The majority of this company's products do not contain plastic microbeads, or contain 'sceptical microplastics' (synthetic polymers for which there is limited information). Microplastics are not retained by wastewater treatment so end up in the ocean where they contribute to ocean plastic pollution, and are hazardous to sea life. While the effects of microplastics on human health are not completely understood, there are concerns about plastic additives, such as phthalates, which are known endocrine disruptors which are shown to have harmful effects on life.
