A lot of pearlescent pigments are based on natural mica, much of which which is mined in northern India. This can lead to issues relating to worker conditions and child labour. All our partners have committed to ensuring that No Child Labour has been a key criteria for sourcing mica. Papertex has implemented a responsible procurement policy to ensure the traceability and transparency of its supply chain.

Through membership of the Responsible Mica Initiative which works together to eradicate child labour and improve working conditions in the Indian mica supply chain, our partners are able to continuously monitors their mica supply chain and makes efforts to implement fair and sustainable mica collection under a legal framework, with no child labour and acceptable worker conditions.
