Beauty products with plastic micro-beads that are in a lot of exfoliating products also contaminate the water and poison fish. It's been shown that Neutrogena's Deep Clean contains approximately 360,000 micro-beads in one tube

I wonder why women use it anyway. We don't need it.

Neutrogena is made by Johnson&Johnson, a company which conducts cruel animal testing. I only use cruelty-free products, which are much more likely to be environmentally-friendly. Thanks, Cher.

Just Dr. Bronner's. I was so disappointed to find out that my old go-to, St.Ives, is no longer cruelty-free.
