Ecological Benefits  ECOLOGICAL BENEFITS

Bio-glitter® is based on biodegradable film made from trees, primarily eucalyptus, sourced from responsibly managed plantations.  Cosmetic Bio-glitter® is made from a special biodegradable film derived from sustainable and environmentally sourced wood pulp, produced and harvested to FSC® standards.


Health Benefits  HEALTH BENEFITS

Bio-glitter® contains low levels of heavy metals

Antimony levels in Bio-glitter® are below the limits of detection, effectively zero. Whereas, cosmetic polyester glitter can have antimony levels as high as 150ppm. The antimony in polyester is a by-product of a catalyst used in the manufacture of polyester.


Cosmetic Benefits  COSMETIC BENEFITS

Bio-glitter® feels more comfortable on the skin.

Bio-glitter® is physically 30-40% softer than polyester glitter.


Additional points of interest:

  • No nano particles.
  • Heat, water and oxygen are required for effective biodegradation by microorganisms. Bio-glitter® is metabolised by micro-organisms which transforms it into carbon dioxide, water and biomass.
  • Cosmetic Bio-glitter® is very stable and will not biodegrade on the shelf. Biodegradation will only be initiated in a soil, compost or waste-water environments where micro-organisms are present.
  • Bio-glitter® is Non GMO
  • Vegan and cruelty free
  • Manufactured in the United Kingdom



Cosmetic Bio-glitter® is compliant with the following cosmetic regulations:-


 European Cosmetic Regulation 1223/2009


 FDA Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 21


 Hygienic Standard for Cosmetics, July 2007


 Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare Ordinance No 126 of July 29, 2003.  QD (JSQI) regulation NOT applicable


 Industrial Chemicals (Notification & Assessment) Act 1998 and Cosmetic Standards 2007


 Korean Cosmetic Products Act (KPCA), 2000



  • FDA regulations do not permit the use of aluminium on the lips or mucous membranes.


Antimony levels in Bio-glitter® are below the levels of detection.  Total content analysis by Inductive Coupled Argon Plasma Spectrometry <5ppm, which is the limit of the test. 

Historically the cosmetic industry has made a special exception to Antimony levels in polyester glitter and has allowed levels up to 150ppm.  Compounds of Antimony are used as catalysts during the production of polyester which results in contamination and Antimony levels higher than background.  There is no upper limit to Antimony levels in non-cosmetic glitter!



Bio-glitter® is produced from a special biodegradable film that is:

  • certified to E13432 & ASTM D6400 standards

  • certified a industrially compostable

  • OK Compost Home certified

  • suitable for anaerobic digestion

  • satisfies the requirements of Marine and waste water biodegradable ASTM D7081-05*

  • manufactured from renewable resources and sourced to FSC® or PEFC™ standards

Bio-glitter® is Non GMO.  No genetically modified organisms or materials are used in the process to produce Bio-glitter® and based on information from our suppliers none of the material used to formulate Bio-glitter® are obtained from GMO’s


ASTM D7081-05* - has been withdrawn from official use, however in the absence of any other suitable alternative we feel it still provides a credible measure of marine biodegradability.
