About Clean Towels

In the beginning stages of product development, we stumbled upon one particularly interesting study about towels: research conducted by Charles Gerba- a microbiologist at the University of Arizona. According to Gerba, bathroom towels carry an incredible amount of bacteria. Due to the environment they hang out in (your bathroom), towels offer the perfect scenario for bacteria and other microorganisms to grow. Gerba says he found that nearly 90% of bathroom towels were contaminated with coliform bacteria and about 14% carried E. coli. 
             “So, just think about it. You wash your hands and you dry it in the towel and then maybe you had some ecoli or salmonella on there and they get into the towel. It's wet. It's moist. They grow. You may start out with a few, but in a few days you've got millions is what we found out. After about two days, if you dry your face on a hand towel, you’re probably getting more E. coli on your face than if you stuck your head in a toilet and flushed it.” Gerba states in his study. 

 

Of course, bacteria is existing everywhere in our lives, and in many ways 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 enough to make us cringe. 

     

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. Then we got your feedback. Multitudes of people coming back and telling us they saw incredible changes in their skin and fell in love with the product.It didn’t take long for the Clean Towels to become a staple in many skincare routines. It was the one thing that we were missing, without even realizing it. Now we had a better grasp on Clean Towels and felt confident with the help of all our amazing customers. 

 

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 officially that the Clean Skin Club was becoming complete.
