I recently bought a facial scrub from The Body Shop and have been using physical exfoliators for years, but recently have been unhappy with the results and the damage they do to the texture of my skin. A couple of months ago I made the move towards muslin cloths and facial loofas as an alternative. After seeing this video I’m so glad I did. I’m saying no to microbeads and micro plastics.

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to share this great video by Lush about how plastic microbeads in our facial scrubs are affecting not only living organisms, but also compromising our ecosystems altogether.

What can we do? Stop our consumption of scrubs that contain plastic microbeads. Opt for scrubs that contain jojoba beads, or finely milled sugar or salt. If you’re not a scrubs sort of person, a face cloth or wash cloth do double duty as an exfoliant as well.

We’ve got many options. Let’s work together to protect our ecosystems, the world we live in.
