Mineral Make up
These days we are all trying to be greener, eat healthier and get a bit fitter so it’s no surprise that we are starting to think about what we put on our skin too.
Mineral Make up has been around for quite a long time now and even though we are putting it on our skin, do we really know that much about it.
What is mineral make-up?
Mineral make up originated in the mid 70’s – and were products made with 4-5 all natural, finely ground minerals from the earth–that were more beneficial to the skin than the chemicals, dyes, and preservatives found in traditional makeup. Mineral make-up is made by using the purest inert ingredients that don’t contain harmful irritants. The minerals that are used are undiluted pure pigment, with no contaminants.
Why is it better for you?
Minerals have so many various benefits to the skin and they are ideal ingredients for make-up as they are naturally coloured. Some minerals have sunscreens, which are natural: Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide are among the best ones as they reflect light.
These particular minerals also are anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial. The soothing and weightless nature of minerals means they can be used on the most sensitive skin and are frequently used post-surgery.
