Microplastics: the dossier

Microplastiques : le dossier

They are part of the long list of controversial cosmetic ingredients… Polymers, microbeads, and, by extension, all microplastics are in danger of being banned, or severely restricted, in cosmetic products. And it is not the risk they would pose to health (as covered by the Cosmetics Regulation 1223/2009) that puts them at risk, but their potential to harm the environment (notably under the REACH Regulation) when they are released into the wastewater circuit, and ultimately into natural aquatic environments. Which ones are concerned? Within what timeframe? From the first alerts to eviction strategies and regulatory evolutions towards restrictions, CosmeticOBS gathers in this dossier all its articles to understand and anticipate the anti-plastic wave, which is sweeping over formulas as well as cosmetic packaging.
