All that glitters – should be sustainable.

Make sure your glitter products are sustainable this Festival Season.

It’s easy to make sustainable beauty choices this festival season with Aussie brands offering eco-friendly glitter.

Coming up to the Summer festival season, the need to be covered in glitter will once again emerge. 

Glam glitter can be the make or break of the ultimate festival look, yet most cosmetic (or not) glitters are made with plastic. Any glitter made from plastic that falls off the body, face or hair will not break down, and stay in the environment forever, more often than not ending up in the ocean; with up to 51 trillion glitter fragments ending up in the ocean every year.

Fear not, the love of glitter can be fulfilled, with many brands now catering for the sustainable festival goer with eco-friendly glitter products for the body, face and hair. These new eco-friendly glitters are made with synthetic, mineral based sparkle products such as synthetic Mica that are completely bio-degradable and plastic free – not to mention better for the skin.

Here are some Aussie brands offering sustainable glitter options to complete any festival look:
