Germany’s Worlee Cosmetics Launches Castor Oil Based Exfoliants

In Germany, Worlee Cosmetics has developed castor oil based WorléeBeads HCO, which can be used as a cosmetic rinse-off product, replacing PE and PP plastic micro particles as an exfoliant. The product is designed for exfoliation in rinse-off products such as facial scrubs, body scrubs and shower gels.

Due to their low particle size, plastic micro particles (100 – 500 μm) used in cosmetic applications can pass through filter plants and finally end up in great quantities in the oceans and from there to marine life and finally into the human food chain. Plastic micro particles finding their way to landfill may still be potentially harmful for decades due to the very slow decomposition of plastics. The concentration of the toxic, carcinogenic and hormonally acting substances caused by these plastic micro particles will only increases over time and the total risk and impact on humans and the environment has yet to be realised.

WorléeBeads HCO hence offers a safe and environmental friendly alternative.
