The GG’s Opinion: These are ridiculously soft, absorbent + usually get the job done in one clean swipe! LOVE that these are whitened with hydrogen peroxide instead of toxic chlorine bleach + also heart that that are very affordable since I use these daily to apply + remove anything + everything! I never really even knew that Organic ones were even available until a recent trip to Whole Foods. According to the USDA, conventional cotton is the third most heavily insecticide/herbicide treated U.S. crop (behind corn + soy).  Apparently Cotton production also uses more chemicals per unit area than any other crop + accounts in total for about 10-16% of the world’s pesticides (including herbicides, insecticides, and defoliants). The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classifies nine of the most common pesticides used on cotton as highly toxic and five are considered probable carcinogens. Ew. I definitely don’t want anything to do with that! It’s my belief that anything that touches my skin should be as safe, toxin-free + healthy as possible, so why not when it comes to cotton, right? To be honest, we really don’t know how much of these toxic residual chemicals end up on finished products, but they may irritate your skin. I have no desire to take any chances, and I definitely don’t want anyone to be harmed in the growing + production of something I use to remove my makeup. Plus, if it’s something I can change in my life (that will help me + the farmers) for just pennies more, why not? For more info on toxins + pesticides in US Cotton, check herehere + here.  The only downside is that the Cotton Rounds don’t seem to be stitched very well + fall apart. I’ve noticed this with a few other organic brands as well though. I wonder why it’s only the organic ones? Hmm. Other than that… I would totally purchase these again! Thanks Whole Foods Market! xo.
