What is LastSwab made of?

The swab ends are made of the rubber-like material TPE, and the rod is made of plastic reinforced with glass fiber. The case comes in two versions and is either made of the plant-based material PLA, or of recycled ocean-bound plastic.

Why not just use paper and cotton ones?

Paper and cotton swabs impact the environment because they are single-use. The average person goes through hundreds of cotton swabs each year. These cotton swabs get produced, warehoused, shipped, purchased, used, and discarded. During this process, the use of raw materials and the CO2 created are harmful to the environment. These processes become unnecessary when you commit to using reusable products like LastSwab.

How do I clean the Beauty LastSwab, and can I use it in my beauty salon?

LastSwabs are easily cleaned with water and a little soap. The Beauty LastSwab can be cleaned with a little makeup remover if it’s been used with waterproof makeup. If you use the Beauty LastSwab in a beauty salon or as a makeup artist: Always remember to clean it thoroughly with warm water and soap between customers, let it dry, soak it in alcohol sanitizer, let it dry, now it’s ready for your next customer.

Can I use LastSwab for nail polish removal, art projects or instrument cleaning?

You can generally use a LastSwab as you would use a single use swab, but keep in mind that LastSwab is not heat resistant and you can not use it with solvents such as acetone or non-acetone nail polish remover.

How many single use swabs does LastSwab need to replace to be better for the environment?

It only takes 36 uses (so about 5 weeks) to become a better option than single use swabs in terms of carbon footprint.

Where is LastSwab manufactured?

We have two LastSwab manufacturers, one is located in China and one is located in Denmark. We only work with non-EU manufacturers that have SMETA (ethical audit) certificates.

Sturdy, easy to clean, reusable!

Love this reusable swab - it's a fun color, easy to use and clean, and is made of sturdy material. The bumpy surface helps with waxy build-up, but since the swab isn't absorbent, it doesn't help with post-shower water (or earbud-induced moisture) in ears - for that, I wrap the swab in a [reusable] tissue! I'm so glad to have this sustainable, reusable option to replace single-use cotton swabs! I also loved that I was able to toss the simple paper packaging straight into my compost pile!

I love a product that is well made, useful and makes me feel good about purchasing it. Bought an extra one to carry in my purse for touch up emergencies. This beauty swab is better because it doesn’t get all raggedy in my bag and it stays clean in its case.

Love it

I was skeptical at first but decided to try it after a year of not buying cotton swabs for sustainability reasons and not replacing them with anything. It feels like a lovely ear massage and totally makes my ears feel clean! Washing it is a cinch, I just use a little diluted Dr. Bronners that I refill our hand soap pump with and dry with a terry cloth towel.
