(Polyethylene terephthalate)

We love glitter and use it in our products for the shimmering effect. In a bath product, glitter swirls through the water; if used at a higher concentration, it clings to the skin when bath-time is over. Our Flosty Gritter is a perfect example.

When used in our glitter bars, Shimmy Shimmy and Iridescent Glitterbug, it twinkles on arms, shoulders, legs and anywhere else you like to rub them!

To create the glitter, polyethylene terephthalate is made into thin, translucent film. This film is cut into very tiny particles, which appear as glitter dust. Larger particles are iridescent and shimmer with reflected light. 

Polyethylene terephthalate is a resin from the polyester family, which is very versatile and commonly used to make plastic bottles.

Pigments can be added to the base to create glitter in many wonderful and varied colours. This adds to the visual appeal and an element of fun to our products, which are loved worldwide.
