In recent weeks a number of articles have been published on the dangers of plastic microbeads in cosmetic products eg. exfoliants, shower gels, shampoos. Many cosmetic firms use tiny, less then a millimetre wide plastic beads (often labelled as PP, PE or PMMA in the ingredients) even though there is no reason for that. Microplastics are too small to be filtered by the sewer system and able to carry deadly toxins into animals, endangering rivers, marine life, and the human food chain. What is more, organic pollutants, fat-soluble chemicals such as DDT stick to microbeads and form a super-concentrated ”time bomb”.
And now the good news: Ilcsi’s face and body exfoliators, peelings do not contain microbeads (or any other harmful artificial ingredients), so switch to an organic product recommended for your skin type and make a difference! Instead of ugly plastics, vote for natural abrasives rich in precious active substances: ground-up grape seeds, maize, sea salt, or try our fruit acid peelings for a rejuvenated, spotless skin, a clean conscience, and a cleaner environment.
