Is Bioglitter™ REACH registered?

Helpful Information, Product Information

Ronald Britton Ltd Bioglitter™ is defined as a finished article and therefore does not require registration under REACH.

Article 3(3) of REACH regulation states – “article: means an object which during production is given a special shape, surface or design which determines its function to a greater degree than does its chemical composition”. Glitter clearly has a definite shape, surface and design given during the manufacturing process which determine its end use rather than its chemical composition.

We can confirm that Bioglitter™ products do not contain any SVHC’s (Substances of Very High Concern) as defined under REACH.

In line with the May 31st 2018 deadline for full REACH registration, our suppliers have confirmed that the chemical substances currently used in the manufacture of Bioglitter™ products are either fully registered or exempt from registration.
