Cotton buds should not be used to remove earwax as this can cause permanent deafness. If you or your baby are suffering from itchy or painful ears you are advised to visit your doctor rather than try to fix the problem yourself. Ignoring the warning and using cotton buds risks perforating the eardrum, causing bleeding and temporary hearing loss. Wax is actually a beneficial self-cleansing mechanism that contains protecting antibacterial and lubricating properties. Therefore, it should not normally be removed and naturally migrates out of the ear canal itself, helped by the chewing motion of the jaw.

About Simply Gently
Macdonald & Taylor were the first UK manufacturer to gain Soil Association accreditation for its range of organic cotton wool products. Very toxic pesticides, fertilisers and herbicides are used in the farming of conventional cotton, amounting to 25% of global pesticide consumption. These not only cause considerable damage to farming communities and the environment, but also leave residues on the finished product. All Simply Gentle Organic products are 100% organic and follow strict guidelines as laid down by the Soil Association.
