Industry Challenges UK Microbead Ban While Awaiting Larger EU Plastics Strategy

Executive Summary

Draft legislation in the UK would ban plastic microbead in all rinse-off cosmetics, not just those for exfoliating and/or cleansing purposes, and prohibit the manufacture of such products even if they're intended for export to countries without microbead restrictions. Industry has lodged an objection to the proposal with the European Commission, which is developing its own plastics strategy, slated for release in December.
