I know that many who are not in the subject of natural and organic cosmetics,they adore the sea buckthorn series, for their beautiful packaging, a really good smell, almost “perfect ingredients” and for their actions thanks to some non-ideal ingredients. It is positioned as a professional, which undoubtedly attracts attention.

At first glance, a very good ingredients here sparing washing surfactant
Sodium Coco-Sulfate, Lauryl Glucoside , many beneficial extracts and oils, but all this goodies covers several ingredients.. especially this
Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer it synthetic polymer used as a film former in cosmetics and personal care products that has opaque properties, worst of all is it microbeads…
Microbeads, by design, get into hard to reach places and it’s this intrinsic property which is the reason trillions of these microscopic pieces of plastic end up in rivers, estuaries, seas and oceans every single minute of every single hour of every single day as no waste water treatment plant can filter out these pollutants.
As these microscopic bits of plastic are so small, collectively these microbeads have a huge surface area, allowing it to absorb large quantities of toxins, pesticides & other pollutants.
Once in the marine environment, these then become snacks for microscopic plankton; soon enough the big fish eat the little ones, the beads start showing up in the stomachs of larger fish, and filters right through to your dinner plate and inevitably you. Read more information
It is very sad that some companies have not yet abandoned microplastic in their cosmetics. After all, this is a very big problem. But it pleases that some big companies began to refuse this ingredient.
Please check your cosmetics on microbeads and also check your make-up products, especially lipstick, yes you can eat microplastic thanks to your lipstick :
- Polyethylene (PE)
- Polypropylene (PP)
- Polyethylene terephthalate (PET)
- Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA)
- Nylon (PA)
- Polylactic acid
- Polyethylenterephtalat, PET
- Acrylates copolymer, AC
- Polyquaternіum, P
To these words different numbers may be added, this is also a microplastic. They can disintegrate only after a couple of hundred years.. Perhaps we already eat microplastic in our food(which, on the way to our plate, managed to absorb toxins and other pollutants), as it has already been found in water, honey, beer, fish and chicken.
Let’s not chase after the beauty of harming our environment, we have one planet, because in the end it will also harm us.
I wish you all awareness in every step 😗
