MicBeads Bio-Based Micropowder

MicBeads from Bioweg are sustainable alternatives to plastic microbeads for personal care and cosmetic applications.

Micropowder is used for scrubbing and exfoliating. However, the synthetic microplastics used in these additives are a serious cause of pollution, contamination, and potential health problems.

Unlike conventional synthetic microbeads, Bioweg’s MicBeads are produced from cellulosic bacteria (100% bio-based) and are readily biodegradable.

They can be customized for different personal care applications and impart performance properties for cosmetic formulations, such as mattifying, better spreadability, and high oil absorption.
