MICROBEADS IN YOUR PERSONAL CARE PRODUCTS

Microbeads are synthetic polymer particles manufactured to be in the size range of >0.1 µm – ≤5 mm for a specific purpose and application. It has been found in

personal care products such as in scrubs, bath products, baby products, lotions, and sunscreens, etc. 


Microbeads are considered pollutant agents in environmental. Multiple studies have shown that microbeads can also adsorb pollutants from the environment and desorb them in the organism like fish, mussels, and several types of zooplankton which microbeads can transfer across food-webs.

HS Science Class this week with Bu Rahayu and Pak Abid have done a test to see the presence of microbeads in body care products.
