While super-sparkly at a large particle size (60-400 microns), they do not feel gritty.  
Particularly recommended for nail polish but discouraged for eye use. Please see the FAQ's for details.

Ingredients

Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Titanium Dioxide (77891), Tin Oxide (778161). Please refer to the FAQ tab for further discussion of permitted uses.  
Although permitted for Eye use, we do not recommend them due to their large particle size.

Details

In the USA, natural mica used in cosmetics is not allowed if larger than 150 microns in size. However, larger-sized Synthetic Mica and Borosilicate products are currently permitted.

Even so, it may not be a good idea to have these larger particle sized powders near the eyes.  

Borosilicate pigments like the Mermaid colors are uniquely reflective. Also, the large particle size means they are more sparkly.

The pigments can also be used in many things. In particular we recommend them for nail polish, shimmer body lotion and soap.
