Elevate Your Products With Eco-Friendly Enhancers

by | published

Let's get creative with eco-friendly enhancers for candles, soap, bath and body products. 

We know how hard it is when you are in the trial-and-error stages of making a new product. It’s such an awesome feeling when we see you finally nail your product with the perfect amount of wax or base and fragrance. 

So what happens after that? You get more creative of course! It's time to enhance your products with unique details using mica powders, eco dyes, energizing crystals, soothing botanicals, and more.

Check out some of our glitters, natural pigments, botanicals, and unique crystals for candles and other home and body care products.

 

biodegradable eco-friendly glitter

As a supplier for our lovely makers and advocate for enhancing your projects, we want to ensure you are making with the absolute best products that the industry has to offer. That’s why we went out and sustainably sourced eco-friendly, biodegradable eco glitter.

Eco Glitter is an eco-friendly, plant-based alternative to plastic glitter proven to biodegrade in the natural environment.

There is a major positive impact on aquatic life with this type of glitter since plastic glitter takes hundreds of years to decompose and because of its size, most of it ends up in the ocean. It’s (say it with us now) glitter, not litter!

We also offer a range of skin safe eco dyes which can be used in bath and body products, hair care, and skincare. 

     

    natural powders for skincare

    natural powders

    Natural powders are useful in bath and body and cosmetic products. Here are a few of our favorites.

    Watermelon powder creates a fun light pink to peachy-pink color and is known for promoting healthy hair and naturally brightening and rejuvenating the skin.

    Activated charcoal powder creates a stunning gray to black color and is safe for soap making, bath and body, and cosmetic products. This powerful powder is known for unclogging pores and removing dead skin cells.

    Blue matcha powder is rich in polyphenols and provides a deep blue to purple color. It can help increase collagen and skin elasticity and fights free radicals.

    French green clay adds a subtle green hue to your creations and can be used to absorb excess oil in face masks, body masks, and facial soaps. It's 100% natural and sourced from France.

     

    micas

    Micas are ideal for adding color and shimmer to candles, soaps, body care, and more.

    Pearl mica adds pearlescent and iridescent pigment with soft and silken luster to cosmetic products and candles you want to put some shine into.

    Copper mica adds a silky touch of light-brown and caramel colored pigment to any project you think needs some tinted shimmer.

    Gold mica adds a golden shimmer and blends wonderfully with our creamy wax blends. Dust your candle tops with it or add a subtle dust to your soaps.

    Don't miss our shimmer micas like flamingo mica which have a finer consistency ideal for cosmetics like lip balm and lip gloss.

    If you're not sure what color mica you'll want to use, we highly recommend trying our mica discovery kit which includes samples of six different colored mica powders.

     

    botanicals

    Botanicals safe for use in soaps, bath bombs, and other body care products. In addition to adding a pop of color, they also offer soothing and skin nourishing properties.

    Butterfly pea flowers are alluring deep blue flowers effective for enhancing mood and elevating energy.

    Safflower petals are rich, orange petals that are great for adding moisture to the skin.

    Lavender buds are an aromatic, healing herb that helps promote relaxation and treats skin blemishes.

    Crystals intended for candles, diffusers, and spray projects.

    Peridot mini chips aid in opening the heart to joy and new relationships, and enhances confidence and assertion.
