(Posted on 04/10/17)

Cornelius, an independent European distributor of high quality and innovative raw materials for the personal care industry, is now delivering a biodegradable glitter to the UK beauty market.

The Bishop’s Stortford based company has collaborated with global leading supplier of glitters, Ronald Britton, to distribute its Bio-glitter® range, which is based on a biodegradable film that rivals its plastic counterpart.

Rachael Atwell, Business Development Manager, Care at Cornelius, said: “We believe glitters used in personal care products and are growing in popularity among beauty consumers. Most commercially available glitters are based on PET film and have minimal biodegradability. However, there are more environmentally friendly alternatives available, such as Ronald Britton’s Bio-glitter range.”

Bio-glitter is produced from sustainable sources such as eucalyptus trees and does not contain genetically modified materials. Furthermore, it is a cosmetic approved glitter based on a biodegradable film that is certified compostable. Ronald Britton is the only biodegradable glitter manufacturer in the world with global accreditation.

Bio-glitter offers the same highly reflective properties as a conventional PET glitter and is available in 15 different colours and 6 different hexagonal glitter sizes. Suitable for use in dry, water and oil-based applications, bio-glitter can be incorporated into many personal care applications such as eye shadows, lipsticks, foam baths and body washes.

Mrs Atwell continued: “Ronald Britton is a world-renowned, leading supplier of glitters and metal powders and this collaboration puts Cornelius in a great position to strengthen relationships with both existing and new customers. This is cutting edge technology in a highly regulated market.  We are thrilled to be chosen as an exclusive UK distributor for Ronald Britton.”

Complementing its diverse range of cosmetics ingredients, Cornelius delivers innovative raw materials to be used in hair, skin, sun, wash and oral care formulations.
