ECOLOGICAL BENEFITS –
TICKING THE GREEN BOXES
Cosmetic Bioglitter® replaces the polyester film used in traditional cosmetic glitter with a very special form of cellulose extracted from hardwoods, primarily eucalyptus sourced from responsibly managed and certified plantations operating to PEFC™ www.pefc.org standards. Cosmetic Bioglitter® PURE utilises our new mineral and naturally derived coating.
Ethically and sustainably sourced raw materials.
Completely unique, Cosmetic Bioglitter® SPARKLE is PROVEN, through ISO14851 freshwater testing, to biodegrade into harmless substances in the natural environment.
As we progress along the Bioglitter® journey, products are now becoming AUTHENTICATED through biodegradability CERTIFICATION by the trusted third party standards and certification organisation TÜV.
Cosmetic Bioglitter® PURE is the first glitter to achieve OK Biodegradable WATER Certification, which means it’s guarantee biodegradation in a natural, freshwater environment. Reaching this accolade also verifies it Microplastic Free (EU, ECHA Microplastics Proposal, Jan 2019).
There are two key ecological goals we are driving to achieve with ALL Bioglitter® products;
1. Removing the Plastic; So it’s no longer a microplastic.
2. Certified Biodegradable in the natural environment; So it leaves no mess.
HEALTH BENEFITS –
LOW HEAVY METALS MEANS HEALTHIER GLITTER
Cosmetic Bioglitter® contains low levels of heavy metals and is ANTIMONY FREE.
Cosmetic polyester glitter can have antimony levels as high as 150ppm. Non-cosmetic polyester grades can have significantly higher levels. The antimony in polyester glitter is a by-product of a catalyst used in the manufacture of polyester and can negatively and adversely affect health.
Cosmetic Bioglitter® PURE has the additional benefit of being aluminium free, so it is compliant with FDA cosmetic regulations for use on lips.
