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 and ISO14852 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 ISO14851 and ISO14852 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.
4 of our product ranges are now 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.
