Microplastics refer to microscopic particles of plastic that are found in a large majority of cosmetics. They are commonly used in products designed to exfoliate or scrub (these are known as Microbeads) but can also be found in deodorants, sunscreens, shampoos and make up.
Hardly visible to the human eye, these forever polluting plastics are used in products as a thickening agent at a very low cost to the manufacturer. Shockingly, in some cases, microplastics can make up to 90% of a product.
When these products are used, just one shower alone is thought to send 100,000 microplastics down the drain and into the ocean, causing serious harm to marine life and our planet.
So, all in all, Microplastics are a big no no, for us humans and for the environment.
