Nagua solid cosmetics were created for perfect personal care while helping to preserve the environment! Our materials are natural origin. This means that by using our solid cosmetics you will not be releasing plastics and micro plastics into the marine environment.
In addition, Nagua’s solid cosmetics are perfect for helping to reduce plastic packaging! After all, our packaging does not contain plastic and is sustainable.
Using Nagua’s solid cosmetic line has many advantages. Know some of them:
A study published by Frontiers in Marine Science revealed that there are at least 14 million tons of plastic in 3 kilometers of ocean depth. Microplastics are the main responsible for these numbers. But what are microplastics?
Microplastics are those tiny plastic particles that pollute our seas and oceans. They have a diameter between 330 micrometers and 5 millimeters. They are the result of plastic dispersion in the environment. This is because these plastics dissolve into smaller fragments due to a variety of causes. From the effect of ultraviolet rays to wind, waves, microbes and high temperatures.
Microplastics can also come directly from our faucets by washing textiles with synthetic fibers, the use of products with petroleum-based ingredients, some cosmetics with dissolving agents or toothpaste, etc.
These fragments end up in the food chain of marine life, ingested and accumulated in the bodies and tissues of many organisms. Besides, between 15 and 20% of the marine species we consume contain microplastics in their bodies. And that number rises to 73% when we consider the consume of fish that live between 200 to 1000 meters deep. Therefore, everything ends up on our tables and in our bodies with serious risks to human health as well as that of marine animals.
