Cosmetic Bio-glitter® is based on biodegradable film made from trees, primarily eucalyptus, sourced from responsibly managed plantations.
Cosmetic 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 Bio-glitter® feels more comfortable on the skin.
Bio-glitter® is physically 30-40% softer than polyester glitter.
