Frequently Asked Questions

What is biodegradable glitter?


Only the most fabulous thing ever! Guilt-free, biodegradable glitter is made from a plant based film that is derived from the fibres of eucalyptus trees. It's 40% softer than plastic glitter, it will degrade in water and soil, AND it's home compostable. Told you it's fabulous!




Do you use essential oils in La Di Dough?


Yes ... and a little bit no. The vegan friendly, Australian manufactured fragrances in La Di Dough contain a high percentage of essential oils, however some contain tiny amounts of ingredients that are not directly formulated from plant origins due to the fact that the scent is difficult or impossible to produce any other way. None of the fragrances are tested on animals. Although our dough is non toxic and smells pretty yummy, it has a high salt content so should not be consumed.




How long will my La Di Dough last?


When you're not using it, pop your dough back in its container, screw the lid on nice and tight and keep it in a cool, dry place. If you're in a hot or humid area, we suggest you also pop it into the fridge. If used regularly and stored correctly, your dough can last up to 6 months. If you notice your dough has become a little dry, add a few drops of coconut or vegetable oil and knead until it becomes smooth again.




How long will my order take?


Because every order is freshly made by hand, please allow 1 to 3 weeks for your La Di Dough order to land on your doorstep. It'll be worth the wait. Promise.

What do you use to colour La Di Dough?
