Bioglitter® – Creating a Guilt Free Glitter World!

There has been a considerable amount of news hitting the headlines this season on the hazardous effects glitter has on our oceans and planet so we are now stocking an alternative glitter called Bioglitter®

Bioglitter®, is also referred to as ecoglitter and an eco-friendly alternative to traditional plastic based glitter found in cosmetic products, soaps, shower gels etc. Bioglitter® and has been created to tackle the part of microplastic pollution created by glitter. Completely unique, Bioglitter®, biodegradable glitter, uses plant derived material, primarily eucalyptus tree, as it’s basis rather than polyester so being kind to the environment.

We are an Official Stockist of Bioglitter® so you can be assured of the quality and excellence and meets both FDA and European Commission Cosmetic Regulations. During testing of Bio-glitter it was found that the vast majority of biodegradable content in Bioglitter products biodegraded within just 4 weeks!! This proves that the coatings applied during the manufacture of Bioglitter® do not impair the known ability of its unique core to biodegrade in the natural environment.

Our BioSparkle Range of Bioglitter are :-

  • Biodegradeable
  • Cruelty Free
  • Eco-friendly
  • Cosmetically approved
  • Plastic free, so it’s no longer a microplastic.

  • Glitter Tattoos

Who uses Bioglitter?

Many outdoor music festivals, carnivals, zoos, makeup artists, events and schools now insist that only eco-glitter is allowed to be used at their events!
