Ecologically-friendly glitter manufacturer, Ronald Britton Ltd, launches Bioglitter™ HOLO, the first and only certified fresh water biodegradable holographic effect glitter product, in another world first by the British company.
Since the launch of the ground-breaking and multi award-winning Cosmetic Bioglitter™ SPARKLE in 2016, Ronald Britton has continued to lead the glitter industry with a succession of new Bioglitter™ ranges and multiple upgrades on its ongoing journey to optimise the Bioglitter™ product offering.
Stephen Cotton, Commercial Director, said “Bioglitter™ Holo completes the trio of glitter effects; Metallic – Bioglitter™ SPARKLE, Opalescent – Bioglitter™ PURE, and finally Holographic – Bioglitter™ HOLO. Holographic is a very popular effect, it’s the one that everyone has been asking for.”
HOLO comprises of two sub ranges: Cosmetic – for leave-on and rinse-off cosmetic applications, and Deco – for coating, printing, art & craft, and other non-cosmetic applications.
Bioglitter™ HOLO range joins the list of TÜV Austria ‘OK biodegradable WATER’ certified products offered by Ronald Britton. A level of certification considered the highest of its kind in the world. The biodegradability tests at the heart of this certification are also specified by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) in its proposed EU Microplastic legislation due to be published in 2022. These tests are used to determine whether or not a polymeric material is considered a microplastic.
Andrew Thompson, Technical Director at Ronald Britton, said “Being able to differentiate Bioglitter™ from other glitter is becoming increasingly important for manufacturers as customers become more aware of the environmental impacts of ‘traditional’ glitter. And we’re proud to offer all our customers that peace of mind when they see the Ronald Britton’s registered Bioglitter™ logos on products made with Bioglitter™ which is now common on the high street and with big brands.
“Developing Bioglitter™ HOLO has been the most challenging product development yet, almost four years in the making. Needless to say, we’re delighted with what we have achieved, and to see it come to market with such high anticipation.”
