During this time of year, the Intrinsics team loves to take a step back and consider all of the wonderful things we have to be thankful for! This year, we wanted to highlight how thankful we are for our lifeline: cotton!
It’s no secret that we are thankful for Mother Nature and all the things she has to offer us. And it’s true, we wouldn’t be who we are without the humble--but strong and versatile--cotton plant. But what are some reasons we’re thankful for cotton?
We mentioned earlier that cotton is extremely versatile, making it the ideal fiber for so many types of products. Whether it’s going into medical products like surgical gauze or spa products like Intrinsics Cotton Wipes--cotton can be made both hydrophilic (loves water) or hydrophobic (repels water), so you can be sure it will do its job well.
You can bet that cotton is the popular choice amongst fibers due to its eco-friendliness! Since cotton is a product of the environment, it will biodegrade completely after it’s finished being used. In spa and salon settings, single-use products are a necessity. But when you’re using 100% cotton products, there’s no worry about waste! Because you are left with the peace of mind knowing it will return to nature.
In the past, we’ve discussed why every eco-friendly salon should be using cotton. A big part of this is because it’s the most sanitary option. Keeping a clean and sanitary workspace is a plus for both the professional and the client. Because we all know that cleanliness equals return customers! And explaining to your clients the measures you take to guarantee their safety during their services will leave them feeling satisfied.
