In general, cotton pads are small pieces of cotton about 5-6 centimeters made of cotton or paper pulp, which plays a very important role in skincare.
There are three main types of cotton pads, pure cotton pads, cotton pads with mixed materials, and non-woven fabrics cotton pads.
Pure cotton pads: They are soft and comfortable with little friction on the skin, and they can be torn into multiple pieces for wet compresses. However, they are relatively thick with large water absorption. In addition, they are highly comfortable to use without stimulation, fluorescence, or sensitization. And they are environmentally friendly.
Cotton pads with mixed materials: They use most cotton mixed with a small amount of fiber, which is soft and tough. They are suitable for makeup removal. However, they have high friction, people with sensitive skin should be careful when using them.
Non-woven fabrics cotton pads: They are light and water-saving. And they are large, pullable, and suitable for wet compress. However, they are not suitable for wiping and makeup removal. And the types of spunlace nonwoven fabric used are various including makeup remover cotton pads, medical cotton pads, cosmetic cotton pads, etc.
Note: Since makeup cotton is directly in contact with the skin, natural cotton is the softest and most comfortable material. Artificial fibers should be avoided. In addition, the addition of any chemicals should be avoided as well.
There are several types of cotton pads available on the market, including:
Conventional cotton pads: These are the most common type of cotton pads and are used for a variety of purposes, such as removing makeup, applying toner, or cleansing the skin.
Organic cotton pads: These are made from 100% organic cotton and are free from synthetic fibres, chemicals, and pesticides. They are a great choice for those with sensitive skin or who prefer to use natural products.
Exfoliating cotton pads: These have a textured surface that helps to gently exfoliate the skin while removing dirt and makeup.
Dual-sided cotton pads: These have a smooth side for applying products and a textured side for gentle exfoliation.
Thin cotton pads: These are thinner than regular cotton pads and are great for applying toner or other liquid products.
Thick cotton pads: These are thicker than regular thickness cotton pads and are great for removing heavy makeup or for applying thicker products like creams and lotions.
Multi-layered cotton pads: These are made up of several layers of cotton and are great for absorbing large amounts of liquid products.
Pre-moistened cotton pads: These are already soaked in a liquid solution, such as micellar water, and are great for quick and easy makeup removal.
Lint-free cotton pads: These are specially designed to minimize shedding and are ideal for use with liquid or oil-based products.
Silicone cotton pads: These are reusable and can be used in place of traditional cotton pads. They are environmentally friendly and can be washed and reused multiple times.
Pressed edge: The cotton pads with pressed edges are not easy to drop flocculation, and it is not easy to exudate water and waste lotion during use.
Non-pressed edge: The cotton pads with non-pressed edges are more suitable for separate use according to the needs. When purchasing, you need to pay attention to its ductility and whether it is easy to drop flocculation.
Full edge: It has both the convenience of the cosmetic cotton pads with a pressed edge and the thickness of cotton pads with a non-pressed edge. It has high technical requirements for the tissue paper to ensure that it does not wrinkle.
The quality of cotton pads is not determined by thickness or thinness. The key to quality cotton pads is that they do not drop residue and do not deform after use. Thicker cotton pads are more comfortable to use than thinner ones, but they absorb more water. However, please do not use thin cotton pads because of fear of waste. The thickness should be sufficient so that the lotion can absorb enough water. In this way, the skin feels very comfortable and there is no stimulation caused by excessive friction.
Pure cotton pads can be used for wiping lotion and skincare. Both pure cotton pads and cotton pads with mixed materials can be used for makeup removal, nail polish removal and secondary cleaning. Non-woven fabrics cotton pads with a non-pressed edge can be used for wet compresses.
