Do you remember when plastic micro-beads where banned? Plastic glitters are being categorized as the same. Why? Both are made from micro plastic and they're making their way into our oceans and hurting our ocean life. In fact scientist are trying to ban plastic glitters all together.
Don't worry!!! You no longer have to breakup with glitter! We decided to take matters into our own hands with GlitterEnvi, an Envi'ronmentally friendly glitter that's biodegradable.
How does the GlitterEnvi degrade?
Cellulose (wood pulp) and Polyactide (corn starch) breakdown as microorganisms in the earth eat away at them. It takes about 9 month to fully degrade and is in accordance with ASTM standards.
Are the glitters water soluble?
No. they are not.
What's the difference between Clean Cosmetics, Vegan, and Cruelty free?
Clean Cosmetics - are made without harsh/toxic ingredients, are ethically sourced, and designed with the environment in mind.
Vegan - products made without any animal byproduct.
Cruelty free - manufactured or developed by methods that do not involve experimentation on animals.
Why are the glitters not Vegan?
GlitterEnvi collection is not vegan as the binder that holds them all together is made from Shellac. Which Shellac is a secretion left behind from a female lac bug. This secretion is then scrapped off of trees and made into a resin. Although it is a natural bio-adhesive, it is not vegan.
We are happy to say that the rest of the MisMacK line is Vegan.
