Face Wash and liquid soaps without microplastic
Microplastic in the form of Acrylate copolymer (AC) or Polyquaternium-7 is mainly used in conventional liquid soaps. Consumers are becoming increasingly sensitive to the impact of their cosmetic products on the environment.
With a product such as liquid soap, which is used several times a day, enormous quantities of liquid microplastics are released into the environment, the effects of which have not yet been researched.
The liquid plastics are currently classified as not hazardous to the environment, but so far not much is actually known about the duration and the impact of these substances on wildlife.
For those who want to change their consumer behavior, we have put together 5 liquid soaps without microplastic. They come from natural cosmetics manufacturers:
