Do your products contain polyethylene micro beads?

No, polyethylene micro beads are no longer used in any of our products. All of The Body Shop® Body Scrubs contain natural exfoliators.

In 2014 we made a commitment to replace these ingredients with a naturally-derived alternative during 2015, which we fulfilled. The materials that replace the polyethylene micro beads are either natural or naturally derived and biodegradable. This work has now been completed and since the end of 2015 all formulas are being made without the use of polyethylene mcrobeads.
