Beautiful bamboo storage box
The bamboo storage box is designed to serve as a holder at the same time. Put the holder in your bathroom/makeup table, and easily grab the cotton swabs. You can also use the lid as a (second) holder.
Will my ears get clean with these cotton swabs?
Yes, the swab with the small nodules is suitable for this purpose to clean your auricles.
How can I clean the swabs?
I clean my cotton swabs with some LUSH soap and hot running water. Soap well and use your fingers to knead and rub the silicone tips until clean. Then ready for reuse again! For thorough cleaning once in a while boil the cotton buds for a few seconds. Dishwasher and washing machine we are still testing.
What about the makeup swab?
You can use the wand with the smooth head to touch up your makeup. For example, to blur and touch up your eyeliner and/or lipstick. Before using the makeup wand, I recommend applying very small amount of jojoba-based oil on the pointed tip. Work and correct your makeup and use the round tip to remove the residue. I recommend that you experiment with this mostly with what works for you.
We even have clients who use it for precision work when painting. It is not so suitable for removing makeup. Want to remove your makeup in a sustainable way? Then try Bamboozy washable cotton pads.
Disadvantages and concerns
- The silicone tips do not absorb moisture like traditional cotton pads do
- It may take some getting used to because the material is naturally different
- Cleaning your ear canal is at your own risk (this also applies to traditional cotton swabs)
- Not so suitable for removing make-up
- Do not press too hard on the bamboo swabs. It is wood and not plastic, if you want to apply pressure, keep your fingers as close as possible to where you are applying pressure
Is this safe?
The tips are made of the highest quality silicone and is certified as "food grade" by the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and free of BPA.
Silicone is a product which is made from silica and with sand or glass. A heating process turns it into a rubbery product. Although some do not consider it a "natural" product, its biggest advantage over plastic is that it does not break down into microplastics.
Cotton swabs are the most commonly found product on beaches. Because of the plastic in the stick, cotton swabs contribute a large portion of microplastics. Animals unknowingly eat this with all its consequences. It is therefore certainly not insignificant to reduce this because it is "only" a cotton swab. Together we can make a difference 🙌.
