Mikroplast i Minirisk flydende håndsæbe.

Hvorfor? hvorfor kommer man mikroplast i flydende håndsæbe?
I denne flydende håndsæbe fra Minirisk Svanemærket er der Peg-7 som er mikroplast og der er Sodium Laureth Sulfate = SLS, der tilsættes for at give sæben en skummende virkning. SLS er hudirriterende og erstattes i flere produkter med SCS = Sodium Coco Sulfate, som ifølge Hebe Botanicals ikke er bedre. Se uddrag nederst.
Jeg tror, at man kan konkludere at SLS og SCS ikke generer os, der ikke er allergikere, men når det er sagt, er det tankevækkende at flere og flere bliver allergikere!

What Is It? Klide
Triethylene Glycol and other polyethylene glycols (PEG-4, PEG-6, PEG-7, PEG-8, PEG-9, PEG-10, PEG-12, PEG-14, PEG-16, PEG-18, PEG-20, PEG-32, PEF-33, PEG-40, PEG-45, PEG-55, PEG-60, PEG-75, PEG-80, PEG-90, PEG-100, PEG-135, PEG-150, PEG-180, PEG-200, PEG-220, PEG-240, PEG-350, PEG-400, PEG-500, PEG-800, PEG-2M, PEG-5M, PEG-7M, PEG-9M, PEG-14M, PEG-20M, PEG-23M, PEG-25M, PEG-45M, PEG-65M, PEG-90M, PEG-115M, PEG-160M, PEG-180M) are polymers of ethylene glycol. The number in the name represents the average number of ethylene glycol units. The letter “M” associated with the number stands for 1000, so PEG-25M is has an average of 25,000 units of ethylene glycol. The polyethylene glycol polymers are used in a wide variety of products including bath products, shaving products, skin care products, makeup, skin cleansing products, shampoo, hair conditioners and deodorants.


"In summary: sodium coco sulfate contains SLS as a predominant component, with all the concerns that are linked to that chemical. Basically it is just another way to hide SLS in formulations with yet another name. Both sodium coco sulfate and SLS are synthetic detergents and should never be part of any natural cleanser. Natural products that are kind to your skin, and environmentally friendly, will not contain lauryl sulfate, laureth sulfate, coco sulfate or any of the long list of other synthetic detergents.  
Although the marketing term ’coco sulfate’ is used to indicate it is derived from coconut oil it is also made from palm oil. Increasingly people are saying no to palm oil because of deforestation and the destruction of habitats containing rare and endangered species. And certificates of sustainability mean little if the forests continue to disappear.   Unfortunately manufacturers can use palm oils to make products like SLS and SCS without the consumer being aware, and while they may declare there is no palm oil in their products the ingredients they use may have been made from palm oil fatty acids."
