Infographic: Polymers are not Plastics

Posted by Lubrizol Personal Care Technical Team on 02/11/2019

Lubrizol Personal Care is proud to share the key differences between its acrylate polymers and plastics

Lubrizol supports efforts to curb the harmful effects of plastics on the environment. While plastics are made up of polymers, not all polymers end up as plastics. Lubrizol’s acrylate polymers, for example, are used as thickeners to enhance the performance of personal care products like shampoos and shower gels. Lubrizol believes that it is important to understand the differences between its acrylate polymers and plastics, such as “microbeads,” that have been used in personal care products. Compare the differences between polymers and plastics in the forms, uses and impacts they have on the marine environment and see how Lubrizol is dedicated to delivering sustainable ingredients for next-generation beauty products.
