Mineral Glow Touch of Sun Bronzer & Blush. Finally, makeup that's truly good for your skin. We all want to look good naturally. In a perfect world, we could face anyone barefaced and confident, but most of us need a helping hand from makeup. Makeup is one area where many people compromise, opting for ease of application, staying power, and color selection instead of natural ingredients.
Consider the ingredient list of an average bottle of liquid foundation. Water is at the begining, followed by silicones, talc, glycerine, paraffin, synthentis wax, aluminum starch, sodium laureth sulfate, synthetic fragrance and some FDA approved pigment. All of these ingredients have been shown to block skin pores and cause irritation in human and animal studies. Lets remove all the irritants, potential and proven toxins, and frangrance, and what are we left with? A pinch of mineral pigments.
No wonder mineral makeup, which is nothing more than finely powdered minerals, (Titanium dioxide, Zinc Oxide, Iron Oxide and mica) is becoming the makeup of choice of health of health-conscious models, celebrities, and makeup artist. Thanks to the latest technologies, minerals can be milled so finely to microscopic size that they stick to the skin's surface without any need for additional binding and slip agents such as silicones, and since mineral powder contains no water, there's no need to use preservatives either.
Your makeup is going to sit on your face all day long, so going mineral helps you avoid unnecessary synthetic fillers and preservatives contained in conventional makeup.Cleverly formulated mineral makeup will also help protect your face from sun exposure and excessive sebum production.
Invented 30+ years ago, mineral makeup is quickly becoming the hottest selling product. Those who love and use mineral makeup praise the dewy, natural, long lasting glow and ability to layer without the added bulk. Most important, pure formulations without synthetic bulk are safer and better for sensitive and acne or rosacea prone skin. Another big advantage of mineral makeup is, its built in sun protection (titanium dioxide and zinc oxide).
As always, don't be fooled by "all natural" or "all mineral formula" on the label. Mineral makeup can still contain paraben preservatives and other fillers such as rice powder or flour.
