Makeup has always been an obsession of mine, so discovering that the eye make up removers in my bathroom contained some harsh chemicals completely freaked me out.
Even a gentle looking 'chamomile infused' one I got from a well known eco-friendly shop which says on the box "A gentle lotion that effectively removes eye make-up, while gently soothing and conditioning the skin around the delicate eye area" includes 8 potentially carcinogen ingredients. Yes , Eight!!!. Those Eight that doesn't include the Ninth ingredient Sodium Laureth Sulfate which can be contaminated with a toxin called 1,4 Dioxane which is a "known human immune system toxicant" – no wonder my eyes are always red and tired.
So instead of spending around $10 for that cool looking bottle of toxins, simply wet an organic cotton make-up pad and add a little Certified Organic Coconut oil
