There’s been some coverage in the news regarding Micro-beads and the damage that they do. We want to reassure you that SOAK Yourself products do not contain these potentially harmful beads.
There are a number of cosmetic products such as shower gels, facial scrubs and toothpastes, that contain these tiny plastic beads, to make them more abrasive. Microbeads are often so small that they can’t be picked up by filters at a sewage plant and end up out in the ocean where they become coated in toxins.
Aquatic organisms mistake them as food and in turn bring the toxins into the food chain.
At SOAK Yourself, we use natural ingredients such as oatmeal, salt and seeds as exfoliants.
