Currently, microbeads used in cosmetics and other personal care products such as skin cleansers, shower gels, and creams are made of plastics such as polyethylene, polystyrene, and polypropylene. However, plastic microbeads are harmful for the environment as they are non-biodegradable. They also affect marine animals. Countries such as the US have banned the usage of plastic microbeads as per the Microbead-Free Waters Act of 2015. Stakeholders are replacing plastic microbeads with sustainable materials that are biodegradable. The different materials used are fruits pits, nut shells, and polymers of natural origin such as polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA).
