Tackle climate change by making sustainable beauty swaps with Ramer Sponges

October 15, 2021 | News

Conversation has been ramping up since the UN’s scientific report on climate change was released in August and major brands from across the globe pledging to improve their sustainability credentials.

The UN chief has said the report “is a code red for humanity” and as we countdown to the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP26, the UK’s leading sponge producer is encouraging us to think about even the smallest changes we can make to protect the planet.

Ramer Sponges, creator of super absorbent and super soft sponge products, can help beauty lovers achieve a green skincare regime by offering its sustainable wet wipe alternatives. Introducing the Cleansing Shammy for Sensitive Skin (£4.99 RRP) and Facial Cleansing Sponges (£3.25 RRP).

Disposable wet wipes are big offenders when it comes to polluting our planet. An astonishing 11 billion wet wipes are used in the UK each year. Not only do these wipes contain polyester which litter our oceans, they are behind 93% of blockages in UK sewers, creating monstrosities known as fatbergs (source: Metro). So how can skincare enthusiasts help? They can switch their disposable wet wipes for the Ramer Cleansing Shammy for Sensitive Skin.

This handy little shammy removes all traces of make-up to gently cleanse the skin and is perfect for applying cleansers and lotions. Its smooth surface will leave the skin feeling fresh, glowing, deeply cleansed and radiant.

For those who prefer a smaller sponge, the Facial Cleansing Sponges could be just the ticket. Available in handy twin packs, these sponges have a soft and textured surface which gently cleanses and exfoliates the skin. Unlike other facial sponges, Ramer’s innovative product features a slightly larger pore size which grips make-up residue and dirt when cleansing. Ideal for use after a night out or simply as part of your daily skincare routine, these sponges are easy to hold and so quick to use.

After rinsing in warm water, both products can be left to dry. All Ramer Sponges products harden as they dry, helping to prevent the growth of bacteria, and will instantly soften when soaked in warm water. Machine washable at 40o C, the shammy and facial cleansing sponges provide a sustainable solution to wet wipes, enabling users to enjoy a more environmentally friendly skincare routine.

The Ramer Cleansing Shammy for Sensitive Skin is £4.99 RRP and the Ramer Facial Cleansing Sponges are £3.25 RRP. Available now via
