Cleans­ing wipes soften up with su­per­food in­fu­sions.

The in­tro­duc­tion of dis­pos­able wipes in 1960 ush­ered in a new beauty era that al­lowed women to freshen up on the run. But while they’ve re­mained one of the more prac­ti­cal prod­ucts a woman can have in her hand­bag, they’ve only re­cently been up­dated with so­phis­ti­cated for­mu­la­tions and star in­gre­di­ents.

To­day’s cleans­ing wipes boast a va­ri­ety of gen­tle, rinse-free cleans­ing agents and an­tiox­i­dants, such as green tea, caf­feine and aloe vera, while those con­tain­ing char­coal tar­get deeper im­pu­ri­ties.

Far from harshly re­mov­ing make-up, these one-hit won­ders are more del­i­cate than previous ver­sions, ex­plains Linda Rid­dell, Na­tio’s na­tional trainer.

“The in­fu­sion of nat­u­ral botan­i­cals like chamomile en­sures skin isn’t stripped of es­sen­tial mois­ture. Qual­ity wipes re­move im­pu­ri­ties while ef­fec­tively car­ing for even del­i­cate skin,” she says.

Both pop­u­lar­ity and va­ri­ety in the mar­ket has surged at 10 per cent, with wipes now able to soothe, bal­ance ph, ex­fo­li­ate and mat­tify skin, and even act as a vi­ta­min-c in­fused bright­ener.
