Why You Should Choose Reusable Face Cloths, Wipes & Pads

We have grown up being taught to buy single-use wipes for everything under the sun, from wipes to clean our cars to make-up remover wipes. No wonder we are clogging up our landfills, when the products we throw away after just one use last for years before they break down, leaving traces of micro plastics in our soils and our oceans that will last forever.

Yes, you clocked it. Most of the regular wipes we use contain plastic, which means we are exposing our faces and bodies to these tiny toxic particles on a daily basis. It is time to ditch the plastic and say yes to sustainable, plastic free and natural materials that are kind to our skin and our world

Why not all reusable cloths are good for you or the environment

Don’t get caught out. Unfortunately, not all reusable cloths are good for the environment. One of the main culprits are microfiber cloths. Microfiber cloths contain micro-plastics that when washed these tiny particles break off into the water and end up in our oceans. Microfibre cloths are also not biodegradable because of these little plastic particles and so at the end of their life they have to go into landfill.

The best reusable face cloth 

The best face cloth and eco-friendly alternative to the average single-use wipe, is one made from cotton or bamboo, which is natural and biodegradable. Reusable wipes are a more conscious and sustainable choice in our skincare routine and are much kinder to our bodies and the environment.

Why is organic cotton kinder to the environment?

Although, most single use wipes and pads contain some cotton it is unfortunately not made from the same sustainable organic cotton that our reusable wipes, cloths and pads are made from. Non-organic cotton, for cheap single use products, is made on large scale farms that saps our resources and has an extremely negative impact on our world.

To put this in perspective 20,000 litres of water is used to produce just 1kg of cotton, which makes only 15-20 packs of cotton pads. That is a crazy amount of water for products that are used once and then thrown away!

Plus, non-organic cotton products that are usually disposable are in such high demand that the farmers use chemicals, fertilisers and pesticides because they can. It is shocking that these sorts of chemicals are allowed to be used because where do you think they will go? They will end up in our land, our seas and will be on the food that our animals and insects eat. I think it goes without saying that these toxic chemicals not only affect the health of the creatures but also have a serious impact on the farmers that have been told to use them.

So not only do plastics intentionally get put into these wipes but chemicals that have ended up on the cotton through the farming are also in amongst these wipes and pads that you use on your skin. Plus, with these sorts of toxins in the pad and wipe they will never leave our earth and will end up back in the earth once it biodegrades.

By choosing organic cotton when picking your reusable cloths, you are also choosing the health of yourself, others and our environment.

Benefits of organic cotton & bamboo reusable cloths, wipes and pads

Obviously the above is a huge reason why you may want to switch to an eco-friendlier option, but there are so many more benefits and reasons why we love our reusable cloths.

  • Kind to your skin - Bamboo & organic cotton cloths are by far the softest cloths you will ever use. They are gentler on your skin because the materials are 100% natural and cared for and do not contain any scratchy plastic pieces.
  • Kind to your sensitivities- These eco-friendly reusable cloths do not contain any chemicals, artificial products or toxins from fertilisers and pesticides and so are so much better for your skin. And with them containing naturally antibacterial bamboo in them, they will leave your skin feeling less dried out and so are especially great for people with sensitive skin or dry skin conditions.
  • Kind to the environment - We love that these reusable cloths, wipes and pads are 100% zero waste and cause less pollution. When they come to the end of their life they can be popped in the compost and will fully biodegrade, leaving nothing nasty or negative behind. 
  • Kind for your wallet – The initial upfront cost for these reusable wipes, cloths and pads may put you off but just think how much money you will be saving in the long run for something that will not need to be replaced regularly and can be reused.

Plus, these reusable cloths come in so many different sizes so that you can choose the ones that will suit the task at hand best, whether that is for face cleansing, removing make-up, wiping up the mess your little ones make, taking your nail polish off or just washing your face. 

We stock a range of face wipes, face pads & face cloths such as: Bamboo Terry Wipes (Pack of 5), Organic Bamboo & Cotton Travel Wipes, Organic Bamboo & Cotton Flannel, Organic Cotton Make-up Remover Pads & Wash Bag, Small Muslin Face Cloth and even Reusable Nail Polish Remover Pads.

How to care for your reusable cloth wipes and pads

Most of your reusable cloth, wipes and pads can be rinsed in cold water under the tap, using soap if required and then laundered in the washing machine. Leave to dry naturally to minimise shrinking.
