Say no to microbeads

Protect the environment by scrubbing up naturally!

January 2016 saw Barack Obama sign a law to ban the environmentally-damaging microbeads still so commonly used within today’s beauty industry. Now there are suggestions from UK Parliament members that the UK will follow this ban too. With reports claiming that 8 tonnes of plastic end up in our oceans every year* risking the lives of marine life and our ecosystem, it has never been more important to seek alternative natural options.

Westlab body scrubs are made of 100% pure salt and natural plant oils to help you ditch the microbeads and embrace the power of the magic mineral, magnesium.

For over 60 years microbeads have been used within scrubs and cleansers, but now more than ever before, UK salt specialists, Westlab, encourages the use of natural alternatives. Westlab’s Body Scrubs harness the powerful quality of magnesium, naturally found within salts which helps to soften and soothe the skin. The salts within the scrubs then simply dissolve into bath water, releasing their mineral goodness and a refreshing natural scent, without the risk of harming the environment.

The fruit essences, herbs and plant oils packed into Westlab’s Body Scrubs can completely rejuvenate the way the body feels, revealing beautifully refreshed, healthy-looking skin. Key ingredients include mineral salt crystals to deeply cleanse, juniperberry to detoxify, rosemary to stimulate and geranium to balance the skin. By exfoliating 2-3 times a week with the scrubs, dead skin cells are buffed away, further encouraging cell rejuvenation for softer, smoother skin, without the use of microbeads.
