What is BioGlitter?

Biodegradable glitter is for anyone who wants to shine brightly while being kind to the planet. Opting for an eco-friendly glitter from Moon Shatter (we only use Bioglitter™) is a decision you won't regret, and here's why.

Let's start by acknowledging regular glitter, which is made of plastic and far from eco-friendly. As sustainability becomes a priority, the beauty industry is seeing a rise in environmentally-conscious alternatives.

What is BioGlitter?

Bioglitter™ swaps out the traditional polyester film found in regular glitter for a plant-based cellulose film sourced from sustainably-managed eucalyptus plantations. This makes Bioglitter™ ethically and sustainably produced.

Additionally, Bioglitter™ is antimony-free, with levels below 0.5 ppm, compared to regular polyester glitter which can have up to 150 ppm of antimony. This absence of antimony, a by-product of polyester manufacturing that can harm human health, makes Bioglitter™ a safer choice for both you and the environment.

Ensuring Your Glitter is Truly Biodegradable

Bioglitter™ decomposes like a leaf in nature, reaching 92% biodegradation in just 28 days.

Many companies falsely claim their glitter is biodegradable, but Bioglitter™ passes rigorous tests to confirm it breaks down naturally with the help of bacteria, heat, and oxygen, transforming into biomass and carbon dioxide. 

Bioglitter™ has garnered awards like:

  • "Green and Sustainability" category in PCHI Fountain Awards China (2019)
  • Gold for innovation at in-cosmetics global (2017 and 2018)
