The Diamond Dust Glitter Vault is biodegradable and completely free from animal or animal-derived ingredients
So, 'vegan' makeup... what does it actually mean for cosmetics to be vegan?
A product is vegan when it does not contain any animal ingredients, such as animal skin or bones, or animal-derivatives such as lanolin, gelatin, collagen or beeswax.
Unfortunately, the cosmetics industry is filled with products that contain animal-derived ingredients with no way of us knowing what processes are used to source these ingredients from the animals and whether they are humane or inhumane.
There is a simple solution: Our biodegradable glitters contain only 5 ingredients, that are clearly labelled on our packaging, are plant-based and are not sourced from animals in any way!
These glimmering glitters are made up of 95% plant-based cellulose that is derived from the fibres of eucalyptus trees.
The other 5% of our glitter consists of:
Plant-derived glycerin (2%): a completely odourless and non-toxic smoothing emollient
Aluminium (<1%): the ingredient that provides a sparkle to the glitter and is in very minimal quantities, unlike traditional glitter, making the product biodegradable
Plant-derived phenolic epoxy resin (<1%): an adhesive that binds the cellulose and dye
Pigment (<1%): a completely vegan colourant that gives the glitter its vibrant colours
Keeping the ingredients list short and sweet, and plant-based, not only allows the glitters to be biodegradable but also completely vegan. Now it's time to complete your makeup look with some animal-friendly glitter while cuddling our gorgeous, floofy pets. You're welcome ;)
Our glitters are also completely cruelty free as they are not tested on animals! For more information on the difference between cruelty free makeup and vegan makeup, feel free to check out our blog: What Is Vegan Makeup and Is It Important to Choose the Vegan Option Every Time?
