Naturbeads

Every year > 250,000 tons of plastic microbeads enter the oceans contributing to plastic pollution. These beads are used in many applications and fulfil different functions: exfoliant, additives, binders, fillers, film formers etc. The ECHA is now proposing to ban them in all applications (400,000 tons in 20 years, €220M/year).
Naturbeads cellulose beads are the only biodegradable alternative to plastic microbeads in the 1-150 micrometer range with the right properties at competitive price.
We replace fossil-fuel based polluting plastic microbeads with natural and biodegradable cellulose beads
