Sustainable Research | Skincare Product Ingredients
Our products are pure and toxin free; they do not contain parabens, sulphates, or other harmful chemicals.
Animals are our friends; we never test our products or ingredients on animals. Our products are made with all natural, plant-based, and vegan-friendly ingredients.
We are completely ocean friendly and thereby our products do not contain any plastic microbeads...
Sustainable Research | Plastic Microbeads
We have made our Plastic Microbead Policy very simple:
Purity For Men DOES NOT use plastic microbeads in any of our products.
What are Microbeads?
Plastics microbeads are really small particles usually smaller than two millimeters which can be found in personal care products, (face scrubs, body scrubs, toothpastes).
Why are they harmful?
As the particles are washed down the sink, they are not filtered out, meaning billions of micro-plastic particles are ending up in oceans, lakes and water systems.
These microbeads are consumed by marine life which is eventually moving up the food chain and ending up back in our household, but this time they are on our plates.
15 countries have now banned the use of plastic microbeads, however only in rinse off cosmetic products.
What about non-rinse products face creams and body lotions?
During a recent study on a 50ml bottle of face cream, which contains 1.48 million microbead particles, sized between 1.6 and 103 μm, found the particles may potentially be absorbed by our portal veins, may have access to our organs and transfer through our blood-brain and placental barriers. The risk is just not worth it and we believe Plastic Microbeads should banned completely.
