Qosmedix, a supplier to the cosmetic, skin care, spa and salon industries based in Ronkonkoma, NY, continues to expand their EQO-Friendly category with a collection of Biodegradable Cosmetic Sponges. The sponges are made from sustainable ingredients including corn husk and corn powder, which contribute to their taupe color and natural, earthy appearance.

Through testing, these sponges have proven to be 44% biodegradable, which allows users to reduce their carbon footprint and lessen impact on landfills,” claims the company.

Customers can choose between a 40-piece rectangular block or a 100-count bag of loose wedge sponges.

According to Qosmedix, both types of sponges perform as well as regular cosmetic sponges, seamlessly blending liquid and cream products into the skin. “These are also a must-have for hygienic makeup and skincare application and are often used in a retail setting for shade matching purposes,” adds the supplier.

With a minimum order quantity, customers can customize the packout or print a logo on the bag.

In an ongoing effort to promote sustainability, Qosmedix is donating 1% of profits from the sales of their EQO-Friendly product line to The Nature Conservancy’s Plant a Billion Trees program, which helps restore forests around the globe.
