So, what exactly is Mineral Makeup, how is it different to standard formulas and should you be using it?

Made from minerals such as mica, zinc and titanium oxide, which are then milled into a super-fine consistency and combined with pigment, mineral make-up has earned its stripes when it comes to natural ingredients.

In fact, the thing that really sets it apart from standard formulas is more about what it leaves out. When it comes to mineral make-up, you won’t find any oils, waxes, preservatives, synthetic fragrances or bulking agents.

With limited ingredients people are often drawn to the idea that mineral makeup is more natural and, according to many industry experts, it’s also a lot kinder to sensitive skin. This is largely down to the fact that the products are preservative-free and non-comedogenic, meaning it doesn’t clog pores, which can lead to breakouts.

The appeal toward traditional makeup in the beginning is perhaps the noticeable difference achieved when covering up imperfections on the skin. While these products provide coverage, it can prevent the skin from breathing and prolong or worsen any redness, dryness and blemishes, which in turn create the need to wear more. However natural mineral makeup can give similar or even better coverage. In fact depending on the look you want using mineral makeup is build-able. Many consumers claim that mineral makeup results in a more natural flawless looking skin, just like a second skin.

Additional advantages include that it doesn’t encourage bacterial growth due to its make hence there isn’t the same risk of contamination, with a bonus of an increased shelf life compared to non-mineral based make-up.

If we take the impact of climate such as heat and rain and perhaps the possibility of a few tears we all know traditional makeup tends to either melt or rub off or leave a lovely imprint of the memory we want shed away. Mineral makeup is highly resistant to these unforeseen conditions that we may experience throughout our life time.

Unlike traditional make-up the issue of it sinking into fine lines and wrinkles and disappearing as time goes by, mineral makeup results in the opposite. The way mineral makeup interacts with light and bounces of the skin creates a soft focus effect and can reduce the appearance of ageing.
