Moving Away from Microbeads – Environmentally Friendly Exfoliator Alternatives

A reader shared this interesting infographic with me, and I thought I would spread the information about the environmental impact of polyethylene microbeads in exfoliators.

I personally have moved away from exfoliators with microbeads not only for environmental reasons, but also because they are much too rough for my sensitive skin. Ever since I discovered enzyme peels, I have forgotten that nasty, burning sensation and flaking for several days afterwards that I experienced after using exfoliators with microbeads or apricot kernels.

You can find a list of common exfoliators that contain microbeads by following this link.
