Micro Powders, which produces advanced micronsied wax technologies, has launched its new biodegradable exfoliant technology, Bioscrub, commercially.
The patent-approved product meets all environmental requirements of current and proposed microbead legislation. Produced from naturally derived polyhydroxybutyrate powders - classed as readily biodegradable in both marine and freshwater environments by OECD standards - via a fermentation of sugars, Bioscrub combines the performance of polyethylene beads with broad biodegradability.
“The need for microbead alternatives with the same feel as polyethylene beads remains one of the most active trends in the market,” said Deena Strauss Kornblau, CEO of Micro Powders. “Bioscrub is a great solution."
Bioscrub is available in a range of particle sizes to meet formulators’ needs.
