Plastic: The Hidden Beauty Ingredient

Plastic Soup Foundation released a study called “The Forgotten Synthetic Polymers”. It is a scientific document that addresses the hazards of microplastics that have so far been exempt from legislation. The document shows that the definition of microplastics used by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is far too narrow. New legislation is currently being drafted regarding the intentional use of microplastics to all kinds of products, such as cosmetics, detergents and fertilizers. If this legislation is based on the restricted definition, many types of plastic will escape the new regulations.
