According to the recently published UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme) report a total amount of 4360 tonnes of microplastic beads were used in 2012 across all European Union countries plus Norway and Switzerland (survey by Cosmetics Europe).
Apart from the environmental argument that most of the plastic ingredients are non-degradable and may take hundreds of years to completely degrade; the concern on the toxic effects of such particles on biological organisms is coming more and more into focus.
 
CFF GmbH & Co. KG is a German manufacturer and global supplier of natural & bio-degradable cosmetic ingredients from cellulose. Our exfoliating scrubs are pure cellulose granules which are obtained during a particularly gentle production from different natural raw materials like bamboo, wheat, oat or corn.
According to their abrasive structure SENSOCEL® exfoliating scrubs are a sustainable and effective alternative to microplastic beads. The particles are available in different sizes of 50 microns to 800 microns. SENSOCEL® cosmetic ingredients from bio-degradable raw-materials allow gentle exfoliation and skin protecting cleansing effects in peelings (e.g. shower gels, facial cleansers) and in toothpaste by protecting the dental enamel and dentine.

CFF supports any attempts to expand the global awareness of this topic and welcomes the joint call of several nations to the EU environment ministers to ban microplastics in cosmetics and detergents. It is our aim to intensify our research and development for further  bio-degradable alternatives to microplastics in cosmetics. We are looking forward to an animated discussion and exchange of information.
