Pros: Great at first, Eco friendly
Cons: Takes VERY long time to biodegrade, scratchy, multiple sheets come out at the same time, wipes dry up after a month in packaging.
I have been using Elements Naturals for a year almost, and I regret the money that I have spent trying to give this up and coming B Corp business the benefit of the doubt. Each package I get has very scratchy wipes, when using it to remove my eye makeup I ended up with microscopic scratches on my eyelids, it was very irritating. When I try to remove wipes from the packaging, multiple wipes dispense at a time, instead of one single wipe per pull. Also the packaging isn't designed very well, the center part of the sealing flap breaks from the rest of the sealing flap destroying the air tight seal on the packaging and leaving me with half a package of DRY wipes. Not to mention the packaging is trash! Why create a biodegradable product and put it in a non-bidegradeable/ recyclable packaging? Now we come to the cherry on the sunday, the wipes take FOREVER to biodegrade. I have a compose bin from my local trash company in my backyard that I have been using for the past 5 years. Before putting them in my compost bin, I cut the wipes into strips, they have not biodegraded in my compost bin for the past year. Banana peels decompose faster than that! All in all I would have to say at $5.99 per 80 count package I would recommend going with a better, less expensive and truly biodegradable wipe such as Walgreens Renew Naturals Baby Wipe 60 count for $2.99 or two packs for $5.00. These wipes display deterioration within a month or two. Don't waste your money on a less superior wipe like Elements Naturals.
