Violet Cleaner Beauty


Light technology to kill common microbes in makeup kits

Every year, the beauty industry produces 120 billion units of waste in the form of makeup kits, and there is no solution to prolong the life of the makeup itself. Besides, it’s estimated that up to 90% of makeup products are ridden with e-coli, staph infection, and other dangerous microbes making it unsafe to use after the expiration date.

Violet is a set of makeup cleaning tools that create healthier products for makeup users, while also preventing waste and environment degradation. With its innovative UV light technology, Violet low-cost devices clean makeup of over 98% of microbes, making it healthier to use for longer, without affecting any of its cosmetic properties.
