PURE was 1st LAUNCHED 2019
I opened my shop that year & imported the best glitter I could. Read below for info & facts. I find being transparent is BEST when it comes to YOU choosing what to purchase & knowing the truth of what you are buying. That's why I advertise everywhere that it's the PURE range, as the are other ranges & many false glitters trying to claim they biodegrade, but simply - to what extent??
How do you know what you're actually getting if they don't fully divulge that info openly, shops say 100% biodegradable, but they aren't. Me as a responsible importer & seller of Bioglitter™ PURE (which includes: natural, opal & vivid colour ranges) also now the NEW Bioglitter™ HOLO. Wants YOU to research the colours, info, facts & differences - so YOU know what YOU are GETTING
Even though I'd love for you guys to purchase from me, I am wanting to share the info, so you can SHARE what you have & be KNOWLEDGABLE, when talking to your clients or friends xx Rach
I'm a LISTED LICENSED SELLER / STOCKIST on the BIOGLITTER™ website & I've SIGNED paper work to give me permission to USE their LOGO.
Any queries please do ASK!
NOTE FROM THE MAKERS:
Did you know that the words “Bioglitter”, “Bio Glitter” and “Bio-glitter” are trademarked to Ronald Britton Ltd – The manufacturers of Bioglitter™?
Because of this we respectfully ask that companies do not use these terms against products that are not ours. This is just one way we are trying to help consumers differentiate between Bioglitter™ and other “eco friendly” glitters available on the market.
If you have brought glitter from me in any form - a big hug from me & thank you for supporting my small business, it really does mean the world & making my dream come true. Glitter facts are below for everyone to read & share with others, spread the eco glitter love around. This glitter truly feels amazing!!! xx Rach
|Bioglitter DOES NOT DISSOLVE in water, it needs environmental bacteria & other environmental microorganisms to biodegrade.
|Once it enters the natural environment, such as farmer's field, wastewater or our rivers & lakes, microbes will consume the biodegradable content turning it into carbon dioxide, water & biomass.
In a microbe & bacteria free environment BIOGLITTER is completely DURABLE.
NO microbes = NO BIODEGRADATION

Cosmetic Bioglitter® PURE
also utilizes our new patent pending plastic free natural coating technology. Pure is based on plant-derived or natural materials.
Shellac is approved by the Vegetarian Society, produced from the secreted resin left behind by juvenile insects after they have swarmed the host tree. The process causes no harm, distress or interruptions of the life cycle. A natural and environmentally friendly process.
Cosmetic Bioglitter™ PURE, being 100% plastic free & is compliant with all micro plastic legislation, including the UK microbead legislation Jan 2018. PURE is the world’s first **TÜV, ‘OK Biodegradable WATER’ (Jan 2019) certified glitter range. This is the highest level of independent certification for fresh water biodegradability in the world. Based on natural material rather than plastic, it has been developed to biodegrade quickly and safely in the natural environment.
PURE has & uses TÜV OK biodegradable WATER certification as a simple and clear means of communicating this fact to our customers. We have taken this approach as terms such as ‘100% plastic free’ and ‘100% biodegradable’ can be used without qualification and don’t necessarily describe the eco credentials of a product. At Ronald Britton, we believe OK biodegradable WATER certification cuts through the confusion. Moreover, the ISO 14851/2 tests at the heart of this certification are also specified by ECHA for determination of whether or not a polymeric material is considered a microplastic.
Cosmetic Bioglitter™ replaces the polyester film used in traditional cosmetic glitter with a very special form of cellulose extracted from hardwoods, primarily eucalyptus sourced from responsibly managed and certified plantations operating to PEFC™ www.pefc.org standards. Cosmetic Bioglitter™ PURE utilises our unique mineral and naturally derived coating.
Due to the physical properties and chemistry of the raw materials used in Bioglitter™ it is not possible to re-create the structure of a traditional iridescent glitter. Therefore, we have had to take a completely different approach. Our soft focus ‘Natural’ colour range was our first offering in this novel type of glitter.
The ‘PURE Opal’ colour range, a mother of pearl effect.
‘PURE Vivid’ colour range, a strong metallic effect, both launched in 2020, are our most recent colour ranges.
All Bioglitter™ PURE (100% biodegradable, no plastics) products do not have a reflective aluminium layer, PURE also utilises our new patent pending plastic free natural coating technology, so although they are less brilliant than Bioglitter™ SPARKLE (87% biodegradable, 92% plastic free) they do offer novel opalescent-iridescent effect and enhanced formulation compatibility and resistance.
A Note from Rach: When Sparkle range hits the 100% biodegradability, then I will consider getting in more colours, but until then I believe I have the best eco glitter, to which PURE range is getting more colours over time.
Based on plants, not plastic, Cosmetic Bioglitter™ feels much more comfortable on the skin and less irritable when worn in the hair compared with equivalent sized plastic glitter. Similar to comparing the comfort difference experienced between wearing natural and man-made fabrics; Bioglitter™ is made from naturally derived materials and is physically softer than polyester glitter.
In blind testing, over 80% of people preferred the softer, silky feel of Bioglitter™
In addition, all Bioglitter™ products are precision cut to ensure a smooth clean edge, even further enhancing the user experience.
Being aluminum free they are suitable for use on lips in the US and their enhanced formulation compatibility enables them to perform well when in liquid and solid soaps.
