Hurraw! use a synthetic mica in their Aura balms. In this case, synthetic means the “sparkles” are made in a laboratory from natural minerals vs. mined from the earth. Traceability, transparency, and safety is imperative when manufacturing cosmetics. Hurraw can trace their ingredients to the gram because they make it themselves (no contract manufacturing).
Unfortunately, earth mined ingredients (micas, iron/tin oxides) are nearly impossible to track. Suppliers can rarely provide certificate of origin, proof of labor conditions, or documentation of what impurities they contain. Hurraw! stubbornly refuse to use mined micas in the Aura balms due due to contamination, heavy metals, and hushed child labor practices.
Importantly, synthetic mica is third party tested to be free of antimony, arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury, chromium, cobalt, and nickel. It is also safety tested for human use, i.e. the particles of shimmer are much too large to penetrate the skin and have been thoroughly tested for safe cosmetic use.
Glass/Tin: In an effort to reduce plastic, Hurraw! chose glass and tin! Aura's glass jar and tin lid are 100% recyclable.
Tiny Air Bubbles: Rare but sometimes appear on the surface due to the pouring process. These do not affect the product quality or performance in any way.
