Is your Body Scrub Bad for the Environmnt?

Posted Jan 16 2013 10:04pm

If you use a body scrub which contains plastic beads, then you should be aware that they are very bad for the environment.

The polyethylene beads which are scrubbing the skin, are actually a form of plastic. Because they’re plastic, the beads don’t break down when they go down the plug hole and they even absorb nasty chemicals in the process. When they head out to sea, they actually  the ocean and marine wildlife. Our advice? Go for natural body scrubs instead, which us salt or sugar to slough away dead skin cells.
