Why Use Biodegradable Cotton Buds

Over the years, there have been several campaigns on the need to look for eco-friendly materials as alternatives to plastic and other materials that affect the ecosystem. Because of this, many countries are placing a ban on the use of plastic for cotton buds to limit the number of plastic cotton buds that end up in the oceans and seas every year.

Biodegradable cotton buds are the best thing that can happen in limiting the number of plastic items that end up in the oceans and landfills. There are several reasons why our world will benefit from using biodegradable cotton buds. Read some of the reasons below:

  1. “Go Green” Support

Biodegradable cotton buds support the “go green” campaign that aims at reducing the acts that can damage or affect the environment. By using biodegradable cotton buds, you are supporting keeping the environment safe for everyone by using eco-friendly products.

  1. Free from Toxins or Allergens

Biodegradable cotton buds do not contain any harmful chemicals or toxic materials. They are made from natural materials, which make them free from chemicals that can become toxic or poisonous. Also, they are not allergens, which makes them safe for everyone. Besides, when they are being destroyed, they do not release harmful chemicals into the atmosphere.

  1. Save Energy

Biodegradable cotton buds are made from natural materials. As a result, they require less energy for production, unlike plastic cotton buds and other non-degradable materials. Producing biodegradable cotton buds involves the use of half of the energy needed to produce plastic cotton buds.

  1. High-quality and Strong

Biodegradable cotton buds are not only safe from the harmful materials, but also they are of top quality, durable, and versatile. You can use biodegradable cotton buds for diverse purposes without any adverse effects. You only have to ensure that they are not flushed down the toilet.

  1. Cheap

The production of biodegradable cotton buds is usually cheap due to the materials that is why they are more affordable than the plastic cotton buds on the market.

  1. Safe Disposal

Biodegradable cotton buds do not cause any danger to health or nature. However, they should be disposed of in organic compost responsibly. During the disposal process, the cotton buds will not cause any harm to man or animals.


Saving the environment is the collective responsibility of all and sundry. Place an order for biodegradable cotton buds to help keep our planet safe for human beings and animals.

What Is Contact Dermatitis?

Contact dermatitis is a type of eczema that is caused by contact with a substance someone is allergic to. Although temporary, it can cause itching and redness which makes the skin very dry and inflamed.

Once whatever is causing the contact dermatitis is removed from the skin, the problem usually clears up very quickly on its own. If itching or soreness is particularly severe, there are various treatments that can help.

What kinds of things can trigger contact dermatitis?

There are many different things that can bring about contact dermatitis but the most usual ones are:

  • Soap and other toiletries
  • Hair dye
  • Perfumes and cosmetics
  • Latex rubber
  • Some cleaning products like detergent and washing up liquid
  • Poison ivy, poison sumac and poison oak
  • Nickel (often found in fashion jewellery and belt buckles)
  • Certain skin lotions
  • Citrus fruit, especially the peel

Symptoms of contact dermatitis

Contact dermatitis usually makes the skin become blistered, itchy, cracked and dry. People with lighter skin may find it appears red to look at, and in darker skin people it may appear purple, grey or dark brown.

This reaction typically starts within a few hours or days of exposure to the thing that caused it. Any part of the body can be affected by symptoms, although it’s usually seen on the face and hands.

Dermatitis - Wikipedia

What treatments are available for contact dermatitis?

If whatever is causing your contact dermatitis can be identified and avoided, then symptoms should get better fairly quickly. Within a few days or so, your skin should also start to heal completely.

If it’s very hard or impossible to avoid the trigger, there are a number of treatments you can try to help ease symptoms. These include emollients (moisturisers), which can be applied to the skin to stop it becoming dry, or steroid cream which can be prescribed by your doctor.

Attack of COVID-19 in Polluted Regions

Coronavirus is currently spreading its terror in all countries around the world. The name of this virus is self-explanatory. You already know quite enough about the Coronavirus, also called Wuhan or China virus so going into its biochemical and scientific details is not mandatory for now. We see that how this virus has successfully shut down every aspect of economy-running directions which in a matter of few weeks. Many countries have been severely affected with death toll being revised in news bulletin of every other day.

Coronavirus attacks the respiratory system of human body. The prime target of Coronavirus is the lungs where gaseous change takes place between the alveoli and blood. Once the functioning of this site is compromised the entire respiratory system becomes too fragile to work without any external aid. The risk of damage to the normal functioning mechanism of respiratory system is much higher in individuals who live in countries with high air pollution. They breathe in the air which contains toxic particles and fumes that make the respiratory tract work abnormally. Since it is the respiratory system which is mainly affected by Coronavirus therefore under circumstances of intense air pollution the risk of getting infected with Coronavirus and dying from it increases.


Scientists claim that it is already a well-known fact that air pollution brings the risk of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome. (ARDS). This pandemic wave started in the start of 2020 whereas air pollution is a traditional practice and observation going on since many decades. With each passing day, the air pollution became more and more severe. According to a research analysis conducted by Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health in Boston, an increase in special type of particle called PM2 by 1microgram/m3 results in 15% more deaths due to Coronavirus. Therefore, scientists have openly informed the public living in cities with high rate of air pollution to protect themselves against it.

A study explains that air pollution causes failure of first line of defense, cilia, in the upper respiratory tract. In such condition, whichever pollutant or infective agent enters the tract causes chronic respiratory condition. The entire world is experiencing a situation of lockdown except some cities. Due to minimum human exposure to nature and minimum running of factories, industries and vehicles the air pollution is drastically declined leaving a favorable impact. Once the lockdown ends the air pollution will strike back making the conditions favorable for Coronavirus.


In patients of Coronavirus, the functioning of lungs is impaired.  As mentioned earlier, lungs contain alveoli which are a site of gaseous exchange. Many times the oxygen levels drop which worsens the condition of patient. In such condition, they can use oxygen supplements. These supplements contain oxygen which ensures proper and sufficient supply of oxygen to all cells of patient’s body. Insufficient and improper supply of oxygen can cause hypoxemia which makes the patient tired and breathless. All those people who reside in cities where air pollution is too high they can use oxygen supplements if they observe symptoms of Coronavirus.
