Likely Global Ban On Plastic Microbeads Presents Business Opportunities For Makers Of Alternative Ingredients

April 6, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
As governments worldwide move towards banning the use of plastic microbeads as ingredient for personal care products, business opportunities are opening up for manufacturers of alternative ingredients. North America, which according to Euromonitor International data accounts for 20 percent of global consumption of polyethylene in beauty and personal care products, introduced legislation banning microplastics from rinse-off cosmetics in 2015. Europe, which accounts for almost 50 percent of PE consumption in BPC products, has yet to introduce similar legislation. Leading BPC companies have been exploring alternative to microplastic beads and deal with environment-related issues.
