Whether you are at home or travelling, these bamboo cotton buds are versatileand can be used for removing makeup, applying medication or cleaning small surfaces. This is the simplest step you can take to reduce your plastic waste!
Made from bamboo, these double-sided cotton buds are compostable and come in a box of 100 sticks. Bamboo grows incredibly fast, making deforestation not an issue with its rapid and frequent growth spurts. It is also strong enough to prevent any form of splinters.
They replace plastic cotton buds which pose the following threats:
Wildlife might ingest them accidentally
Breaks down into microplastic
Makes up a significant percentage of sewage trash
Did you know? Cotton buds are the 8th most common piece of plastic pollution found on our beaches. You can reach more about plastic buds and marine litter in this article!
Please note that the packaging of the cotton buds might differ.

Are these buds reusable?
Unfortunately, they are not! We currently do not bring in reusable cotton buds as we feel like cotton buds are used mainly for hygienic purposes like applying medication. We do not wish to risk any form of contamination!
Imperfects are products that have been rejected by suppliers due to reasons such as being smaller in size, having dents, having no scents or being discoloured. All soaps still serve the same function but are not aesthetically appealing.
All soaps are vegan and free from synthetic fragrances, colours, sulphates and parabens.

Great eco-swap for normal cotton buds! Really helpful to apply medicine, clean wounds etc. I always try to have at least a box on hand! Honestly it’s just like regular cotton buds haha, just biodegradable.
