What is Cosmetic Grade glitter?
Over the past few years, you may have seen the label Cosmetic Grade cropping up on polyester glitter products. If it is truly Cosmetic Grade, it means that the colorants/ingredients in the glitter have been tested by the FDA and are certified as safe for skin. The very nature of this label implies that all other polyester glitters are not safe for contact with skin. This is not necessarily the case at all. The missing label means the colorants have not been tested by the FDA to be used in cosmetics. It is a personal choice as to whether this label is important to you.
Any glitter that has "Cosmetic" in the title and description is considered safe for skin. Tattoo artists usually prefer Metallics and Holographics. For eco-conscious artists, we have biodegradable glitters that can be found in the Boutique Exhibition section.
