She added, “In terms of soil and water contamination, the effect of beauty products is profound as every skincare product is eventually washed off to be discharged into the soil or water. Effluent treatment plants seldom can degrade some components especially if they are not biodegradable or they combine with other ingredients to produce compounds that cannot be broken down easily. Such ingredients eventually accumulate in soil and water and turn them toxic and nonviable.” (cottonbro)

Becoming conscious and aware and turning to clean beauty is best thing one can do to save the environment.” (olia danilevich)
