In the beginning stages of Clean Skin Club, amidst all the research we were doing for product development, we stumbled upon one particularly interesting study about towels. According to research conducted by Charles Gerba, a microbiologist at the University of Arizona- bathroom towels carry an incredible amount of bacteria.
Now they really grabbed our attention. I mean, it made perfect sense after all. Of course, bacteria is existing everywhere in our lives, and in many ways completely necessary for our immunity. However, the thought of all the bacteria living in a bathroom becoming multiplied, then being put back onto your face, around your eyes, nose, and mouth- was sickening. We couldn’t believe that with this information so readily available, why there wasn’t something more sanitary out there.
When we finally made the Clean Towels, we were totally unsure of how things would go. We were officially pioneers on uncharted territory. We knew what we had was great, but we didn’t fully realize what kind of product we had on our hands. It didn’t take long for the Clean Towels to become a staple in a customers skincare routine.It was the one thing that people were missing, without even realizing it. Eventually we took to social media and watched everything unfold simply through word of mouth and the power of sharing with others. Not only did this help us fully embrace our new creation, but also the community we were gathering across the nation, with such a diverse group of people in all age groups. We felt finally, that the Clean Skin Club was becoming complete.
