Festival season is all about good music, fun with friends, and putting ourselves at the mercy of the unpredictable British weather. Arguably more important than anything else, though, is getting your summer shimmer shining bright!
Attitudes are shifting in favour of eco-friendly and biodegradable glitter alternatives; festival organisers and revellers alike are becoming increasingly aware of the environmental implications of single-use plastics, with some having committed to banning them.Want to keep your shimmer game radiant as well as ethically on point? Worry not, we’ve got the solution.
The ill-effects of conventional glitter on the environment have even led to some scientists calling for it to be banned. When the party’s over and glitter is washed off, it enters the water system where its small size means it can be easily digested by corals and fish, causing harm to marine life and disrupting the delicate underwater ecosystem.
Achieving a gorgeous summer shimmer need not compromise the environment. With naturally occurring rock-forming mineral, mica, it doesn’t have to! Found in the earth’s crust, mica has been used in medicinal practices and as pigment in paints and makeup for centuries. You’ll often see it listed as an ingredient in eyeshadow palettes and, increasingly, it’s helping shimmer aficionados everywhere achieve golden radiance as an eco-friendly alternative.
As part of our aim to be a force for good beyond beauty, we are proud to use ethically and sustainably sourced mica in our award-winning Summer Goddess Shimmering Body Oil. The gorgeous shimmer particles provide a subtle glow, making this hydrating oil a versatile choice. No matter the occasion, you’ll be sure to turn heads with a naturally radiant shimmer, while causing no harm at all to the planet. OR you’ll be sure to turn heads with a naturally radiant shimmer.
Whatever you’re up to this summer - from festival fun to weddings and graduations - get your shimmer on the eco-friendly way.
