Microbeads

Microbeads are solid plastic particles of less than one millimeter in their largest dimension, usually made of polyethylene but also polypropylene and polystyrene. They can be found in exfoliating personal care products or toothpastes. L’Oréal no longer uses plastic microbeads as cleansing or exfoliating agents in its wash-off products.
