Biodegradable and Compostable Glitter
Final Clearance Sale
After doing extensive research and listening to feedback from customers, with regards to needs vs. wants, pricing concerns, and what we could sustainably offer our customers, we have made some changes to our Biodegradable and Plant-Based Compostable glitter lines.
Please Read "The Scoop on Ocean-Safe Biodegradable Glitters and Plant-Based Compostable Glitters," for all of the pertinent information regarding the product line packaging changes, as well as some more in-depth explanations of the two different product lines available.
All of the bulk glitters on this page are packaged by actual product weight, in recyclable ziplock bags.
We are now offering SAMPLES of our Biodegradable and Compostable glitters. Samples are packaged as 1-Teaspoon of glitter, in a zip bag. Approximate sample product weight is 0.12 oz (3.25 grams), but varies depending on the fluffiness of the glitter.
The Ocean-Safe biodegradable glitters are generally NOT suitable for water-based (aloe gel) formulas. The larger particles will curl and any colors other than gold or silver, will bleed into the gel, and stain skin.

This is an easy melt & mix base for making your own glitter eyeshadows. Simply melt the base in your microwave (approximately 20 seconds) and mix in your favorite cosmetic glitter. We've been experimenting with it quite a bit and find that a 50/50 ratio (by weight) of glitter and the base works best. Visually, it will look like more glitter than base. You want your mix to be somewhat dry, but not totally crumbly. You'll be "patting" it into the jar, rather than pouring it.
To apply your glitter shadow, the glitter can be brushed on with a flat brush or dabbed on with your finger. It can be layered if you have any gaps.
You can also mix in mica powder to create a creme eyeshadow, but you may want to add a little titanium dioxide to make it more opaque.

Use our Glitter Creme Base to make your own glitter cremes or mica-based eyeshadows. Melt the base in the microwave and mix to your own preferred ratio with cosmetic glitter or mica. For glitter, a good rule of thumb is 50% glitter and 50% base, by weight.
***We've made an ingredient change to our formula, as of 8/1/2021. Unfortunately, one of our manufacturers' businesses has been unable to recover from the 2020 craziness, so we had to switch suppliers. The new formula is fantastic, with mostly organic ingredients, and has less chance of melting during shipment than our last formula.
