MICROPLASTICS LAST FOREVER
We all love a chunky, iridescent glitter, but if you stop and think about where those tiny (or not so tiny) pieces of plastic end up when they're washed off your faces, you'll realise its as bad as microbeads (now banned) finding their way to our oceans.
Most glitter is PET based, meaning it is a microplastic and very damaging to our environment, particularly as it is often mistaken for food and fatally ingested by marine species. It is very toxic and working its way into the food chain, with devastating effects not only for sea life, but it poses a threat to humans too.
A plant based biodegradable glitter, where everything from the glitter to the packaging is virtually plastic-free and zero waste, with each shade named after one of the most endangered species in our oceans.
Our original hand-blended mixes combine the finest to the chunkiest grains for the most eye-catching shine. Our newest grain is five times the size of previous blends, meaning there is no excuse for any of you chunky addicts not to make the switch to a more sustainable product.
Our glitter is made from a biodegradable film, which is derived from sustainable and renewable raw materials such as rayon & glycerin (plant derived). It is certified marine & waste water compostable, and vegan friendly, meaning it is much safer for the environment, animals and our oceans.

Heat, water and oxygen are required for effective biodegradation by micro-organisms, which are found in soil, compost or waste & marine water environments. Biodegradable plastics are metabolised by micro-organisms, which transform the bioplastic product into carbon dioxide, water and biomass. The timings vary depending on conditions, but this process is thought to take about 70 days.
Our product is currently 92% biodegradable - this is due to the coating which gives the glitter its shine, making up a plastic & aluminium content of 8%.
Microplastics cause the death of thousands of birds & ocean species every year. It is suspected that by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in our oceans - and its never disappearing.
