Removing makeup and the inevitable layer of city grime from my face at the end of the day is an important part of my routine. I know that some purists prefer to use coconut oil as a makeup remover, and I’ve tried that route. It always gets in my eyes and makes me feel like I had my pupils dilated at the opthamologist’s office. Not my deal.
The Chamomile Green Tea Eye Makeup Remover by Earth Science came highly recommended by an enthused shopper at Whole Foods, and after using it for a couple months, I’m pleased with the results. It has a gel-like consistency, is fragrance-free, and gets the job done. It even removes liquid and gel eyeliners, which can be difficult to clean thoroughly.
Inside the Ingredients

|Extremely Safe||Reasonably Safe||Proceed with Caution||Insufficient Data|
The scary-sounding disodium cocoamphodiacetate is nothing more than a mild surfactant that comes from the fatty acids in coconut oil. A surfactant is a substance commonly used in cleansers which reduces the surface tension between oil and water molecules. Ingredient #3, decyl glucoside, is another vegetable-based surfactant which is often derived from coconut or corn (or a mixture of the two).
I feel confident in the purity of these ingredients.
