One Skyn started with three questions: Why do we have to use disposables in our daily makeup routine ? What exactly are we putting on our skin and what impact does it make to the environment ?
These are the questions One Skyn was founded on.
Hey! It’s Anjan here and I’m the founder of One Skyn.
I am a firm believer that our world doesn’t need more products — what it does need is better and effective solutions to the existing problems.
So I set out to create a considered solution to what I saw as some major issues around the beauty regime and the planet.
At One Skyn our goal is to reduce the waste created by everyday disposable wipes and cotton rounds and our mission is to provide healthier and more sustainable beauty products.
At the same time, at every step, we balanced quality, sustainability, usability and design.
So let’s break it down:
Problem: An average makeup wearer uses approximately 700-1000 disposables cotton rounds in a year which all ends up in the landfills and takes years to breakdown, out of which some don’t decompose at all.
Solution : Think of how much less we’d be emptying our bins if we weren’t chucking a cotton round away every time we apply our toner in the evening. Less cotton rounds thrown away equals less cotton rounds going straight to landfill. We had to come up with a solution which is better for our wallet as well as for our planet. Our reusable makeup remover pads can be reused and washed up to 200 times and thus saving a lot of waste going to our landfill.
Problem: Disposable cotton rounds and wipes are not 100% Biodegradable.
Solution: Our Bamboo reusable makeup remover pads are 100% biodegradable and made with the softest bamboo fabric which is known to be the most sustainable resource on the planet.
Our Microfibre pads are sustainable as they are reusable up to 200 times. Made with the softest fabric and are completely safe to be used on all skin types including allergy prone and sensitive skin.
Problem: Millions of disposable cotton rounds and wipes are thrown out each year.
Solution: At One Skyn, we believe that self-care and selflessness go hand-in-hand and empower us to reduce our collective impact on the environment, just as we care for ourselves, we believe in caring for the world around us and that small but meaningful steps can drive true change.
So, Join us in our endeavour to save our planet and make a conscious buying decision.
You have the power to change the world.
Join the Green side today and Don’t Refuse to Reuse.
