Resum

This PhD Thesis aims to analyse the environmental path of microplastics in their different aspects. In order to achieve this goal, the Thesis has been divided into four chapters that study this cycle: how emission into the environment is produced from one of the most accessible sources for citizens, which is cosmetics and personal care; what happens when these particles reach the coast and what factors influence their distribution and accumulation; how microplastics in aquatic environments interact with other frequent pollutants that are present; and finally, what behaviour can be expected if people ingest microplastics contaminated with some of these substances.
