Pure mineral makeup is all about choosing to care for your skin and body with 100% natural, safe ingredients.
What do minerals do?
They reflect light giving skin radiance, provide anti-aging benefits with antioxidants and maintain skin moisture. Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide are also non-chemical sun blocks. Soothing Zinc is great for irritation and as a vitamin needed for healthy skin. Mica is a translucent mineral, which gives off different colours and a luminescence.
Our natural beauty and skin care is based on plant extracts, not petrochemicals. Truly natural skin care does not contain detergents or synthetic substances that can dry and irritate skin, while plant oils resemble the oils of your skin, nourishing and protecting.
Sensitivities, eczema and dry skin are often worsened by petrochemical products. Natural skin care and mineral makeup are perfect remedies for those with dry skin and problematic skin.
How to choose mineral makeup?
Look for mineral makeup, natural beauty and skin care brands that:
- list the full ingredients on the packaging
- are made from plants, not petrochemicals
- are free from all harmful toxins and preservatives
- are free from palm oil, or in transition to palm-oil free
- are cruelty free (and many are vegan makeup – see compare page).
Our skin is the body’s largest organ and also the most telling when something is wrong. Skin absorbs about 60 per cent of what is put on it directly into the bloodstream. So it is important to be sure about what you are putting on your skin. If packaging does not provide a full list of the ingredients, then put it down again and choose one that allows you to make an informed choice.
