Pixie Dust Biodegradable Glitter FAQ

What does biodegradable mean?

When something is biodegradable, it means it can be decomposed by bacteria or other living organisms. After you dispose of Pixie Dust glitter, it takes only six months to fully biodegrade, ensuring it isn’t harmful to the environment or wildlife in the meantime.

Is it safe for kids?

Yes, Pixie Dust glitter is safe for kids! If accidentally swallowed, it is not harmful. Our glitter is softer and less irritating than plastic glitter on the skin and around the eyes, making it safe for children and even pets.

How is it different from regular glitter?

Regular glitter, commonly found in cosmetic products and craft stores, is made of tiny pieces of plastic that never decompose and harms aquatic ecosystems and marine life. In contrast, Pixie Dust is made from eucalyptus cellulose film, derived from the fatty part of the plant, making it environmentally friendly and biodegradable.

Will it dissolve on my skin if I sweat or in a jar of water?

No, Pixie Dust glitter will not dissolve on your skin if you sweat or in a jar of water. It only begins to biodegrade in the presence of microorganisms found in dirt or wastewater. Pixie Dust can last for years in its glass jar, and once applied, it will maintain its shape and sparkle the whole day until you wash it off.

How do you apply glitter?

Applying Pixie Dust glitter is easy and fun! Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Apply Adhesive: Use a skin-safe adhesive like aloe vera gel, cosmetic glue, or even a natural oil like coconut oil to the desired area.
  2. Apply Glitter: Use a brush or your fingers to gently pat the glitter onto the adhesive. Press it lightly to ensure it sticks well.
  3. Removal: To remove, simply wash the area with warm water and soap or use a gentle makeup remover.

Where do you get your glitter from?
