Makeup Remover Recall: Another Reason to Keep it Simple

[ 0 ] January 22, 2009 |

Next time you stay at a Holiday Inn Express hotel, you may wish to steer clear of the hotel’s moist towellete labelled “”.  The company that makes this product, Celeste Industries, says it has voluntarily recalled this product from hotels in Canada and the U.S. after some towelettes tested positive for a bacteria that causes eye and respiratory infections as well as dermatitis and a host of other infections.  Because this makeup remover is intended for the eyelid there is a strong possibility that a tainted product could cause a serious infection.

At the risk of seeming preachy, this is yet another reason for adopting a more natural approach to skin care such as using olive oil on a cotton pad to remove makeup.  If the oily residue left behind is bothersome, simply use a mild cleanser afterward.

The company says no illnesses have been reported as a result of these findings.  The moist towelletes are not sold directly to the public.
