Why You Should Use All-Natural Makeup Remover and Leave Store-Bought Products on the Shelf
Updated: Jul 18, 2019
Many women are using disposable makeup remover wipes daily, but are they really good for your skin and the environment?
Makeup remover wipes are convenient, and they are very affordable, but both the environment and the skin on your face can pay a heavy price. These one-time-use pads are piling up in landfills, it’s estimated that there are 20 million pounds of single-use pads are ending up in American landfills (including both disinfecting wipes and baby wipes). Makeup remover wipes are not designed to breakdown quickly, these wipes can take years to disappear. People are also flushing their used wipes down the toilet; this too has a horrible impact on our environment and the animals relying on clean water for survival. City workers around the world are regularly dealing with clogged pipes from people flushing wipes.
Some of the most commonly found makeup remover wipes contain chemicals that are very bad for the human skin including triclosan, parabens, phthalates, along with many others. Too many of these chemicals are known as Endocrine disruptors, chemicals known to interfere with the body’s natural hormonal system and cause birth defects, cancerous tumors and more.
