Which products contain microplastic ingredients and which not? Here is the list:  Beatthemicrobead.org

Tiny particles of plastic have been added to thousands of personal care cosmetic products sold around the world. These microbeadsplastics, hardly visible to the naked eye, flow straight from the bathroom drain into the sewer system. Wastewater treatment plants are not designed to filter them out microbeads and that is the main reason why they contribute to the Plastic Soup swirling around the world’s oceans.

Microplasticsbeads are not biodegradable and once they enter the marine environment, they are impossible to remove.
