore we can assure that there is no waste in the production process. It is fair trade and handmade!
Disposable cotton pads may be a convenient way of removing makeup. But cotton is very water consuming the production. And it is the most wide spread non food crop in the world. The WWF estimates an average of 2700 litres of water needed to produce one single t-shirt. And at least you don’t dispose it after every use. They call this the “virtual water” we consume every day. Additionally most cotton plantations rely heavily on pesticides. They are harmful for the soil and for the people working on those plantations.
