This is great news!

We’re all getting far more conscious of the environment these days, and rightly so.

The good news is that many companies and businesses are also getting more environmentally aware.

In fact, the gorgeous folks at NIVEA have just launched a new makeup wipe, and it’s biodegradable.

Most makeup wipes are made with plastic materials like polyester, which take over 500 years to break down.

So that basically means that every makeup wipe ever made is sitting in a landfill somewhere.

How scary is that?

These soft and gentle wipes are made with 100 percent renewable plant fibres, so you can take your makeup off without the guilt.


NIVEA Biodegradable Cleansing Wipes are enriched with specially selected Organic Argan Oil and Organic Aloe Vera.

So they leave the skin feeling beautifully smooth while also protecting your eyelashes.

Oh, and sure, they’re also suitable for sensitive skin. Gorge.

NIVEA has used ingredients inspired by nature to create high performance wipes that bring out the natural beauty of your skin – to make you look and feel your best.

How nice is that?

The wipes gently but effectively cleanse the skin, while maintaining it’s natural balance

They thoroughly remove face and eye make-up and provide the skin with refreshing moisture.

So basically, they’re gorge on the skin, and sustainable for the environment.
