P&G removing PE microbeads from its Crest brand toothpastePosted on September 19, 2014 by DrRossH in Plastic Waste News
Polyethylene microbeads get most of their hype and negative press from their presence in face washes. Their gentle exfoliating abilities made them all the rage in face and body washes just a few years ago.
But do your teeth need gentle exfoliation? Not likely.
Good to see a wide range of big companies going to phase these out. they could not be a worse product for the environment and the ocean in particular. Very irresponsible.
