    I don't think anyone mentioned health, but an interesting idea. That was big in the news not long ago, the micro-particles in body wash, face peels, holiday decor (glitter) etc. I didn't really give it a thought since it seemed like it would be adding too much worry to an already crazy world. They're finding the stuff in fish and other life in the oceans. Even in remote arctic locations. Crazy stuff!!

    For me, it was just a nuisance. But all avoided if you never aim a flashlight around your home

    No risks. It's basically engineered sand. The roundness gives it the reflecting qualities.
