Microplastics in cosmetics?
|Polyethulen (PE)||film forming, viscosity changing, supports the cleaning effect and increases the gloss|
|polypropylene (PP)||viscosity modifying|
|Polyethylene terephthalate (PET)||film-forming|
|nylon-12||changes viscosity, reduces bulk density and transparency|
|nylon-6||changes viscosity, reduces bulk density and transparency|
|Acrylate copolymer (AC)||reduces the static surface electricity, ensures the binding of cosmetic products, film-forming|
|Acrylates/C10-30 alkyl acrylates Crosspolymer (ACS)||emulsion forming, film forming, viscosity changing|
|Polymethyl methacrylates (PMMA)||film-forming|
|Polyquaternium (P)||film-forming, reduces the static surface electricity|
|Polystyrene (PS)||Viscosity changing, stabilizing.|

- The BUND offers a helpful negative list. It lists the products by name that contain microplastics. https://www.bund.net/fileadmin/user_upload_bund/publikationen/meere/meere_mikroplastik_einkaufsfuehrer.pdf
- The smartphone app Codecheck informs you by means of a barcode scan about all questionable ingredients, based on scientific assessments, tells you if and what kind of microplastic is contained and suggests alternatives. https://www.codecheck.info/so-gehts/start
