Microbeads are non-biodegradable, tiny plastic particles, that pose a serious threat to the environment, especially marine animals.
Referring to the study, Toxics Link said next time when people clean their face with a scrub or facewash, they should think twice, as they might be contributing to the dwindling fish population.
The new study, "Eco Personal Care Product, Microplastics in Cosmetics", was carried out to investigate the presence of microbeads in personal care and cosmetic products (PCCP) available and sold in India.
