Top Benefits of Mineral Makeup

It’s no secret that there are a lot of benefits for using mineral makeup. People have reaped the benefits of earth’s natural ingredients for centuries.

Mineral makeup is crafted from earth’s natural minerals and pigments. Unlike regular makeup, mineral makeup contains non-toxic, natural ingredients and is generally free of parabens, talc, and chemical dyes. Working to nourish your skin without irritation. And boosting your skin’s health naturally to reveal your radiant complexion.

Mineral based makeup doesn’t seep into your skin like regular makeup. Its sits on top of your skin acting as a protective barrier between you and the environment. It can be used on the most compromised skin due to its non-toxic ingredients. Which makes it the ideal makeup if you suffer from Rosacea, Acne or Sensitive skin. 

It’s safe to say that mineral makeup is much better for your skin when compared to regular makeup.

What Minerals Make Mineral Makeup So Beneficial 

Minerals you should look for in mineral makeup and their benefits:

Zinc Oxide – an effective sun protection against UVA and UVB rays. Because it sits on top of the skin instead of absorbing in it creates a protective barrier that reflects sunlight and filters the UV rays so they don’t harm your skin. It is also an anti-inflammatory and can help soothe rosacea, acne and sensitive skin.

Mica – nicknamed “nature’s glitter”. Mica will help give you a natural healthy-looking glow. It also helps provide a mineral barrier allowing your skin to breath and protects you against the environment.

Titanium Dioxide – also a sun protection against UVA and UVB rays. It is gentle on the skin so it is safe to use around your eyes and works well with sensitive skin.

Iron Oxides – naturally occurring pigments that are non-toxic and won’t irritate your skin. Most commonly found in foundations, eye shadows and lipsticks.
