The product works but the main action takes place because of the salicylic acid. The microbeads just end up in our oceans and in the stomachs of wild fish, and eventually eventually end up in bigger marine animals such as penguins, dolphins and whales. Several states are already planning of banning these microbeads so hopefully Clean and Clear just takes them out voluntarily. But don't let that stop you from buying this (sans the microbeads). Again, the main mechanism of this product is the salicylic acid and this one works.
Yes, I'd recommend this product
