Shine responsibly with biodegradable glitter
We all know the wrap on microbeads. Tiny plastic circles that (were) used to exfoliate our delicate skin, washed down the drain and left for our ocean animals to consume, only before being fished, cooked and entering our own beautiful bodies! No thank you.
Now the attention turns to other similarly composed micro plastics that could potentially be even more harmful to both our oceans and ourselves.
Unsurprisingly, glitters popularity has risen dramatically over the past few years. Not only does it make you feel like a walking rainbow, it can also be used as a body paint to power feminism and natural beauty.
The only two downfalls with glitter are finding speckles of the good stuff on your scalp and inside your ears a week after dotting it ever so gently under your eyes and second & most importantly, it’s pure plastic.
'We urge exaggerated, self-decor for all, influencing others to adorn themselves with less judgement, knocking down self-appointed boundaries and preconceived notions of what is acceptable and normal.'
But don’t fret! Someone has already thought of a brilliant alternative of course. BIOGLITZ has created a cellulose based glitter that is derived from eucalyptus trees and is 100% biodegradable and FSC certified. It gives the same reflective effect as its PET competitors AND because it’s biodegradable, you won’t be left with glitter in your hair a week later
You will be seeing a lot more of BIOGLITZ in the coming years too as a number of festivals around the world will be banning environmentally damaging glitter by 2021.
