New York could be the first state to stop the incorporation of exfoliating microbeads in face scrubs, body washes and toothpaste, according to reports. Legislation is scheduled to be introduced by Assemblyman Robert K. Sweeney of Suffolk County on behalf of Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman. It would prohibit the sale of cosmetic and beauty products that contain the beads, according to reports.

The reasoning behind the possible ban is environmental. Reports stated that microspheres have appeared in bodies of water and are being consumed by marine life. The New York lawmakers worked with 5 Gyres, a group that fights plastic pollution in oceans, lakes and rivers.
