|Even my husband loves this and asked me to re-purchase it asap. If my husband likes something, I tend to listen because he rarely agrees with me on products or just doesn't have much concern.|
I just wanted to make a quick post today, as an order I placed arrived and I just wanted to talk about it. I just re-purchased the Shiseido Facial Cotton pads and I paid about $9.50 for a pack of 165 sheets. Each sheet I can about two uses out of because I cut them in half. I buy these because they are cotton pads I trust and are tested for harmful substances. Cotton is one of the most heavily treated materials, because of the heavy amount of insecticides that are used in treating cotton.
When we use cotton to treat a wound or to remove make-up or to apply a treatment product, the thought that this piece of cotton has harmful substances doesn’t cross our mind. Well, maybe it does for some of you, but it didn’t for me until a few months ago.
The thought that I was applying my organic/natural products to my skin, with a material treated with harmful substances, did not sit well with me. Better yet, I was treating burns/cuts on my body with cotton that was harmful and I was putting that directly into my blood stream? Yes, there are other harmful ingredients in products we use daily or come into contact with, but it is important to become aware of what is in the products we use.
Does this mean you need to quickly switch to 100% organic today? No. All that this means is to do your own research and question the ingredients in the food and products you use. I think the problem with people going organic or natural, is you start to become overwhelmed with the information and you want to switch 100% in a day. I know I felt that way, so I try to transition myself step by step, to make better and more informed decisions with what I purchase.
Could I get cheaper cotton pads? Could I get better cotton pads? Sure I can, but this is what I am comfortable using right now. Here is a link to read more about cotton and how it is treated.
