WHAT WE SAY:
Microplastics are between 0.05 and 1 millimetre in size, but nanoplastics are even smaller and a huge unseen problem. Plastic SunSpheres are only 0.0003 millimetres, and in just one suncare product, you’ll find as many as 100 trillion of these tiny plastic particles, used to boost the efficacy of UVA/UVB formulations.
It would be easy to ignore them – most people have never heard of them after all. But Australian suncare brand SunButter knows we can’t turn a blind eye and is taking action by cutting them out completely. We all know where these toxic nanoplastics end up, and others need to follow this pioneer fast.
