We are pleased to offer a variety of innovative biodegradable glitters. This particular glitter is one that we have had requests for from wedding parties, color runs, color wars, parades and any other time you want to throw glitter around outside. It is a stunning glitter made from a biodegradablelactide base film and it will break down over time. However, it holds together long enough to set in many glues, epoxy and even short lived in lotions (test first) and works very nicely for many direct to skin cosmetic usages, and glitter tattoos.
Jar Details: The glitter is sold in a clear jar that we call "The Mini". The jar holds approx. 1.5 teaspoons of glitter and is filled by volume not weight (due to extreme variances in glitter weight color to color). There is a round label on the bottom that says the name of the glitter and also has our web address and logo. If you wish to resell these jars, you can ask for "no labels on jars" in the Comments Section when you checkout.

Glitter Rule- "The bigger the flake, the bigger the sparkle". In addition to this rule, finishes also have a big impact...
