Face wipes and why they are bad for the skin

Posted by on

Face wipes are a bathroom essential for many people due to their convenience, cheapness and quickness for removing makeup at the end of each day.

What people don’t realise is that they are super bad for the skin. Each wipe is soaked in high levels of dehydrating alcohols, preservatives and synthetics in order to keep them moist, preserved and effective for using.

When using wipes on the skin and eye area, those harsh ingredients are then rubbed over the face in order to dissolve all traces of makeup. This constant rubbing especially round the delicate eye area can lead to those dreaded fine lines (that nobody wants)! For those people who don’t rinse the skin, those nasty ingredients are then left on the face during the night time and transferred to bed linen. This leaves the skin dirty, and causes the skin to become dehydrated, dry and premature ageing starting to set in. 

Once the wipes are used they are then discarded and start to cause disruption to the environment, impacting marine lives, sewage systems and lining beaches.


The job of a face wipe is to remove make up and impurities but they don’t provide the skin with any nutritional value or nourishment that it needs. Opting for natural cleanser from our range will ensure your skin is effectively cleansed, nourished and protected without the need for harsh skin damaging ingredients.

Our Face Cleansers are designed for different skin types in mind and are loaded with nutrients and vitamins for the skin. They also effectively remove eye makeup. By taking a little bit more time in the evening, your skin will soon start to feel healthier and more looked after.
