    I think for all intents and purposes, Plastic microbeads are rapidly on their way out. Not a big deal as we have numerous other alternatives and I expect to see more as the distributors see this as an opportunity for new materials.

    @PharmaSpain these are laws within individual member states; the European parliament itself has not yet passed any union-wide amendment

    I recall this started to be flagged 1-2 years ago, and suppliers have slowly but surely been phasing them out of their catalogues since then
