Micro beads come in two forms, either produced synthetically (which accounts for about 91% of the products on the market) or naturally occurring.
Synthetic micro beads are small pieces of plastic are being consumed by our marine life together with the fact that scientists believe they also attract other pollutants such as oil & pesticides.
Humans then eat this contaminated marine life such as fish, ingesting the micorbeads. The synthetic plastic beads are through to release potentially toxic chemicals, which can disrupt the hormonal functions of humans.
Recent studies have shown that fragments of plastic now make-up a significant proportion of the sand of the beaches around the world. Even Zoo plankton a major marine food source, has been filmed eating these tiny plastic micro beads, suggesting the impact on our food chain maybe greater than expected, as the concentrations increase the further down the food chain they are.
