WHY WE CHOOSE SYNTHETIC MICA POWDER
Mica powder is a product with many 'grey areas' around child labour in the mines. Unfortunately, many natural mica powders are very easy and widely available and no matter how clear a supplier provides information about the circumstances in which mica is extracted, it remains difficult to determine whether the mica powder in question has actually been obtained in an ethically responsible manner.
We strongly support the use of natural products, but don’t accept child labour. That is why we have decided to switch to synthetic mica, also known as synthetic fluorophlogopite.
This synthetic mica is produced in laboratories and is of a purer quality, which ensures more intense colours, more shine and more glitter! And, more importantly, 100 % child labour free!
