Plastic particles become an important source of marine pollution

in addition to non degradable plastic products, another major source of marine pollution is plastic particles. It is understood that the so-called plastic particles refer to plastic particles with a diameter of less than 5mm, which are mainly broken into small particles by larger plastic materials (such as marine waste) under the influence of ultraviolet light or sand abrasion, At present, it is becoming an important source of marine environmental pollution

in the past decades, the content of plastic particles in the ocean has continued to grow. It can absorb toxic additives such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) or bis-p-chlorophenyltrichloroethylene 3, and working condition alkane (DDT). When it is ingested by marine animals and enters the human food chain, it will threaten human health. Polyethylene particles contained in many toothpastes, soaps, skin scrub products, and body lotions, as well as polyester and acrylic fibers that fall off from textiles during home washing, are the main sources of plastic particles. They usually flow into surface water through waste water and eventually into the sea

recently, the Netherlands called for a ban on the use of plastic particles in personal care products within the EU. The Dutch environment minister claimed that the crisis of marine pollution aggravated by plastic particles was gradually expanding and further driving the local economic development. He proposed to implement a ban on plastic particles, which is also an indispensable testing instrument for scientific research institutions to carry out new material research on personal care products such as toothpaste, body lotion and skin scrub. He also said that he would take the lead in taking action in the Netherlands before the ban was adopted at the EU level, Nonconforming products will be cleared out

under the constraints of resources and environment, it has become a social consensus to practice the concept of ecological environmental protection. It is reported that many nursing products production giants in the industry have accelerated action against the environmental pollution of plastic particles. Unilever has promised to phase out the use of plastic particles as sanding ingredients in personal care products by 2015. Beiersdorf, Colgate and L'Oreal have also taken similar actions, and the trend of prohibition and spread may be far beyond the period of frequent introduction of a series of national incentive policies

as the main export series of cosmetics, nursing products are developing into one of the hot industries with great export potential. Statistical data show that the export of nursing products from Ningbo Inspection and quarantine this month is about 38.07 million US dollars, an increase of 26% over the same period last year. Products include massage cream, bath salt, shower gel, face cream or moisturizing cream

nursing supplies are related to personal health and safety. Due to the high risk coefficient, they have attracted the attention of importing countries, and are often recalled and notified due to unqualified items such as labels, heavy metals, pigments, microbial pollution, etc. The inspection and quarantine department reminds relevant domestic industries to actively reflect and improve: on the one hand, according to the list of prohibited and restricted use in exporting countries, strengthen the standardized acceptance and strict control of raw materials, analyze key production processes and human factors affecting product safety, and improve product supervision and control procedures. On the other hand, we should improve the technological research and development ability of green ecological products, take the brand marketing route, meet the needs of the European Union, the United States and other markets for high-end environmental protection products, and create the core competitiveness of products
