This glitter should be used sprinkled on top of soaps or in other general applications. Using this inside soap batter is NOT recommended, although the manufacturer states it's okay up to 120 degrees celsius or 250 degrees fahrenheit. If the soap batter is very alkaline, it may severely damage the glitter.

BENEFITS OF COSMETIC BIO-GLITTER®
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 EXTRA COMMENT
- 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.
I just love glitter and this one is beyond my expectations.
Like sparkling stars
I like the size of this bio glitter. It’s larger and sparkles brilliantly.
Im in love with that glitter! So Gorgeous
I love using this glitter. It looks beautiful on my soaps
