There are two major divisions in material: synthetic and natural fibre. Synthetics like polyester, nylon, microfiber fleeces will not decompose.
While natural fibres such as organic cotton, bamboo, hemp, pure wool, ramie, silk or any combination of them will compost over a sufficient amount of time.
One of the benefits of ecosophist reusable makeup remover pads is that they are made of natural fibres!!!
This means that not only will you have a period of 200-250 washes, zero-waste skincare and makeup routine but you can compost our reusable makeup removal pads or dispose of them guilt-free. But that’s the purpose of an ecosophist right?
A question we commonly get asked is how to dispose of your reusable makeup remover pads?

As with every other object around your home from household items, to skincare products, clothes, etc… The best way to be an ecosophist is to make these items reusable and recyclable.
Have you finished with your face cream? Clean the container and find a way to reuse it, maybe to store your clean reusable makeup pads? Maybe to put your bamboo-cotton buds?
