Cruelty/Paraben free, but not environmentally friendly.
on February 12, 2014
I like the way the product works. It works like an average facial scrub. I bought it because it was paraben free, and cruelty free.
It contains Polyethylene though. Polyethylene is about to be banned in products like these where I live(NY) due to the negative effects they have on the environment.
The item claims to have Jojoba beads which aid in scrubbing, but the ingredient Polyethylene precedes Jojoba on the ingredient list. That would indicate it actually has more small plastic micro beads, than jojoba beads. These micro plastic beads end up in the water supply once they leave our homes. They then end up being consumed by fish which are part of the food supply. I'd look for something more environmentally friendly. A quick google of polyethylene/environment will confirm this.
