There are many benefits to using a face cloth as part of your daily hygiene routine, including:
- cleaner skin
- brighter skin
- exfoliation of the skin
- buff away dry and dead skin cells
- minimise the appearance of blackheads and acne
What makes these face cloths unique is their organic status.
Face cloths are typically made from cotton which is an immensely popular material. Cotton, however, pose many negatives.
The production of cotton is extremely taxing on land and water resources. It can take up to 20,000 litres of water to make 1kg of cotton.
Cotton production also accounts for over 10% of worldwide pesticide use and 25% of insecticide use.
According to WHO (World Health Organisation), 20,000 deaths are caused each year by pesticide poisoning in developing countries. This is primarily due to the fumes being inhaled during the manufacturing process.
Why Choose Organic Muslin Face Cloths?
Organic cotton is grown in a way which lessens the impact on the environment. One massive positive with organic growing is that it uses growing systems that replenish and maintain soil fertility. This builds biologically diverse agriculture.
In addition, organic cotton uses far less water in its production.
The primary benefit of choosing organic cotton is the fact that crops aren’t treated with pesticides, insecticides, herbicides or Genetically Modified Organisms.
From a hygiene perspective, choosing organic cotton means you are not rubbing your face with material grown using a wide array of nasty chemicals.
Furthermore, the gentle texture makes for a luxurious face massage when cleansing.
