Face Wipes / Makeup Removers

From $7.00USD

These wipes are ideal for removing makeup, applying toner or using as baby wipes. They are larger than others so can be used a couple of times before needing a wash and double up for multiple functions. One side is baby soft and the other is a perfect exfoliator. They are made from a blend of hemp and either lyocell or cotton and are home compostable. We produce them in squares to eliminate the fabric waste cutting circles creates.

These wipes are ideal for removing makeup (we recommend with natural oil to reduce plastic waste and resources there too), applying toner or using as baby wipes. They are larger than others so can be used a couple of times before needing a wash and double up for multiple functions. One side is baby soft and the other is a perfect exfoliator. They are made from a blend of hemp and either lyocell or cotton and are home compostable. We produce them in squares to eliminate the fabric waste cutting circles creates.

These wipes are designed to last for years but at end of life, this product can simply be returned to the ground in compost or buried (please cut them up carefully).

Most baby and makeup wipes are synthetic, they build up in sewers and take up to 100 years to degrade in landfill. They are also packaged in plastic that goes straight to waste. They create fatbergs like this one and litter beaches across the world. The Marine Conservation Society estimates an average of 35 wipes found on every kilometre of beach in the UK (1). By using our face wipes you have purchased a much more sustainable fabric that can be used for years and years. You’ll be removing the oil required for plastic, the environmental destruction, unethical labor practises and transportation emissions and you’re helping to protect animals that suffer from plastic waste.

By purchasing this product you are also reducing major plastic waste and impacts on climate change, supporting our education and research across the world, providing jobs to vulnerable women in Cambodia in our own little product centre, and helping to support environmentalism & education to kids and communities in Cambodia.

These bags are designed to last for years but at end of life, this product can simply be returned to the ground in compost or buried.

Our produce bags are made at our own little centre supporting ethical labor and a happy workplace in rural Cambodia. We love spending a lot of time on the ground here.

Fabric
Our face wipes are made from a blend of hemp and either lyocell or cotton dependent on availability. One side is soft and one side has an exfoliation purpose.

Drawstring
The drawstring of the bag is made from 100% hemp twine from a sustainable in Thailand. It is twisted at our small, ethical sewing centre to make the cord.

Label
There are no labels on this product. If you select our hemp storage bag, the label is made from the off-cuts we save whilst cutting our products. This helps us reduce waste as much as possible and makes the labels 100% compostable.
