From Waste To Wow: The Beauty Sponge Sachet®

Beauty sponges are a must-have in every makeup kit. They are used for applying foundation, concealer and powder. However, cleaning these sponges can be a headache. They need to be washed regularly to remove dirt, bacteria, and makeup stains. The most common methods to wash, dry and store beauty sponges are either gimmicks, introduce more waste onto the planet, are inefficient and not cost effective. Beyond the huge amount of time wasted to maintain them, the hand washing of beauty sponges wastes a great deal of water. Even more when they are hand washed, they are often left to dry in the open air or not stored properly. A wet beauty sponge is the perfect host for both the accumulation and proliferation of bacteria.

The beauty industry is always evolving, and it is no surprise that a solution has been found for this problem. Enter the Beauty Sponge Sachet®, a new product that is changing the current approach to beauty sponge hygiene and maintenance.

Invented by Dr. of Health Education, Joanne Duncan-Carnesciali, the Beauty Sponge Sachet®, is a sachet for packaging, washing and drying cosmetic sponges that eliminates the unnecessary packaging of beauty sponges and solves the problem of beauty sponge hygiene and maintenance.

November 10, 2020, Dr. Duncan-Carnesciali was granted a utility patent for this innovative approach to packaging, washing and drying cosmetic sponges.

The packaging constructed from a three-dimensional technical textile and is treated with the antimicrobial agent ionic silver. This novel packaging approach for beauty sponges inhibits the growth of bacteria on the packaging.

The Beauty Sponge Sachet® is a sustainable solution to the problem of single-use plastic packaging waste in the cosmetic sponge industry. The sachet is designed to be reusable in that it can be used not only to package cosmetic sponges but also to launder cosmetic sponges in an ordinary washing machine and dryer. Not only does the innovative packaging design of the Beauty Sponge Sachet® reduce the amount of plastic packaging that is introduced onto the planet, it saves time, water and money as it relates to beauty sponge hygiene and maintenance.

The textile, used to package the cosmetic sponges is commonly used in the automotive, sports, medical, furniture, fashion and the home décor industries. Due to its unique structure and properties, three-dimensional air mesh is a popular choice for manufacturers looking to provide comfort, breathability, and durability in the products. The features of three-dimensional air mesh are important as damp sponges can harbor bacteria, and can potentially cause serious illness as is evidenced in the research conducted Amreen Bashir of Ashton University in Birmingham, England.

Furthermore, the three-dimensional textile used to construct the sachet is easy to clean. It’s structure, a pair of spaced fabric layers interconnected by monofiliament fibers and treated with an antimicrobial agent, not only allows air to flow freely in and out of the packaging, but it facilitates the drying of the sponges whether the sponges be dried using a standard dryer or left to air dry. This is important because damp sponges can harbor bacteria, which can potentially lead to skin irritations and infections.

Moreover, as beauty sponges are constructed from hydrophilic polyurethane, a material that has a tendency to retain moisture, packaging made from three-dimensional air mesh keeps the sponges in an environment conducive to drying. By providing a breathable packaging solution, the antimicrobial treated textile helps keep the sponges in a clean and hygienic environment.

The Beauty Sponge Sachet® is easy to use. Simply treat your soiled sponges with a stain remover of your choice. Put the pretreated sponges back into the sachet and toss them into your washing machine and subsequently into your dryer. The three-dimensional structure of the sachet/packaging allows for the water and soap to penetrate the sponge, removing dirt and bacteria. Once the sponges are washed, toss the sachet containing the sponges into your dryer.

The packaging of the Beauty Sponge Sachet® also serves as a great approach to storing beauty sponges. The sachet is designed to be compact and can be easily stored in a makeup bag or drawer.

The Beauty Sponge Sachet is an innovative product that is changing the way millions of consumers of beauty sponges maintain their beauty sponges. It is a sustainable, practical and efficient solution to the problem of how to package, wash, dry and store beauty blenders. Further, it’s design reduces the need to use single-use packaging of beauty sponges.

In conclusion, the beauty sponge sachet is a game-changer in the beauty industry. It is a sustainable solution to the problem of single-use plastic packaging, it’s easy to use, and helps to keep cosmetic sponges clean and free from bacteria.

If you are someone who cares about the environment and your skin, then the Beauty Sponge Sachet is a product you should add to your makeup kit. It is not only good for the planet but so good for your wallet.

So why not give it a try and see the difference it can make in beauty routine?
