Benefits Of Using Mineral Makeup

I am suprised that a lot of natural mineral makeup are now being sold on different store. I used to see mineral makeups only on the internet. This only prove that using mineral makeup is very beneficial especially for people who have sensitive skin like me. I have a very sensitive and oily skin so I know exactly the benefits of using mineral makeup. I truly believe that a true mineral makeup doesn't compose of too many ingredients because this confuses many of us if the ingredients is realy pure mineral or not.

My mineral Foundatation is composed of only 6 mineral ingredients to compliment any skin type (Mica with Titanium Oxide, Zinc Oxide, Magnesium Stearate, Australian Ivory clay/Koalin Clay and oxide for pigment). I switch Australian clay to Koalin clay during summer where my skin gets really oily. Koalin clay is very good in controling and absorbing oil on my skin and eliminates those extra shine on my face during summer.

Mica coated with titanium dioxide is for matte appearance. It produces a pearl lustre pigments. The wonderful thing about this ingredients is that it makes my skin feel soft and good adhession properties, which makes really good for acne prone skin like me. It also have an very good hiding propertiesto make me looks more natural while hiding some blemishes So even if I put big a lot of Mineral Foundation,it doesn't give me a chalky look.

Zinc Oxide works like an astringent and with great soothing effect which is also good very sensitive skin. It has 28 times the skin's natural protections against harmful UVA & UVB rays.

MAGNESIUM STEARATE: magnesium octadecanoate/ It's a soup like powder tahe provides fine texture and consistency to powders. It helps the powders for skin adherance.

Australian Ivory clay is very soft and silky for sensitive skin. This is so gentle and has a very mild, nurturing action which is particularly good for use on babies and elderly with sensitive skin. I used this on my Mineral Foundation during winter where the weathers gets dry. It is very gentle on skin which my my mineral makeup free for pore clogging abilities.

Kaolin Clay also known as white cosmetic clay, china clay, chalk, and white dirt. This is very gentle on skin while helping to remove oil and keeping the nose from looking shiny.

I personally love organic foundations and natural cosmetics because the thought of absorbing all of the chemicals into my skin does not interest me. The typical woman absorbs over five pounds of chemicals through her skin into her body from makeup.
