Is mica the same as glitter?
No! Cosmetic glitter is a microplastic (polyethylene mainly) and extremely unfriendly toward the environment. Because it is so small it easily ends up in the earth, in water systems and finally in the ocean. By eating fish, the glitter comes back to haunt us by ending in our stomachs.
Are micas environmentally friendly?
Micas are silica-based, i.e. they are made of a natural substance which is biodegradable. This makes micas the responsible choice for anyone who is concerned about the environment.
Micas are a cosmetic raw material for use in melt & pour soap, cold process soap, bath and shower gels, eye makeup and DIY body lotions and creams.
Generally the impact of micas is more subtle than that of glitter. In body lotion one sees the effect once the lotion is applied to the skin and not in the lotion itself. In a shower or body gel you will see the sparkle or shimmer of the mica in the bottle as well as on the skin.
