Mineral makeup is made from all natural minerals that come from the earth. Most of them are a combination of serecite, mica, titanium dioxide, and zinc oxide. Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are natural sun blocking agents and are used in almost every bulk store bought sun block or lotion you can buy. Most minerals are also water proof so the hold of mineral makeup is usually all day with little or no touch up needed.
The minerals used in the makeup are very finely milled into a powder that is micro-fine and will blend well into the skin and look very natural. An outstanding range of colours in the minerals makes it possible for mineral makeup manufacturers to offer a vast array of colours. A virtual rainbow has been made from blush, eye shadows, lipsticks, and foundation in hundreds of shades. It’s easy to buy two or three different foundation shades and blend them for a custom colour of your own because minerals blend very easily together.
Because our cosmetic grade minerals are so finely milled they won’t clog your pores, and if some of them do happen to get into the blood stream, don’t worry, after all they’re all natural and they are completely safe for the body. Many doctors and dermatologists have proclaimed mineral makeup as the skin care makeup because it is so healthy for the skin and does not aggravate acne and it covers blemishes, acne, large pores, and scars very effectively.
If you’re interested in a safe and natural alternative to chemical, oil and preservative laden makeup, minerals may be something for you to look in to.
