Okay so you know those little “microbeads” in your hand sanitizers, liquid soaps, toothpaste, body wash, and most notably, facial scrubs? So yeah those are actually rEALLY SUPER BAD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT!!! 
These beads are really tiny (think less than a millimeter in diameter) as they’re meant wash down drains and because of this they don’t get captured by sewage treatment and they can’t be filtered out of the water. As a result they end up in our lakes and oceans, waiting to be swallowed by some poor fish, potentially poisoning them or becoming lodged in their digestive tract.
Not only do toxins added to the plastic during manufacturing leech out, these beads also attract and absorb toxins in the water resulting in high concentrations of POPs (persistent organic pollutants) on their surface. This isn’t just bad for the fish, it’s bad for everyone in the marine foodchain, which includes us. These toxins will only become more potent as they’re passed up the foodchain (biomagnification). 
Microbeads have been found in the guts of fish and other seafood regularly consumed by humans. You wouldn’t eat your face wash, so why are we producing personal care products that end up in our food?
These beads are found in hand sanitizers, toothpastes, body washes, facial scrubs, exfoliates, soaps. In toothpastes and hand sanatizers they’re merely decorative and serve no other purpose. In exfoliates, washes, and soaps they can scratch skin and even get wedged into pores causing infection (ouch and ew!).
Stop buying products with microbeads! If you want an exfoliant, you can find scrubs made with pulps, sugars, sea salt, or other natural exfoliants. Or you know, just use a wash cloth.
