Not all wipes are made equal

Posted on February 22, 2020 inBeauty

In the past few years makeup wipes have had a bad rap by many in the beauty world. Top two reasons being they are bad for the environment and that wipes are terrible for the skin. We agree wipes should never replace a proper cleanse – i.e. with water, however there are times when it’s inconvenient to do so – such as travelling, hiking, or even when the alternative is going to bed with your makeup on.

LBB is an ethical on-the-go brand and we created Take Off -Touch Down, our individually wrapped complexion and confidence restoring speed cleansing cloths a cut above the rest. Read on to understand what makes Take Off-Touch Down special.

1. A High-Performance, Multitasking Formula 

These one-step complexion-restoring face and body cloths are infused with a high-performing prebiotic skincare formula to deeply cleanse, exfoliate, hydrate, soothe inflammation, and lift even stubborn waterproof eye makeup. Actives include salicylic acid, hydrating & nourishing algae and microbiome boosting pre-biotic and probiotics complex. As well as a soothing blend of relaxing essential oils to elevate relaxation. 

We worked very hard and with very experienced chemists and a dermatologist on our formulation so we’d create a really good cleansing wipe. One that would minimise all of the downsides of using a wipe (dry skin, irritation, or even the wipe going dry – read this to understand what’s in ours).

2. No nasties for your skin

Our gentle natural formula is sealed individually in foil rappers to keep it fresh, effective and free of harsh preservatives used in many other wipes . This also means that you can be more conscious about how you use it. i.e. you only use it what you need without worrying that it will dry-out. Our hack on flights is to use a rubber band to seal the wrapper once you’ve opened them, to reuse before Touch-down, get it Take Off – Touch Down. Our cloths have also been dermatologically tested as suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.

3. No nasties for the environment

Our LBB cloths are 100% biodegradable, mostly made from fibres derived from wood such as bamboo. Bamboo is sustainable because it grows fast, requires next to no fertiliser and self-regenerates from its own roots. . – this was a non-negotiable from the start of development. You can dispose of them by composting. You should never flush them (in the same way we hope that you do not flush sanitary products or paper).

4. Premium, Extra Large Cloths.

A premium weighted cloth (100gsm) that soft & gentle on skin, won’t chaff or disintegrate when used. It’s also larger than average (20x30cm) so they can be used on the face and body. They are a God send on long-haul flights, hospital overnighter, outdoor activities and festivals.  You can go up to 8 times to get all the dirt off especially if you wear heavy make-up.

Wipes are not perfect, but we made ours a cut above the rest. For those who want a convenient, high quality and ethical on-the-go solution – get yours here TAKE-OFF, TOUCH-DOWN OUR XL BIODEGRADABLE FACE AND BODY CLEANSING CLOTH.
