Q-tips Cotton Swabs are made with 100% pure cotton and have 50% more soft cotton at the tip than any other swab. The firm paper stick gives gently under pressure, while a special adhesive secures the cotton to the stick. Q-tips Cotton Swabs are ideal if the task requires a soft touch. There is no softer or safer swab. Q-tips Cotton Swabs are made with 100% natural materials, unlike some other cotton swab brands and are biodegradable when composted.
