Lips and Eyes - The Perfect Entry Point for Bacteria
When re-applying your lipstick or gloss after dining, food particles (and their bacteria) can get into your lip product and contaminate it. Lip-glosses with wand applicators are particularly risky; after application, bacteria from the lips can be pushed deep into the base, contaminating the entire product. The moisturizing agents and oils in lipstick formulations can be the perfect breeding grounds for bacteria. Using a Cosmetic Sanitizer Wipe on your lip-gloss wand or tube after each application will help prevent this contamination and ensures that they stay fresh and bacteria free.
Mascara wands hold mascara deep within the bristles, which can hold germs and bacteria that can cause an eye irritation or infection, and make application difficult. Wiping your mascara wand with a Cosmetic Sanitizer Wipe after each application will help prevent bacterial contamination of the entire base tube, and keep your applications clump-free!
How to sanitize makeup: Use one wipe to wrap around lip-gloss, lipstick or mascara wand. Gently wipe from base to tip.
