Unilever, the makers of Dove soap products, announced on December 28th that they will be reformatting their soap and bath products to remove polypropylene beads from their products. Polypropylene beads are in their products to act as an exfoliant. Unilever has made this decision because they feel the beads may cause an environmental health problem. They hope to have this effort completed by 2015. Way to go for being proactive Unilever!!!
