About Biodegradable Glitter

WHAT MAKES Bioglitter® ECO?
Bioglitter® replaces the core polyester film used in traditional glitter with a unique and special form of cellulose from hardwoods, primarily eucalyptus sourced from responsibly managed and certified plantations operating to PEFC™ www.pefc.org standards. This core in its own right possesses excellent eco-credentials, in it being biodegradable in all environments; certified industrial and home compostable, approved soil, wastewater, freshwater and marine biodegradable.
GREENWASHING to WATCH OUT FOR!
With the rise in popularity of biodegradable glitter there are many companies jumping on the bandwagon. However a lot of them are selling misleading products. Some glitters are labelled as biodegradable, however they are made from Polylactic Acid (PLA), this material only biodegrades in an industrial composting machine so is the same as wearing plastic when used on the skin.
WHY THE BIOGLITTER® LOGO IS IMPORTANT
As true Bioglitter® stockists we are allowed to use the Made with Cosmegtic Bioglitter® logo on our website and packaging. This logo is how you know you are purchasing true independently tested Biodegradable Glitter.
Biodegradable glitter comes in six different sizes. As it is a cosmetic grade a lot of the sizes are smaller than conventional glitter. Our chunky is probably what you would expect standard craft glitter to be, our biggest size - ultra chunky is great for bold festival and party looks, whereas our finer blends made with the standard and fine hexes are best for nail and more precise make up looks.
All EcoStardust glitter has been approved safe for cosmetics by EC Regulation 1223/2009 and FDA Title 21 CFR. We recommend that customers use caution when using any glitters near their eyes. Although not specifically specified within any cosmetic regulations, the cosmetic industry applies a self-imposed limit of maximum 150 microns (006 size) to cosmetic particles used around the eyes. Our Ultra Fine Glitter is .004 size and our Fine Glitter is .006 size.
