Microplastics are tiny pieces of plastic that are found in a variety of products, including skincare.

Microplastics can penetrate the skin's surface and cause irritation, inflammation, premature aging, and clogged pores

Microplastics can also act as carriers for other harmful chemicals, such as heavy metals and phthalates.

Microplastics are a major environmental pollutant that can harm marine life and pollute beaches.

To remove microplastics from skincare, choose products that are labeled "microplastic-free", avoid products that contain certain ingredients, use natural exfoliants, and support sustainable brands.
