How Long Does it Take Biodegradable Glitter to Decompose?

Using glitter in your makeup, with crafts, or on a gift is a great way to jazz up the overall look. Glitter is versatile and comes in many colors and shades. It also comes in different sizes, which add to its depth. If you are conscious of your green footprint, you may be wondering, how long does it take biodegradable glitter to decompose?

Authentica Biolglitter degrades within four weeks in natural water sources. The microorganisms within the water slowly eat at the glitter, as it is plant-based. Bioglitter does not leave behind microplastics or harmful pollutants.

As you know now that bioglitter exists, it is time to find out where you can buy it, what type of glitter it is, and what makes it different from other supposedly biodegradable glitters.

Today Glitter Offers Bioglitter

If you want to be more earth-friendly and switch your microplastic riddled glitter to a biodegradable glitter, it is absolutely possible. Today Glitter has exclusive selling rights for the only real biodegradable glitter on the market. 

Bioglitter is a great alternative and is eco-friendly. It is also safer to use when applied with makeup and on crafts. This is because this glitter is plant base and lacks the dangerous chemical combinations and plastics found in traditional glitter. It won't be abrasive on your skin and, if accidentally ingested, will not cause you bodily harm.

Three Biodegradable Glitter Options

Glitter is not one size fits all. Different types of glitter are used in different application circumstances. For example, you would not use craft glitter in your makeup as its properties are different and can cause a reaction on your skin. You would also not use makeup glitter on a craft because it could break down under heat or when mixed with glue or water.

Today Glitter offers three main types of Bioglitter with this in mind. Their experts know that glitter is not one size fits all. This is why they have created Bioglitter Sparkle, Bioglitter Deco, and Bioglitter HOLO.
