Mineral make-up is made from earth pigments and natural minerals. They are ground to a fine powder and mixed to form foundation, blush, and powder. Mineral make-up is free from perfumes, artificial dyes, preservatives, oils, wax, or talc. Instead, it contains titanium and zinc oxide, which have natural UV protectant properties.
Look at the benefits of mineral make-up:
1. Did you know that mineral makeup are inorganic, which means they will not harbor bacteria the same way conventional makeup would. This is great news for women who have acne or rosacea. Mineral make-up lasts a long time (years) as well unlike other makeup with shorter shelf life.
2 Mineral makeup has great coverage and very light on the face therefore does not clog up pores.
3. Mineral makeup are fanatstic for women with sensitive skin! `the minerals act as an anti inflammatory which makes it the only makeup you could use after a chemical peel! wow …They say you can even sleep with your makeup on!
4. Mineral makeup is also better for the environment! Buying regular makeup supports the companies to invest in more chemicals to make more makeup.. a vicious cycle.. not to mention mineral makeup don’t test the products on animals!
