:Glitter

We love glitter and use it in our products for the shimmering qualities. 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.

When used in our Shimmy Shimmy and Glitterbug massage bars 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 colors. This adds to the visual appeal and an element of fun to our products, which are loved worldwide.
