Unilever to phase out 'microbeads'

March 2013

Unilever is to phase out the minuscule plastic ‘microbeads’ used in its facial scrubs and exfoliators in a move welcomed by the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) and the North Sea Foundation. The tiny particles cause long-term environmental damage to the world’s oceans and natural ecosystems. Unilever, one of the world’s biggest makers of cosmetics and bathing products, says it will complete the phase-out from all its personal care products worldwide by 2015.
