Bioglitter™, invented and manufactured by British company, Ronald Britton Ltd, is an eco-friendly alternative to glitter (plastic-based glitter) and has been developed to tackle microplastic pollution created by glitter. A development journey now spanning over a decade.
This is not glitter… This is Bioglitter™
Apart from its physical appearance Bioglitter™ has different physical properties and is derived from different raw materials than glitter.
Bioglitter™ uses sustainably and ethically sourced natural and plant derived materials as its basis rather than plastic. They are PROVEN through independent ISO14851/2 fresh water testing of the WHOLE Bioglitter™ product, core and coating, to quickly biodegrade into harmless substances in the natural environment.
One Goal For All. – Independent fresh water biodegradable certification is the goal for all Bioglitter™ products. Ronald Britton Ltd uses ‘TÜV OK biodegradable WATER’ certification as a simple and clear means of communicating this fact to our customers.
We have taken this approach as terms such as ‘100% plastic free’ and ‘100% biodegradable’ can be misleading, used without qualification and don’t necessarily describe the eco credentials of a product.
We believe OK biodegradable WATER certification cuts through the confusion. Moreover, the ISO 14851/2 tests at the heart of this certification are also specified by ECHA (European Chemicals Agency) for determination of whether or not a polymeric material is considered a microplastic.
Currently, four of the five product ranges are OK biodegradable WATER certified.
We remain committed to the future development of both existing and new Bioglitter™ products and to attaining certification for all product ranges.
