Bioglitter Pure Ingredients
Rayon (Cellulose Regenerated), Glycerin (Plant Derived), Aqua, Urea, Shellac, [+/- Mica, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Titanium Dioxide (CI: 77891), Iron Oxide (CI: 77489), Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide (CI: 77510), Tin Oxide (CI: 77861).
Bioglitter Pure, Pure Opal, Vivid and Holo contain shellac which is not vegan friendly.
Approved by The Vegetarian Society, the shellac is produced from the secreted resin left behind on bark by the female lac insect.
This is a natural and environmentally friendly process and no insects are harmed in this.
However, this does mean these ranges are not vegan friendly.
We stock Bioglitter in various different sizes including:
● Micro Fine ● Fine ● Standard ● Chunky ● Ultra Chunky
Always look out for the official Bioglitter™ logo. Only licensed resellers that have permission from the manufacturer are allowed to display this logo and this is to give consumers peace of mind when purchasing.

Bioglitter will not just dissolve in water.
It needs environmental bacteria and other microorganisms to be present to biodegrade.
After entering the natural environment, microorganisms consume bioglitter and turn it into biomass, water and carbon dioxide.
The time it takes Bioglitter to biodegrade will depend on factors such as temperature, moisture and microorganisms present.
The Bioglitter Pure Range is also suitable for industrial and home composting.
