A refreshing exfoliating bath with your favourite shower gel, is your bit of heaven every morning...isn’t it? What if it is revealed to you that Most of your favourite body care & beauty brands, are playing truant...adulterated with plastic? Heartbreaking, almost like a partner caught cheating!
Noticed the tiny granules in your exorbitantly priced shower gel? They are tiny pieces of plastic used in personal care products, designed to go down the drain and into our lakes, rivers, and oceans — by the billions every day. They are Micro-beads. They absorb toxins in the water, are eaten by marine life, and can make their way up the food chain all the way to our dinner plates, making a single micro-bead up to a million times more toxic than the water around it! Bizarre as it sounds, Could the plastic you’re washing your face with end up in your sushi? Sure!
Found in face soaps, body washes, and even toothpastes, sometimes included in “age-defying” makeup (yes, filling in wrinkles with plastic dust!), as well as lip gloss and nail polish, plastic micro-beads are designed to wash down the drain, they simply won’t break down (not the mention the myriad other issues with bioplastics).
Read the back of your product and see polyethylene, polypropylene, polyethylene terephthalate or polymethyl methacrylate? Chuck the product now...You’re cleaning up with plastic...and contributing to environmental disservice!
Vert says No to synthetic Micro-beads! Giving you reasons enough to renounce everything spurious, It is a movement where health takes precedence...handmade, hand picked ingredients that spell freshness in every single product. O’vert’ly natural!
