Microbeads are really tiny plastic particles usually smaller than two millimetres. The composition of microbeads can vary and often include polyethylene (PE) or polypropylene (PP), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polymethlyl methacrylate (PMMA) or nylon. Microbeads are added as an exfoliating agent to cosmetics and personal care products, such as soap, facial scrub and toothpaste.
