Sustainable PE bead alternative
Desert Whale Jojoba Company presents Jojoba Scrubeads, a sustainable and biodegradable response to polyethylene (PE) beads used in beauty products.
This product addresses the growing concern over mounting data showing PE beads may have damaging effects on the environment. The creation of Jojoba Scrubeads comes in response to the call to action from The North Sea Foundation and The Plastic Soup Foundation for cosmetic companies to use natural replacements for PE beads. These beads have been connected to Plastic Soup, vast soupy patches of micro-particles swirling around the world’s oceans that are harming sea life.
Many product manufacturers are supporting the campaign against the use of polyethylene beads in cosmetics and personal care products by searching for alternative, natural replacement ingredients. Desert Whale Jojoba Company offers Jojoba Scrubeads, a natural, affordable alternative to PE beads, created from a combination of castor oil and jojoba wax; jojoba is an oil extracted from the seeds of a desert shrub. Key benefits of Jojoba Scrubeads include: natural polyethylene replacement, softens and smoothes the skin’s surface, accelerates the skin’s natural renewal process, purifies and renews the skin’s texture, and defines and polishes the skin’s appearance.
