Zand - ground olive kernel hand cleaner

Plastic microbeads are widely used in face and body exfoliation products, but have faced criticism in the press recently because they are polluting water and endangering aquatic life, besides presenting problems at water treatment facilities. As a consequence, and very recently, the use plastic microbeads will soon be banned in the US in a number of States and some cosmetic companies are already phasing out of production.

Zembra is developing a sustainable biodegradable alternative (Zand), where mechanically fractionated olive stone / kernel fragments are milled to an appropriate size. This represents an obvious and timely replacement in the form of natural, biodegradable and non-polluting olive kernel microparticles.
