What is Mineral Makeup
Mineral Makeup is a type of cosmetic that is made of completely natural minerals. Minerals such as zinc, iron oxides, ultramarine, titanium oxide, bismuth oxychloride (we don't use it on our mineral) and mica are all finely ground into a powder that is gently dusted onto the face with a kabuki brush. Using the brush to work the makeup all over face, you can achieve an even, natural looking layer of complimentary color that enhances your appearance and gives your skin a healthy glow.

Does it build bacteria?
Mineral makeup is naturally very dry loose powder. Most conventional makeup is either in liquid form or uses some kind of bonding agent to hold the compact together. You may have noticed that most commercial cosmetics have an expiration date because they will build up bacteria after a short time due to their moisture content, which bacteria need to survive. In turn, you may have to throw these cosmetics away even if you haven't fully used the whole container. Not very good in your pocket, is it? Because Mineral makeup is completely dry, it does not support bacterial growth, so it's safe for long term use.

Can it withstand humidity?
Absolutely! Conventional makeup doesn't have staying power in the worst conditions such as humidity. As it already has some moisture content, normal makeup isn't able to absorb very much excess facial oil or sweat. regular makeup just seems to melt away, leaving you with creases, shine and makeup uneven discoloration. Mineral makeup has the ability to weather humid conditions and stay put on your face for the entire day, so you always look great.

Is it safe to use for sensitive skin?
Conventional cosmetics can clog your pores, even some that claim to be non-comedogenic. Many also contain alpha hydroxy, and other chemical components designed to remove the outermost layer of skin in an effort to make you appear younger. Some people are very sensitive to these anti-ageing products, it causes their skin to become dry and inflamed. Artificial fragrances, and preservatives can also cause allergic reactions for some people. Mineral makeup is actually great for your skin, it helps block harmful UV rays, and it gives you great coverage without the inflammatory effects of conventional cosmetics. Since only pure minerals and non-organic pigments are used, you shouldn't experience pore clogging. Many users notice a dramatic improvement in the quality of their skin within a short time of using mineral makeup.
