I've always used glitter that is specifically marked as "for use in soap". But I wonder, is there truly a difference between "soap glitter" and regular old craft glitter? Or am I just being swindled out of a couple extra bucks?
So, if you see glitter advertised as FDA approved, you can be reasonably sure that either the advertiser doesn't know about FDA regulations or is misrepresenting the product. At this time, FDA enforcement of glitter not to be used in cosmetics is "discretionary" (whatever this means) and cosmetic manufacturers are still using glitter in their products. Who knows when and if this may change. Fortunately, soap isn't a cosmetic.Composite pigments: Color additives used in combination to achieve variable effects, such as those found in pearlescent products, are subject to the same regulations as all other color additives. Some color additives, when used in combination, may form new pigments, which may not be approved for the intended use. An example is a "holographic" glitter, consisting of aluminum, an approved color additive, bonded to an etched plastic film.
Looked like it. Another admin deleted it.^spam?
