Microbeads are POLYETHYLENE microspheres that are used in the skin care and personal care industries predominately as exfoliants. In our opinion, this is an antiquated approach to sloughing off dead skin. We have shared on many occasions our belief of using products containing AHA’s and BHA’s (alpha hydroxyacid and beta hydroxyacid) to deal with this issue including the use of electrical modalities (i.e. Clarisonic and/or similar devices). The biggest problem with products containing microbeads is the affect these products have on our environment. Please check out the video below and rethink any future purchases!
