As well as removing makeup, our reusable wipes can be used to remove nail varnish, baby-changing, to apply an oil, etc.
Our wipes are a must-have in a minimalist and zero waste bathroom. They are dye-free, from organic agriculture.
A handmade wipe
Our wipes are handmade in our own workshop.
Lucille and her team make around one hundred wipes by hand each day in our workshop. We are very proud of their work.
Drawn by the ambition of working with ethical and sustainable fabric, they spent a lot of time researching to find a material which would be suitable for as many people as possible.
A GOTS-certified cotton
Our cotton is a genuine vegetable fibre from cotton seeds. Our makeup remover wipes suit all types of skin, in particular the most sensitive ones. They thoroughly clean your face, so you don’t need to rub too hard, while staying soft and pleasant for the skin.
Often controversial, cotton has been used for centuries as textile fibre, and stays a very good alternative to all plastic-based fabrics (polyester) and animal-based ones (leather, wool).
The cotton we use (thread, fabric, label) is certified by GOTS which ensures the respect of social and environmental norms. This demanding certification is hard to get and is a true guarantee of quality and trust.
Our reusable wipes are double-sided. The fleecy side allows a gentle makeup removal whereas the micro-sponge side offers efficient removal of tougher makeup.
Our wipes are GOTS-certified.
This certificate ensures that the production methods used are eco-friendly but also that decent working conditions are respected.

A sustainable and eco-friendly gesture
Using our organic cotton makeup remover pads will allow you to considerably reduce your waste in your bathroom. If you remove your makeup each day, this represents around 730 single-use wipes each year for one person.
Our pack of five reusable wipes can be kept for around 10 years.
With their large format (around 9 x 9 cm), one wipe is enough to remove all your makeup. This is a great way of saving money while being beneficial for your health and the planet!
How to keep your wipes in good condition?
To keep your wipes clean, we recommend washing them by hand after using them or in your machine in a 30°C wash maximum.
It’s best to put them in a washing net to avoid damaging the fabric. They can shrink by about 10% after the first wash, even with cold water.
Don’t use a tumble dryer to dry them, the best is to leave them air-dry.
Last but not least, you don’t need to iron your wipes as cotton doesn’t need it.
For a thorough wash, we recommend leaving the wipes to soak for 12h in 1L boiling water with 2 tbsp sodium percarbonate and 1 tbsp soda crystals, and then washing them in the machine. You can do this if they are stained or as soon you think it is necessary.
