  • The US FDA has determined that glitter is a color additive which is not listed on their list of approved color additives. This means that a glitter product is not allowed for use in any cosmetic in the USA. Consumers have expressed confusion over this, as it is obvious that there is glitter in all kinds of cosmetics sold currently in the USA and there are no known reports of harm caused by glitter.

    The FDA has not explained itself to our company, but it has advised us that it recognizes that the cosmetics industry has been largely unaware of this determination and it is essentially providing the cosmetic industry a grace period during which FDA enforcement is "discretionary". This grace period allows the cosmetics industry to "respond". The FDA has not provided us with any information on how long this grace period has been in effect, nor how long it will be in effect. They simply state the the issue is "active".

Questions & Answers

Ask a Question
  • Hi This glitter can be used on the eyes

    The short answer is:  No.  While it is a safe size (fine enough), it is not made from pigments permitted by the FDA for use in cosmetics.

    Our Pink Points Glitter is a polyester glitter originally brought in for use in nail polish because it is "solvent resistant" which makes it perfect for that use.

    It is also a nice, 'eye safe' particle size of .008 hex. 

    However, what gives it the pink color is not considered a cosmetic ingredient by the FDA.  For this reason it is not permitted for use in on the eyes.

    Alternatively, our "Microfine Glitters" are made from FDA-permitted colors and are also the appropriate size and therefore one could argue they meet the intentions of the FDA about glitter in cosmetics.  

    Consider our Rose Microfine Glitter.  Very popular!
