Cosmetic Glitter VS Craft Glitter

of Plastics

Let’s see what differentiates these two types of glitter and how ONE can be TWO. 



Unfortunately, most cosmetic glitter out there is harmful to the environment since the vast majority of manufacturers use plastics on non-naturally biodegradable materials. We are learning that in addition to cause serious damage to the environment, plastic can be very toxic if someone ingests it by mistake. On the other hand, craft glitter is made of glass, metal, and poly-coated dyes.

Another material frequently used in cosmetic glitter is PLA that does not biodegrade in nature. If we want to be responsible with the environment, we have to look for products that use actual biodegradable materials. Not even compostable glitter is enough.



They both normally use machinery that gets rust into the glitter. In order to be sure a glitter is safe for the user, the production and packaging must comply with the GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) and workers should follow a proper sanitary behavior. Users need to research what they buy to put into their skins.
