Reusable Makeup Remover Pads
When it comes to removing nail polish or applying toner, ditch your single use cotton balls and opt for reusable pads. Not only does cotton production waste water, but it also requires farming practices dependent on chemicals, pesticides and pollutants. Reusable pads pair perfectly with micellar water and come in a variety of textures that can help exfoliate the skin. To clean, simply throw the pads into the washing machine during your weekly laundry load.
It’s no secret the beauty industry has its fill of single-use plastics and excessive packaging. Supporting brands that use post-consumer recycled packaging and bottles, like alila, is an effective way to give single-use plastic a second life. If you're down to the last drop of product, try repurposing the container for eco-friendly storage or decor.
The best way to cut down on waste is to reduce your overall consumption. Finding all-in-one beauty products eliminates the need for excessive production and packaging, which will reduce landfill waste and water waste. All-in-one products, like alila's Omnia All-In-One Skin Perfector, are also great for freeing up space on your beauty shelf, budgeting expenses, and minimizing your skincare routine.
Countless beauty products contain harmful chemicals like sulfates, parabens and phthalates that have damaging effects on the environment. Not only do these toxic additives compromise skin health, but also can leak into the ocean to disturb aquatic life or contaminate agricultural land. Finding products that contain ethically-sourced, natural ingredients like jojoba seed oil, bisabolol, and lactic acid will benefit your skin and the overall health of our planet.
