Mineral Revolution

Mineral Makeup is not new. People have been using it for ages. Men and women alike have been painting their bodies with “earth colors” since ancient times. In more recent years, conventional methods have led to the development of not-so-natural cosmetics full of chemicals and unhealthy, often carcinogenic, ingredients. Mineral makeup gets back to basics, using naturally occurring, safe minerals, ground to a fine powder, as the makeup base.

A plethora of different companies have come out with their own line, namely Sephora, Jane Iredale, BareMinerals, SheerCover, PurMinerals, and many more. Each company has formulated its own bases, though all are very similar in basic composition. Prices, however, vary widely, and in many instances, price goes up with the name on the label.

Mineral makeup is virtually exploding the beauty market.

Why Mineral Makeup?

  • Will not clog pores
  • Virtually no allergy risk
  • Broad-spectrum UVB and UVA protection
  • Anti-inflammatory, helps to calm and soothe irritated skin
  • Very water resistant, rarely a need to reapply
  • Provide complete coverage for skin conditions like acne, rosacea
    and redness following treatments like chemical peels and laser resurfacing
  • Minerals cannot support bacteria
  • Less expensive and all natural because its made with minerals

Basically mineral makeup has no contraindications. Everybody can use it.
