ECOLOGICAL BENEFITS –
TICKING THE GREEN BOXES

Ethically and sustainably sourced raw materials.

Craft 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.  Craft Bioglitter utilises our unique and naturally derived colour coatings.

Biodegradability: One goal for all – Certification

Bioglitter™ is designed to biodegrade quickly and safely in natural freshwater environments.

Ronald Britton Ltd uses TÜV OK biodegradable WATER certification as a simple and clear means of communicating this fact to our customers.  We have taken this approach as terms such as ‘100% plastic free’ and ‘100% biodegradable’ can be used without qualification and don’t necessarily describe the eco credentials of a product.

At Ronald Britton, we believe OK biodegradable WATER certification cuts through the confusion.  Moreover, the ISO 14851/2 tests at the heart of this certification are also specified by ECHA for determination of whether or not a polymeric material is considered a microplastic.

  • Craft Bioglitter™
    • TÜV Austria, ‘OK Biodegradable WATER’ Certified.
      • The highest level of independent certification for fresh water biodegradability in the world
      • Biodegrades quickly and safely in the natural environment

GOES 4X FURTHER –
USING LESS GLITTER ALSO SAVES ON PACKAGING AND TRANSPORT FUEL

UP TO 4 TIMES LESS CRAFT BIOGLITTER NEEDED than glitters typically used in schools and kindergartens
– Similar coverage with up to 4 times less glitter, in other words, the same sized glitter pot will last up to 4 times longer.
– Less packaging = less waste = better for the environment
– Less transport = less fuel = better for the environment

COST BENEFIT – When comparing prices of typical school or nursery glitter ALWAYS FACTOR in that the same sized pot of Craft Bioglitter™ will last up to 4X longer!

PRODUCT SAFETY BENEFITS –
LOW HEAVY METALS MEANS SAFER GLITTER

Craft Bioglitter contains extremely low levels of heavy metals, going far beyond the requirements of product safety standards like EN71 European Toy Regulations.

ENHANCED BRILLIANCE BENEFITS –
DESIGNED TO GIVE MORE SPARKLE!

Craft Bioglitter is designed to give a more brilliant and sparkly effect compared with the plastic glitters typically used in schools and kindergartens.

This is achieved through the way Craft Bioglitter products are formulated and the way its precision cut to minimise dust and ensure smooth clean edges.
