FAQs & Shipping

How do I apply Gaia Glitter?

Our preferred method is a bit of clear balm (we use Gaia Balm – made in house and 100% natural!) where you want the glitter to stick, then dab it on with a brush, or your finger! You can also use eyelash or body gem glue for an extra long stick. Take care around the eyes 👀

Is Gaia Glitter edible?

No. Whilst it’s non-toxic, it’s not recommended for consumption and best to avoid. You can find some edible glitter recipes online, made with sugar or gelatin.

How long does it take to degrade? Will the glitter degrade in the tin?

Glitter decomposition time can vary depending on the environment, but it will break down quicker when exposed to microbes in natural environments e.g. composts, soil, and water. It can generally take a few months to fully degrade. Dispose of it in your compost, or wash it in the sink or shower without feeling guilty.

It wont degrade in your tin, just make sure to keep the lid on whenever you aren’t using it. Biodegradable glitter wont degrade when cast in resin!

What is Gaia Glitter made from?

The main ingredient in our biodegradable glitter is plant cellulose (95.4%-99.8%), sustainably collected from eucalyptus. We’ve made sure our glitter is safe, with the help of The National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS), as required by Australian law.

Ingredients: Rayon (Plant Cellulose Regenerated: 95.4%-99.8%), Glycerin (Plant Derived), Aqua, Urea (vegan), Styrene/Acrylate Copolymer + cosmetic grade dyes: (Red 15850:1, Yellow 19140:1, Blue 42090:2, Black 77266, Aluminium 77000) 0-1.3%.

Plastic free!

Is Gaia Glitter Vegan and Cruelty-free?

Yep, and yep! ❤️ It doesn’t contain animal products, is not tested on animals, and wont cause marine life to die from ingesting microplastics.

What about your packaging?

Your glitter comes in a 100% recyclable or reusable aluminium tin. We really wanted to have a clear-top window so you could see the glitter, but why the extra plastic? There’s tiny sacrifices we can make for Mother Nature that are just a no-brainer!

We also now offer oxo-biodegradable ziplock bags! Oxo-biodegradable bags generally decompose in 6-12 months in landfill, but will last up to 12 months if kept in a cool, dry, and clean place. They can also be recycled as long as no degradation has started. Unlike most other biodegradable bags, Oxo-biodegradable bags don’t release methane gas as they degrade!

Can I buy bulk/wholesale?

Absolutely, just get in touch with us here! If you’re looking to buy bulk or wholesale, or you’re a facepainter, MUA, dance school etc. and want to purchase regularly, we can set you up with a unique discount code. Even if you’re after a large order of a colour we don’t stock, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
