Get ready for big changes in skin care products. As one of his last acts of 2015, President Obama signed a bill that bans an ingredient so common that nearly every American home has a product that includes it- plastic micro beads.
Found in body washes, facial scrubs, and soaps that serve as skin exfoliants, these tiny beads do not break down as they wash down the drain and end up polluting the waterways. Many companies have begun replacing them with natural, biodegradable ingredients like apricot seeds, powdered pecan shells, and rice.
Our products by Caren and Glo Minerals do not contain micro beads and are environmentally safe.
