Currently, the FDA does not approve synthetic glitter as a color additive in cosmetics in the US [although it is approved in other countries]. This is because Polyethylene Terephthalate [aka PET, PETE, or Polyester] is basically plastic. As a business owner, as one who provides products to the public, we have a legal obligation to remain educated about the product we market. That being said, the FDA has made it clear that Polyethylene Terephthalate is not accepted as a cosmetic additive, but there is no enforcement. The FDA only states there is an active grace period for the cosmetic industry to respond, but it is discretionary. They have also not provided information as to how long the grace period has been or will be in effect. I do provide this disclaimer to leave my customers to make their own informed decision based on their own personal needs. I personally have used the synthetic glitter products I sell, as well as other major and small companies and as of yet, I've not had a problem. And to the best of my knowledge, there are no reports of harm caused by small particle synthetic glitter, though large particle "craft store" glitter is a different story.
So again, I leave it up to you to make your own decision based on what is right for you. And as always, if you have any other questions, you can always email me at AlluringCosCS@gmail.com
