MICRO CARE / Ear pick


Ear picks, delicate devices for removing wax from ears, is commonly used in our daily life. For most of the common ones, It is inevitablely to go stick to the eardrum and cause some unimaginable and serious consequence. Therefore, we design a new type of ear pick, we bend the ear pick at the front end of its 23mm, so that it could be encountered when the depth reach to a very distance, which can effectively prevent it going sticking to the eardrum and guarantee the safety of our ears.
