The Truth Behind Mineral Makeup

Unlike the conventional formulations for commercial makeup brands, mineral makeup doesn't contain oils and waxes, preservatives, fillers and fragrance. What does it contain? Minerals such as iron oxides, talc, zinc oxide, and titanium dioxide that are micronized, or ground and milled, into tiny particles to create makeup.

How do these minerals benefit you? 

Acne: Instead of contributing to skin irritations like most makeup, mineral makeup actually HELPS clear acne and other skin irritations. The anti-irritating ingredients like zinc can be soothing to inflammation.

Pores: Since it's not loaded with fillers and preservative, there's a lot less "junk" to get clog your pores. Mineral makeup is light, allowing your skin to breathe.

Sun Protection: The FDA has approved zinc oxide as a skin protectant and titanium dioxide as a sunscreen. Mineral makeup contains both. While we don't recommend substituting it for sunscreen on a beach day, it will give your skin protection from UVs on a daily basis.

It's light-reflective: What does this mean for you? LESS SHINE (making it especially awesome for pictures.)

Oil-Free: Face it, your skin is probably oily enough. Do you really need to add any more to the mix? You can put away your oil blotting sheets when you switch to mineral makeup.

Convenience: Mineral makeups go on smoother, blend more easily and look beautiful. Makeup doesn't get any easier!
