Although both medical cotton swabs and cosmetic cotton swabs are high-temperature sterilized products, they are actually two different cotton swabs.

1, medical cotton swabs

Medical cotton swabs are made of medical absorbent cotton and natural birch wood. The cotton fibers of the cotton swabs should be soft, white, odorless, and free of maculas, stains, and foreign objects. The surface of the plastic stick and paper stick should be smooth and free of burrs, and there should be no stains, foreign matter, wood sticks, and bamboo sticks. The stick surface should be smooth, free from breakage, and free of stains and foreign matter.

2. Cotton swabs

The most common cosmetic cotton swabs are round and oval-headed cotton swabs. In fact, there is a more versatile and better-effect cotton swab on the market-pointed cotton swabs. The oval-headed cotton swabs are of moderate size and are suitable for smudging eyeshadow and correcting the face. Makeup. The pointed cotton swab can be used as a make-up tool for makeup details because of the tip of the head. It is suitable for correcting imperfect eyeliner, wiping off the dirt on the eyelid when brushing the eyelashes, and modifying the lipstick that is drawn out of bounds. , Correct the nail polish on the edge of the nail, very easy to use.

Generally speaking, because medical cotton swabs need to care and treat wounds, they are more stringent during production, and they need to ensure the need for sterilization. They can absorb liquids more easily than ordinary cotton. The main purpose of the cotton swab is to remove makeup. In order to ensure the requirements of makeup removal, its texture is relatively softer. Even if you pour toner on it, it is very comfortable to use, and it can easily clean the makeup.

It should be noted that most of the cotton swabs currently on the market are ordinary cotton swabs. Of course, it is not feasible to clean the wound with a cotton swab, and it is a very dangerous behavior. Because the cotton swab cannot meet the corresponding sterilization requirements, it cannot be used on the wound. If a cotton swab is used to clean the wound, without the disinfection equipment and conditions in the hospital, if it is directly used for wound treatment, it is very likely that the wound will be infected and never healed.
