Swarfega is Micro-Bead Free

Swarfega manufactures a wide range of hand cleansers, with many containing scrubbing agents that help to clean the skin of technicians, engineers and mechanics across the country.  Most Swarfega products have always been made with natural scrubbing agents such as cornmeal, with only a limited range containing plastic micro-beads.


Swarfega is pleased to confirm that as of November 2017, the manufacturing process for all products is now completely micro-bead free. This outcome is the result of a two-year project in which Swarfega has systematically replaced micro-beads or plastic micro-granules in the production of hand cleansers that previously contained this type of scrubbing agent.
