Plastic microbeads are found in cosmetic and personal care products, as well as domestic cleaning products. They are the teeny tiny beads seen in your bodywash, face scrub or kitchen cleaner that are too small to be filtered during waste water treatment processes and are adding to the growing volume of microplastic pollution in the world's oceans. 

Microbeads are not only harmful to marine animals, but are a health risk to us as they are passed along the food chain.

To make it easier for consumers to navigate the sea of products, Fauna & Flora International has created The Good Scrub Guide. Read more and download this excellent guide via the below link!
