Go Back to an Old-Fashioned Flannel
Do you remember growing up that you would wash your face with a flannel? It was made of cotton, lasted for years, then would biodegrade at end of use. Today, millions of women (and men) use plastic-wrapped disposable wipes, that block up drains when people wrongly flush them down the loo. They are covered in chemicals, irritate skin (so people then buy more products to remedy). Just use a natural organic cleanser, and a flannel. Much simpler!
Scottish company Seilich has just become the world’s first cosmetics company to be awarded the certified wildlife-friendly award. This is because it grows Scottish wildflowers to help pollinators, which form the base of its products, and only harvests at the optimum time, to avoid disturbing wildlife. It also quite uniquely does not use essential oils, preferring to use all parts of the plants instead. It also makes these lovely face cloths made locally from recycled materials. These are made from leftover textile yarn, then crocheted to gently exfoliate. Includes a hanging loop.
