16 Top-Rated Toners Perfect for Every Skin Concern

Your beloved face and body scrubs are about to get a huge makeover: Plastic microbeads have become a legit environmental concern. The short story: Microbeads that go down shower and sink drains wind up in oceans and lakes, where they look remarkably like fish eggs to the marine life that gobble them up. The beads then travel up the food chain to humans. Not great for fish or people.

Big beauty brands such as L'Oréal, Johnson & Johnson and Procter & Gamble have responded by voluntarily phasing microbeads out of their products within the next few years. In the meantime, you can help by choosing face and body scrubs without microbeads. There are plenty of eco-friendly exfoliators featuring biodegradable scrubbing ingredients from apricot kernels to jojoba beads to powdered flower petals. Here are some of the best new microbead-free scrubs and a few of our old favorite products, too.
