All of The Body Shop® Body Scrubs contain natural exfoliators, and we currently use polyethylene micro beads in three facial exfoliators; Vitamin E Cream Exfoliator, Vitamin C Facial Cleansing Polish and Tea Tree Squeaky-Clean Scrub.
In 2014 we made a commitment to replace these ingredients with a naturally-derived alternative during 2015, and we are on track to deliver on this commitment. The material that will replace the polyethylene micro beads is classified as biodegradable. We hope that answers your question!
