BENEFITS OF COSMETIC BIO-GLITTER
Bio-glitter® is based on biodegradable film made from trees, primarily eucalyptus, sourced from responsibly managed plantations.
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.
Bio-glitter® feels more comfortable on the skin.
Bio-glitter® is physically 30-40% softer than polyester glitter.
Bioglitter® being globally cosmetic approved makes it suitable for use in most colour cosmetic applications. Its silky feel makes it a much more comfortably product to wear that traditional plastic glitters.
Suitable for use in nail art, UV nail and water based nail varnish applications. Bioglitter® Sparkle has limited solvent resistance so it’s currently not suitable for use in solvent based nail varnish. However, Bioglitter® Pure has solvent resistance and performs well in this application.
Suitable for use in eye makeup, with heat resistance to over 100oC it is suitable for processing into cosmetic pencils. Less than 150micron rule: The cosmetic industry observes a less than 150micron particle size rule around the eyes, therefore glitter sizes 006 and 004 are suitable for use around eyes according to this rule.
Suitable for use in eye makeup, with heat resistance to over 100oC it is suitable for processing into lip stick and lip gloss. The only exception in lip applications is Bioglitter® Sparkle, it contains aluminium which is not permitted for use on lips in the USA (FDA Cosmetic Regulations).
