Use these round, cotton facial pads to remove make up, cleanse or tone your skin. Then pop them into the bag, tie a quick knot (so they don't fall out and get lost) and then throw them into the washing machine to clean ready for the next time you need them.
CaliWoods cotton facial pads are 100% plastic free and are a GOTS certified organic cotton. Meaning that you can be confident knowing that these cotton pads have been created in the most sustainable and ethical way possible.
"The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognised as the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well." Quote taken from here.
Many shops sell cotton round pads and we've all used them, but we now know that these are made from cotton grown with pesticides (because it's cheaper to grow). But that harms both the environment and the farmers. Cotton is also a really thirsty plant, using as much as 20,000 litres of water to produce just 1kg of cotton.
Investing in reusable certified organic cotton is really the most environmentally friendly option for a product such as this one. No pesticides were used along the process from growing to manufacturing and you're getting the most out of what water was used to grow the cotton, by using it time and time again.
