We're all familiar with performance ingredients in skin care like antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, fruit enzymes, green tea, caffeine, aloe, and more.

The most important benefit we sought here was moisture. Many skin issues (acne, redness, dryness, fine lines) stem from lack of moisture, and we found that none of the face wipes we tried really truly moisturized.

We loved the idea of something simpler, no spray, no powder. Our inspiration was a sponge: how do we just remove the things we don't want? Once we found and tested the hemp + charcoal paper, we knew we had a winner. Charcoal is naturally detoxifying and removes sweat, residue, and oil.
