Why Reusable?

Clean vegan beauty is all about caring for our skin along with our planet. The average person uses over 80,000 cotton pads in their lifetime: imagine all the waste that creates! To make matters worse, cotton pads are bleached and non-biodegradable, meaning they can spend over 100 years sitting in landfills.

Additionally, commercially-grown cotton is doused with some of the most harmful pesticides used in agriculture. Over 10% of all pesticides in the world are used on cotton, and some of them—such as aldicarb and methamidophos—were originally formulated as chemical warfare agents with devastating effects on the human body. These pesticides can also poison farm workers and contaminate water sources, causing long-term environmental damage.


Reusable makeup remover pads can last for years and are a great way to take care of your wallet, too!

Why Bamboo?

Bamboo textile is a soft, cloth-like material made from bamboo. Not only is it vegan and biodegradable, but it’s also naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial, making it an eco-friendly beauty pick. Bamboo is also ultra-renewable; it’s been recorded to grow almost a meter in a day!

Bamboo is native to regions of Asia, Australia, and the Americas, where it's used as a cooling component in herbal TCM remedies. In Hong Kong, this versatile material is also a common alternative to metal scaffolding:

Did you know? Bamboo is actually a type of grass, and one of the fastest-growing plants in the world!

  3. Pour a moderate amount of Antioxidant Hydrating Toning Essence on a Bamboo Cotton Pad. (Check out our application guide for more toner tips and tricks!)
