In cosmetic and beauty products, microplastic refers to very small, solid pieces of plastic that are used as emulsifying agents or fillers. Microplastics in beauty products often occur in the shape of microbeads. These little pieces of plastic act as exfoliating particles, for example in body or face scrubs.
Nowadays, lots of beauty companies are committed to helping prevent global microplastic pollution and switched to more natural alternatives. Different waxes and starches or other natural compounds are now common exfoliating agents. If you want to switch to a more natural body scrub, you can try our Peace and Glow Creamy Body Scrub, which uses easily dissolvable sugar instead of microbeads.
