Q. Why won't the polymers in Thumbs Up contaminate waterways and why is that important?
A. Microbeads have become very popular in hand cleaners, but the truth is, many are so fine they cannot be filtered out by water treatment plants. These particles end up in your drinking water, and are consumed by local fish and wildlife. Fortunately, microbeads are being phased out over the next year or so, but using Thumbs Up now ensures you are using a safe, effective product that won't contaminate the environment. Our polymers can be filtered out of water supplies.
Q. Do you it the same as other hand cleaners?
A. You only need about a 1/2 teaspoon to clean the dirtiest hands. Rub as normal and rinse with water. Even though it might feel gritty, the polymer scrubbers won't hurt your skin.
