When Lena Chao, a woman driven by her sustainability needs, couldn’t find a personal care brand aligned with her values, she embarked on a personal mission. Her journey led her to create reusable facial care products that are ethically and responsibly sourced and celebrate diversity, sustainability, and culture through a beauty lens. Lena’s story is a testament to the power of one individual’s commitment to making a difference. 

As the daughter of a first-generation seamstress, Lena Chao had an intimate understanding of the textile industry’s intricacies. This knowledge, coupled with her unwavering passion for sustainability, led her to develop Clean Circle’s reusable bamboo products. Lena’s commitment to transparency and sustainability is not just a statement but a practice. She spent a year rigorously testing different fabrics and questioning manufacturers’ practices. This meticulous process ensures that Clean Circle’s reusables are an alternative and a reliable and sustainable choice over single-use makeup wipes and cotton rounds.

Using responsibly sourced konjac plans, GOTS organic cotton, and OEKO-Tex-certified bamboo fabrics, which are also tested for harmful chemicals, Clean Circle’s Reusable Makeup Remover Pads, Reusable Skincare Pads, and Konjac Facial Sponges are gentle on your skin and the planet.

Clean Circle’s commitment to sustainability extends beyond its products. The brand takes pride in its conscious packaging, using 100% cardboard and printing with ink made from renewable resources. They have eliminated plastic tape, opting for water-activated paper tape that’s 100% curbside recyclable. As a member of the Eco-Alliance program, Clean Circle works with suppliers that share their vision of creating sustainable packing materials. The brand is dedicated to carbon-neutral shipping, ensuring that every step of its process aligns with its commitment to the environment. 

The dedication to sustainability doesn’t stop there. Clean Circle is committed to carbon-neutral shipping and has pledged to donate 1% of annual sales to environmental organizations as a member of 1% for the Planet
