Environmentally-friendly beauty products are becoming increasingly popular. Here are the bio-degradable wipes you need for on-the-go cleansing…
They’ve saved our pillows after nights out and made festival skincare a breeze, but make-up wipes might soon become a guilty memory. Made from polyester, they’re to blame for 93% of blockages in Britain’s sewers, according to Water UK – and the government has pledged to eradicate them, and all other avoidable plastic waste, by 2025.
Hooray for the environment, and for these plastic-free biodegradable versions that mean instant cleansing is still within reach…
