Can You Dump Makeup Down the Drain?

Can You Dump Makeup Down the Drain?

Is it time to dispose of your old beauty products? You might want to think twice before dumping them down the drain. Lotions, soaps, and cosmetics that go on your body might seem safe, but they can be potentially toxic and cause plumbing problems. Here are a few beauty products you should keep out of your drains.

Cosmetics to Keep Out of the Drains:

  • Coconut Oil
  • Lotions
  • Moisturizer
  • Hair Gel
  • Shaving Cream
  • Cream Foundations

When in doubt, we recommend avoiding disposing of any kind of cosmetic in your bathroom sink or shower drain. Even soaps, detergent, shampoos and toothpaste can eventually clog your drain. Read more about why you shouldn’t dump makeup down the drain here
