How does it work?

Explanation

Which products contain microplastic ingredients and which not?

In the search engine above, you can filter by country and colour to find out which products still contain microbeads or microplastic ingredients and which are free of them. Many NGOs around the world are helping us by maintaining a data sample for their respective countries. The designation of the ZERO logo, however, is solely under our supervision. 

If you want to learn more detail about microbeads & microplastics in cosmetics, have a look at our ‘Guide to Microplastics.’

Products on this list contain “sceptical microplastic” ingredients. By “sceptical microplastic” ingredients we mean synthetic polymers for which there is not enough information available. Some indicate toxicity to human life, some to aquatic environments, and for others, we cannot find enough information. These include but are not limited to Polyquaterniums, Polysorbates, PEGs, and PPGs.
