Swap It Out- Face Wipes

Do you know what’s hiding in your favorite facial wipe? Take these Oil of Olay wipes for example, the very first ingredient is Petrolatum, followed by PEG-100, two Parabens, lab-made fragrances, Phenoxyethanol, Disodium EDTA, more PEGs, and various other irritating ingredients, not to mention, they are owned by Proctor & Gamble, a brand that still actively tests on animals.
When choosing a facial wipe, or any skincare product for that matter, I also choose fragrance-free as synthetic {fragrance} can have various links to allergic reactions and hormone disruptions. I also personally avoid the use of controversial {Parabens} as there are many studies finding they may cause healthy cells to turn into cancerous cells and more hormone disruptions. Many brands then replace Parabens with {Phenoxyethanol} which still has similar links to skin irritations and is considered a potential neurotoxin. Another synthetic I avoid is {PEG-100} as it has links to kidney toxicity with the possibility of being contaminated with carcinogens.

Swap It Out!

For those wanting a more gentle approach to their facial wipes, I carry the Kaia Naturals brand in the Organic Bunny store as they are scented with essential oils and made from 100% Biodegradable Bamboo! I am obsessed with these for removing makeup or as a quick way to cleanse the skin in between showers. To learn more about this safer swap, head here!
