Something has been bothering me about skincare for a long time:
What on earth made someone think that putting tiny pieces of plastic into skincare and toothpaste would be a good idea?
Someone, somewhere literally went: ‘we don’t need to worry about what happens to the plastic after it’s been used because it’ll just wash down the drain’.
Or did they even get that far? Did they just go: ‘our consumers want to exfoliate and we don’t want to waste money, so let’s just use cheap bits of plastic because all our consumers care about is their shiny fresh skin.’
Whatever. For some reason, someone (or rather, a few someones) decided that not only was it ok to do that, but that we wouldn’t notice.
