What is MICA & the real truth behind it
- Mica is a group of silicate minerals, which can be grounded into a sparkling powder. Referred to as “natures glitter”
- This is one of the most important ingredients in cosmetics, designed to create a glow effect, particularly those marketed as brightening and illuminating.
- Outside of the beauty industry, mica is also occasionally used in toothpaste, car paint and plastics.
- India is the hotspot of Mica, with three-quarters of mining taking place around the boarders of Jharkhand and Bihar.
- These regions have the highest poverty rates and illiteracy below average, forcing people from disadvantaged communities to take up dangerous jobs and rely on children to help provide for their families instead of sending them to school.
- Mining in India is one of the worst forms of child labour, resulting in children often killed or causing permanent damage to their heaths.
- Up to 20,000 children are estimated to work in the mines, around 90% of which are illegal
Who are we raising for?
Bachpan Bachao Andolan (BBA) has freed over 80,000 children from child labour across industries, including 3,000 from mica mines. According to Anna Klein, SVP of global corporate affairs for the Estée Lauder Companies, partnering with BBA was the right choice for its many brands, which includes M.A.C., Clinique, Smashbox, Bobbi Brown, and many more. Estée Lauder Companies decided not to pull out of India when it learned of its connection to child labour practices back in 2005. Instead, it joined BBA on the ground to help create change from the inside out.
Now, on top of giving children an education, BBA delivers legal services to help connect the villages with their government to get the healthcare, education, and infrastructure that they have been denied. “What ensures sustainability is ensuring that the community is able to take on the ownership of these tasks over the long term,”
