QUANTIFICATION OF MICROPLASTICS IN PERSONAL CARE PRODUCTS USING NILE RED STAINING METHOD AND CONSUMER SURVEY OF UNDERSTANDING MICROPLASTIC EXISTENCE IN THESE PRODUCTS

Microplastics found in personal care products and cosmetics have been assessed as one of the sources of plastic pollution in marine environments. However, microplastic research is quite limited in

Considering the persistence of microplastics in the environment, the high concentrations measured at some environmental sites and the prospective of strongly increasing concentrations, the release of plastics into the environment should be reduced in a broad and global effort regardless of a proof of an environmental risk.

Microplastics in the seas

Microplastics are likely the most numerically abundant items of plastic debris in the ocean today, and quantities will inevitably increase, in part because large, single plastic items ultimately degrade into millions of microplastic pieces.
