Microplastics in Cosmetics: How bad is the problem?
Let's talk about something that affects us all, even if we don't see it: microplastics in cosmetics. These tiny, sneaky particles have found their way into our everyday personal care products and pose a silent threat to our skin and our planet. And for now, they are still legal.
What are Microplastics, and why should we care?
Microplastics are tiny plastic fragments that are increasingly common in our environment due to the disintegration of larger pieces of plastic. These microscopic plastics are also added to products, from scrubs to shampoos, without our knowledge. The irony? While trying to take care of ourselves, we are actually harming our skin and the natural world around us.
Why are Microplastics a problem?
Microplastics pose a double threat. First, they can cause damage to our skin. The tiny, rough particles can damage our skin barrier and cause irritation. What we find even worse is that these particles enter our waterways via our water systems, where they endanger the oceans and biodiversity.
