可如何辨認自己正在使用的產品是否含有膠珠？請查看產品包裝上顯示的成分，如果看見以下任何其中一項﹕polyethylene、 polypropylene、polyethylene terephthalate、polymethyl methacrylate，那就表示該產品含有膠珠了。例如下圖顯示品牌的產品。
To tell if you face or body scrub contains micro beads, look at the list of ingredients. If you see any of these words: polyethylene, polypropylene, polyethylene terephthalate, or polymathy methacrylate, then it contains plastic micro beads.
If you find a product that contain micro beads, but isn’t in our gallery, please email us a photo of the front and back at email@example.com.

Biore 產品包裝上沒有列出成份。香港花王致電回答我的查詢，聲稱biore 產品沒有含膠。美國花王卻給出以下不一樣的回覆:
Thank you for your inquiry. At Kao USA, Inc., we are committed to exclusively using ingredients with well-established safety profiles. We closely evaluate all of our products before we market them. All of our products meet the safety expectations outlined in the US Food and Drug Administration, Health Canada’s Food &
Drug Act, and the European Union’s (EU) Cosmetic Regulations. Biore is currently using microplastic beads in a couple of personal care scrub products. In response to concerns about the environmental impact of microplastic beads, we are working toward removing these ingredients from our personal care scrub products by 2017.
