Hello Everyone. Back again this week to discuss a topic everyone has been exposed to (whether you are aware or not)…. Microbeads! For some of our readers that are not aware as to what micro beads are here is a simple explanation. Microbeads are tiny plastic spheres that can be found in shower gels, facial scrubs, and even toothpaste. They are mostly designed to exfoliate and remove dead skin. Sounds great right? WRONG! They may seem harmless and insignificant, but collectively trillions are being washed into our sewers and polluting our rivers and oceans every day. They are not biodegradable and can have a strong effect on marine life such as contaminating water and killing fish! These small particles of plastic pollute the water and end up staying in the respiratory tract of fish, turtles, and other animals. In place of these microbeads we use natural ingredients such as coconut bark & passion fruit seeds, in our Shower Gels, Facial and Body Scrubs (http://bit.ly/1LegADA) that give you a much better exfoliation and removal of dead skin without harming our bodies and our planet. We encourage all of you to download the Beat the Microbead App so you can check your products for microbeads and opt for a healthier option.
