The Benefits of Mineral Makeup

Have you wondered what the hype about mineral makeup is all about?  Are all your friends wearing this new fad and looking wonderful?  Do you want to know more about it?  Is it really better for your skin than regular liquid foundation?

Minerals have been used for cosmetic purposes for thousands of years, dating as far back as the early Egyptians.  Egyptians knew the benefits of using natural products on their bodies.  Loose mineral makeup is the most natural makeup available.  In order for manufacturers to create liquid foundations, they have to add ingredients such as water, oil, waxes, petrochemicals, synthetic humectants, gums and fillers to the mineral colorants.  They also add dyes and preservatives.  Mineral makeup does not require preservatives and offers superior coverage without all the fillers.

Mineral makeup also provides a natural sunscreen.  Titanium Dioxide is one of the main ingredients in mineral makeup and effectively blocks UVA and UVB rays, without using a chemical sunscreen.

Mineral makeup is also wonderful for those with sensitive skin or those prone to breakouts.  Since mineral makeup is comprised of natural minerals, the likelihood of a reaction is rare.  Our ingredients are free of the irritating ingredients found in most cosmetics: talc, dye and perfume.

Mineral makeup is extremely long-wearing.  It stays in place while swimming and exercising.  Not only is mineral makeup long-wearing, it is also effortless to apply.

There are many brands of mineral makeup available on the market.  Not all products that carry the name mineral makeup are pure.  Some have added synthetic ingredients and preservatives that are not necessary for mineral makeup.  At Mere’ Minerals, we exclude the following ingredients from our Mineral line: dyes, lakes, carmine, talc, bismuth oxychloride, petroleum products, sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate, parabens, UREA and others.
