Personal Care or toiletries are consumer products used in personal hygiene and for beautification.

For many years, people from around the world are using personal care products and processes to take care of their skin, hair, and other body parts. This was always important to maintain good hygiene because as humans started to live in societies, we had to be clean to make sure that we are not spreading diseases by not taking simple precautions.

This all started slowly and steadily. People from several parts of the world started observing things one by one. Some observed that washing hands before and after eating food were actually helping them to be away from stomach aches and other food born diseases and similarly it was with these small and minute observations that we have reached personal care like todays'.

Environmental Impact
The environmental effect of pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) is currently being widely investigated. PPCPs include substances used by individuals for personal health or cosmetic reasons and the products used by agribusiness to boost the growth or health of livestock. More than twenty million tons of PPCPs are produced every year.

PPCPs have been detected in water bodies throughout the world. More research is needed to evaluate the risks of toxicity, persistence, and bioaccumulation, but the current state of research shows that personal care products impact the environment and other species, such as coral reefs and fish. PPCPs encompass environmental persistent pharmaceutical pollutants (EPPCs) and are one type of persistent organic pollutants. They are not removed from wastewater by conventional methods.

The European Union has declared pharmaceutical residues with the potential of contamination of water and soil to be "priority substances".
