The Rossmann drugstore chain is now using a new cosmetic seal to draw attention even more clearly to micro plastic-free cosmetics.
Anyone who regularly visits the drugstore should know the new cosmetic seal that the drugstore chain Rossmann has now introduced. Micro plastic-free products from Rossmann’s brand will be given the new label “Without microplastics”.
According to the company, around 500 Isana products and 31 Baby dream private label products are to bear the new seal by the end of the year. The seal is intended to give customers who value environmentally friendly cosmetics better orientation when shopping.
Unusual: Rossmann seal also refers to liquid microplastics
Rossmann has been dispensing with solid peeling particles in the products of its brands since 2013. There is still no uniform definition of microplastics. Most micro plastic-free products do not use plastic particles that are no larger than 5 millimeters and are not biodegradable. Rossman wants to change that: The new seal of the drugstore chain includes solid plastic particles as well as liquid, synthetic polymers. It is not yet known to what extent polymers have an impact on the environment.
Rossmann understands microplastics all connections, which are indicated in the “Ingredients” list as follows:
- the word “acrylic”
- the word component “polymer”
- the word component “silane”
- the word component “styrene” or “styrene”
- Polyethylene terephthalate
- Polyvinyl chloride
- Ethylene-vinyl acetate
We think the introduction of the new seal is great and look forward to more sustainable, affordable cosmetics in the drugstore.
