Seaweed-based Cosmetic Microbeads

Team: Seaweed-Based Cosmetic Microbeads

Program: Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Our microbeads are an environment-friendly alternative to polystyrene/polypropylene-based beads that are currently used in personal care products. Made out of seaweed, they degrade during the wastewater treatment process & pose no harm to marine life.
