Gaia Glitter celebrated our launch in February 2019. We are a new business bringing high quality, biodegradable, cosmetic grade glitter to eco-conscious sparkle lovers in Australia and beyond!
We love to sparkle, but not at the cost of the environment! All our glitter is made from plant cellulose and is certified bio degradable, so you can dispose of it in your compost, or wash it down the sink or shower without feeling guilty. Glitter decomposition time can vary depending on the environment, but it will break down quicker when exposed to microbes in natural environments e.g. composts, soil, and water. It generally takes between 3-6 months to degrade in natural environments.
There’s a difference between bio degradable craft glitter, and bio degradable cosmetic glitter! All dyes used to colour our glitter are cosmetically certified, and contain different extracts and chemicals that are safer on your hair, face & body. Biodegradable glitter is also softer than plastic (PET) glitter, making it a great choice for those with sensitive skin. We still recommend taking care when putting glitter near your eyes, for obvious reasons!
