“World’s Toughest” Microbead Ban Takes Effect In UK

Posted on 9 January 2018 by Darrel Moore

A UK-wide ban on the manufacture of products containing microbeads has come into force today (9 January) – a “landmark step” in the introduction of one of the world’s toughest bans on these harmful pieces of plastic, according to Defra.

Environment Minister Thérèse Coffey has announced that manufacturers of cosmetics and personal care products will no longer be able to add tiny pieces of plastic known as “microbeads” to rinse-off products such as face scrubs, toothpastes and shower gels.
