Lush Cosmetics Says It Will Make Products Without Microplastics

February 18, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Lush Cosmetics said it will remove all glitter and microplastics from its products. Described by Lush Cosmetics ethics director Hilary Jones as a result of a long process, the decision was praised by marine conservation groups. With more than 50 percent of the plastic glitters still used by Lush Cosmetics concentrated into three long-term bestselling products, the cosmetics company needed to find replacements that would not upset and disappoint loyal customers. Several suppliers have launched biodegradable alternatives to microplastics as they try to deal with the controversy regarding the use of microplastics in cosmetics and personal care products.
