Benefits of Mineral Makeup

Mineral makeup is healthy for your skin.

Unless you’ve been make-up free for the better part of a decade, you’ve probably heard of mineral makeup. You’ve probably also heard the benefits of mineral makeup compared to traditional cosmetics, but does mineral makeup live up to the hype?

We think so.

Mineral makeup is comprised of minerals that are pulverized and sterilized as a fine powder.

The ingredients in mineral makeup-mica, zinc oxide, titanium dioxide—are nothing new to cosmetics.

But the way they are packaged is revolutionary.

Mineral makeup is usually packaged as loose powder, eliminating binders that irritate skin.

Mineral makeup also eliminates irritants like fragrances, dyes and talc, a major culprit in the formation of acne.

So, what are the benefits of using mineral makeup?

The ingredients in mineral makeup improve skin’s health while providing coverage of redness, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles. Other benefits to mineral makeup:

    • It is 100% non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog pores.
    • It is a natural sunscreen.
    • It is safe for skin with rosacea.
    • It is safe for skin with acne.
    • It does not smear or crease when applied.
    • It is less prone to contamination.
    • It can be used after microdermabrasion and chemical peels.

Not all mineral makeup collections are created equal, however. Mineral makeup is not checked by the FDA, so companies can put fragrances and other irritating ingredients into mineral makeup.
