California's Nonconforming Microbeads Bill Could Limit Viable Alternatives

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

While industry has lobbied for uniformity in state legislation phasing out plastic microbeads in personal-care products, a bill is gaining steam in California that could bar manufacturers from adopting even biodegradable plastic alternatives due to a broader definition of targeted ingredients. Meanwhile, a House microbeads bill at the federal level has gained a companion in the Senate, but definitions are still unclear.
