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.

PRODUCT SAFETY BENEFITS –
LOW HEAVY METALS MEANS SAFER GLITTER

ENHANCED BRILLIANCE BENEFITS –
DESIGNED TO GIVE MORE SPARKLE!
