It is a hot topic in all media: At least since Mr. Obama, the American president, adopted the law end of 2015, it is on everyone´s lips: polyethylene in the daily life cosmetics is not only dangerous for the environment; it also is harmful for humans!
At least since numerous detections of micro plastics in the human food cycle (e.g. in fish stomachs, honey and milk) have been made, cosmetic manufacturers are more and more under surveillance.
Unfortunately, microplastics and microbeads are still to be found in
our daily life cosmetics. The resulting damage upon environment and wildlife is
a well-known fact. Due to
their specific density, the beads do not sink down in the sludge but directly
find their way into our rivers, lakes and oceans.
In December 2015 the law was officially adopted: Manufacturing of products containing plastic microbeads is prohibited from July 1, 2017 on. Introduction or delivery for introduction into interstate commerce is prohibited from July 1, 2018 on. (link auf Gesetzesentwurf)
Day by day, the demand for a green alternative is getting stronger. The substitution for the PE beads is not only expected to be optically and haptically equivalent, but also should be moving in the same price range whereas being easy to process. With his range of Cellulose Scrubs offers JRS a perfect solution and THE alternative to plastic microbeads.
