The Glitter Tribe is on a mission to change the narrative of glitter, one sparkle at a time. Central to their product line is Bioglitter™, a sustainable and ethically made alternative to traditional plastic-based glitter. Crafted from plant-derived materials, primarily a unique form of cellulose from eucalyptus trees, their glitter champions both environmental sustainability and glamour.
- Is created from eucalyptus cellulose sourced from certified and responsibly managed plantations that adhere to PEFC™ and FSC® standards.
- Undergoes rigorous independent testing. ISO14851/2 fresh water tests certify that this glitter biodegrades swiftly in natural environments, transforming into carbon dioxide, water, and biomass.
- Is not only biodegradable but also home compostable, degrading fully in a variety of conditions, from oceans and rivers to home composts.
- Requires the presence of bacteria and microorganisms to decompose, ensuring it remains stable in its packaging until use.
Behind this innovative venture is Meg, a professional in the makeup industry, who was inspired to seek out an environmentally friendly glitter alternative after learning about the detrimental effects of microplastics. With the insights of her environmental scientist husband, Dr. C, and a lot of determination, she realized her vision.
Additionally, they proudly carry the Bioglitter™ badge, signifying their commitment to both quality and the environment. With a certification from the global TUV organization, Bioglitter™ is verified to be free of microplastics and fully biodegradable.
