  • What is Karmaglitzer made of?
    Karmaglitzer is sustainably produced and made from natural plant products such as cellulose. The basis is eucalyptus. Cellulose is the main component of plant cell walls and is therefore the most common organic compound in existence. Cellulose is also an essential raw material that is used for paper production. Ingredients: 72% Rayon, 11% Glycerin, 6% Aqua, 3% Urea, various natural color pigments, max. 8% Acyrlate Copolymer, max 0.1 aluminum. Glitter production is constantly being developed further. The goal is to make glitter that is 100% plastic free.
  • For what can you use Karmaglitzer?
    Karmaglitzer can be used for crafts, make-up and decoration.
  • What is the best way to apply Karmaglitzer?
    Since it is loose glitter, there are different options. For crafting: Karmaglitzer can be attached with any glue or incorporated into a mass, for example into homemade glitter clay. On skin: The easiest way to apply Karmaglitzer is to moist the skin area with water and dab the glitter with your finger or a cosmetic brush on to the moist area. Vaseline, coconut oil or extra make-up glue are suitable for even better hold. First apply a thin layer to the desired part of the body and then you can spread the glitter with your finger or a brush. Recipe for natural skin glue: - 15 ml water - 15 g sugar - 20 g cornstarch -> Mix everything together, then add another 75 ml of boiling water and mix well.
  • How long does it take till Karmaglitzer degrade completely?
    That depends entirely on the external conditions, because microorganisms are required for degradation. The more microorganisms there are, the faster the degradation will occur. Ideally the climate is warm and humid.
  • Why does Karmaglitzer not contain PLA (polyactides)?
    PLA (also known as polylactic acids) is described as bio-polymers and therefore as biodegradable, but degradation cannot take place in a natural environment but only in an industrial environment. This does not correspond to our ideas about biodegradability.
  • Does Karmaglitzer dissolve in water?
    No, Karmaglitzer is not water-soluble. For complete decomposition, microorganisms are required, which then break down the glitter into harmless substances such as carbon dioxide and water. If Karmaglitzer would be water-soluble, we would no longer see it in the water, but it would still be there and would not break down. This is comparable to the salt in the sea; We can't see it in the water with our eyes, but when the seawater dries on the skin, the salt residues are clearly visible.
  • Why shouldn't I eat Karmaglitzer?
    Even though Karmaglitzer is made from biodegradable materials, it is only for external use as it is not digestible. This can be compared to wood; Even if it is something natural, it is not suitable for our consumption because we cannot digest wood.
