What kind of towel do you use to dry your face?
A body towel, face towel, or bleached-white washcloth? Seems fine, right? See the problem is, whether you just washed your towel or it's been sitting in your bathroom for a few days- towels can harbor a lot of bacteria and build-up from dead skin, detergents, and makeup. Unfortunately even with the help of detergents and hot water, your washing machine does not eradicate these particles. Consequently, your towel is never fully clean and can easily cause or worsen acne, irritation, and hinder recovery for those with skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis. This is why the Clean Towels are Dermatologist Tested, Approved, and Recommended.
The Research That Inspired Clean Skin Club
In unpublished research done by microbiologist Dr. Charles Gerba at the University of Arizona, he found that 90% of towels in his study were contaminated with coliform bacteria, and 14% contaminated with E. coli. Given the nature of a towel's composition and the environment they spend the most time in (your bathroom), they create an excellent breeding ground for bacteria to multiply. Only two days after starting his study, Gerba found the bacteria count exploded exponentially. Susan Whittier of Columbia University Medical Center even expressed concern that towels can contain and spread MRSA bacteria.

All variations of the Clean Towels are made of 100% eucalyptus or bamboo viscose (depending which version you choose). To make the Clean Towels, eucalyptus or bamboo is harvested from managed plantations, then broken down into chips that are then washed and cleaned. The chips are dissolved (turning them into viscose), and then sent through a spinneret which produces the soft, cellulose fibers. This fiber is then stretched and pressed, turning them into Clean Towels. The finished product is an ultra-soft and absorbent facial towel. The more you know!
