Washing your face is pretty straightforward, right? You wet your face with water, apply a dime-sized amount of facial cleanser, and gently use your fingertips to wash away dirt and other impurities. But, did you know that even the best cleanser is only achieving half of the cleaning your face needs?
Therefore, we created a list of beneficial reasons why you should start washing your face with an organic cotton muslin cloth.
10 Benefits of using Muslin cloths
6. Reduces Inflammation - when you exfoliate it stimulates the lymphatic system & improves blood circulation in the area. Doing this regularly helps calm inflammation, puffiness and redness.
7. Dry quickly - due to their open weave which prevents any bacteria growing. Very beneficial if you suffer from acne or eczema. Also makes it great for travel.
8. Provides Deep Cleaning Effect - the tightly-woven fabric that whisks away dirt, impurities, and excess oil.
9. Effective on cleansing the skin - they have a gentle exfoliating action that helps remove impurities and leaves your skin feeling clean and smooth.
10. They can be used with any product - the versatility of muslin cloths means you can use them to remove all types of cleansers, exfoliators, masks or any other wash off product
Great for sensitive skin - some scrubs and exfoliators can aggravate hyper delicate skin, so the muslin cloth can provide the perfect alternative.
Cost Effective and Environmentally friendly - the effectiveness & softness of the cloth improves over time and it’s a great step toward a green, eco-friendly skincare routine.
Increases collagen production - exfoliating breaks down skin cells removes dead particles resulting in an increase of collagen production.
Gently exfoliates - because they are so soft you can get a thorough but gentle exfoliation
Multi-purpose uses - use as a cold compress because it’s so soft and absorbent, the cotton actually pulls the heat out of your skin and into the cloth. Other uses: ingrown hair remover, eczema or keratosis pilaris body exfoliator, great for chapped lips, facial steaming and more!
What Are Muslin Cloths?
It’s not just for swaddling up babies! Many people don't really know what muslin cloths are!
They can be a game-changing exfoliating alternative! They help you remove daily dirt, SPF, makeup and skincare products in a gentle and calming way. Organic cotton is also safer to use on the skin, as no pesticides were used to grow it. Skin is less likely to feel irritated or aggravated and instead feel harmonised and fresh.
Muslin is a soft, woven, 100-percent cotton multi-layer cloth popular for baby cloths and blankets because the fabric is so gentle and absorbent, and it gets better and softer with more use. Also great for stubborn stains, nut milk strainer, even shining shoes!

Our muslin cloths are 100% Organic Cotton Cleansing cloth, double-sided. You can use the textured side for gentle exfoliation, and the soft side for patting dry.
