In January, a ban came into effect in the UK which prohibits the sale of body scrubs and face exfoliators which make use of plastic micro-beads. This is a fantastic environmental initiative, with the aim of reducing the levels of waste plastic which make it into the ocean.

To tie in with World Oceans Day this year, we’ve decided to put together a list of some of the best microbead free exfoliating scrubs.
