Clean & Clear - STOP USING MICROBEADS IN YOUR PRODUCTS

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


Microbeads are tiny plastic particles that are used in beauty products. Their main use is to scrub your skin. Microbeads are also called Polyethylene (PE).

Microbeads when used on skin is the equivalent to injecting plastic into your pores. Some people claim to have sensitive, rough, raw skin but don't know that it's the products that do it. It is also a form of nanotechnology. Nano tech is actually really good however it is the thing they use in weather proof paint, stents, etc. So the same technology used in something to paint your house is used in your facial cleanser.

"Microplastics have a damaging effect on marine life, since marine animals often mistake them for food. They are passed along the marine food chain and since we as humans are ultimately at the top of this food chain, it is likely that we also eat them. Also plastic particles are not biodegradable and once they enter the marine environment, they are impossible to remove. Hence the tiny particles ultimately contribute to the plastic soup swirling around the world’s oceans." http://www.beatthemicrobead.org/

We need your help to tell Clean & Clear and their producer Johnson & Johnson to follow other skin care brands and stop using Polyethylene (PE) in their products.

Clean & Clear products that contain microbeads:

  • Blackhead clearing cleanser
  • Morning burst - skin brightening facial scrub
  • Morning burst - oil free facial scrub
  • Deep action in-shower facial
  • Morning burst - shine control facial scrub
  • Deep action exfoliating scrub

Fill out a complaint form to Clean & Clear expressing that you will not be buying their products if they continue to add microbeads. https://www.ccc-consumercarecenter.com/UCUConfiguration?id=a0758000004NIaB
