Stop using dusty tissue paper and switch to charcoal before its too late

Are you using normal tissue and toilet paper? Do you find that the dust never disappears completely after wiping? Do you know that there are dangers lurking behind common tissue paper, the very product supposed to keep you clean and hygienic?

Delaying the inevitable

One of the most common mistakes people make when it comes to tissue paper is thinking that they are 100% safe and cleansed after using. Tissue paper usually wipes away dust and other harmful agents away and not totally eliminating them. In other words, they are ‘pushed’ to another area which means bacteria and germs are still evident around you. Certain types of fiber-based cloth are made to absorb the micro-organisms and can be washed away.

What you don’t know about normal tissue paper

If you have an allergy to dust and micro-organisms in the air, using tissue paper will be one of the biggest mistakes you can make. What you don’t know is that there are harmful agents that are used to produce tissue paper. This includes:

  • Bleach derivatives were used to make the paper fiber although it was not used on the manufacturing process.
  • Some have BPA-elements in recycled tissue paper. While the tissue does not contain BPA, it is what was used to recycle (old receipt paper) contains this harmful agent.
  • A type of additive called Formaldehyde is used to keep the tissue paper together when wet. This has been found to cause chronic irritation in the vulva.
  • Manufacturing of tissue paper means cutting down more trees and is harmful to the environment in the long run.

Enter the charcoal tissue paper

Now that you know how bad common tissue paper is, then you should do something about it. Switch to charcoal tissue paper instead. Charcoal bamboo tissue paper is made without using any form of additional chemicals. It is a 100% natural product which means your skin enjoys its anti-microbial properties. What you want is to reduce the amount of dust (and those that are unseen by the naked eye) around the air you breathe. This will then reduce the allergens that invoke your nose sensitivity.
