Voted in the TOP 3 Natural Mineral Foundations in the World, by Martha Stewart Living Radio! Rated, "CHAMPION" by Campaign for Safe Cosmetics 2012.
Mineral makeup doesn’t contain the unnecessary and potentially harmful ingredients found in many commercial brands, such as preservatives, talc, synthetic chemicals and various fillers. Rather, it is crafted from naturally occurring, finely crushed minerals such as titanium dioxide, mica powder and iron oxides. Instead of artificial dyes, the colors in mineral makeup are crafted from pure iron oxides, which also act as a “heat absorbing” ingredient. Heat or infrared radiation from the sun can damage your skin, causing it to look saggy, leathery and wrinkled. However, iron oxides are earth’s natural non-chemical sun screen ingredients and can protect your skin from aging and cancer causing UVA and UVB rays. Dermatologists often recommend mineral makeup because they know that titanium dioxide and zinc oxide provide excellent sun protection and, combined with the iron oxides, have naturally anti-inflammatory benefits too. This is why mineral makeup is ideal for those with acne or rosacea prone skin, post-surgical/post-chemical peel skin, or those with any inflammatory skin conditions. Natural mineral makeup doesn’t support bacteria well, so it is less easily contaminated than commercial brands and its innate gentleness works well for those with skin allergies or problems such as eczema, extra sensitive, or irritated skin.
Q: What is mineral makeup? A: Mineral Makeup is simply the healthiest, most natural form of makeup available. It has a built in SPF 15, to help protect your skin from future sun damage, without the use of a chemical sunscreen. Natural ingredients, free of perfumes, oils, fillers and dyes, offer anti-inflammatory properties and are ideal for people with sensitive skin, rosacea, acne prone skin, and post-laser redness.
Q: Is the makeup safe for all skin types? A: Yes. It's recommended by dermatologist for it's gentleness and sun protective ingredients. Our Mineral Cosmetics are completely natural with no chemicals, synthetics, preservatives, dye, bismuth, parabens or talc.
Q: Do you have Bismuth in your products? A: No, our pure minerals do not include bismuth. We have heard from thousands of women saying they're having redness, skin irritation, and other reactions to bismuth. We do not include it in our cosmetics
Q: Is it all right to use it on acne-prone skin? A: Yes. It is completely non-comedogenic (won't clog pores) and allows the skin to breathe and function normally. It also easily covers the redness common with eruptions. We have also had many aestheticians tell us that they have seen an improvement in the skin of their clients since they have been using mineral makeup.
Q: Is it necessary to wear additional sun screens when using the minerals? A: No. You may if you wish. We always believe that you can't wear too much protection in the sun. Feel free to use your favorite sun block for extra protection.
Q: Are the powders drying? A: No, quite the reverse. Most Powders have a bad name because they usually contain talc. Our minerals actually trap moisture between the skin and the crystal layer. And our mineral makeup are talc free!
Q: Once I have samples of several foundation shades, how do I find my perfect match? A: There are a few ways to do this... You can wear each shade by itself for one day and see which looks best. You can apply a small amount of each shade on your face (most recommend doing this near the jaw line) follow these simple steps:
1. Use a small disposable applicator such as a q-tip.
