We were so shocked to hear from our friends at 5Gyres that a dangerous ingredient is hiding in many of our toothpastes, face scrubs and personal care products. The sneaky ingredient is plastic microbeads — you heard it right, tiny bits and pieces of plastics. Not only are these beads harmful to the environment, when they get washed down the drain, they are harmful for our health. Confusing right? Lucky for you, 5Gyres has a video that explains it all.
