Understanding these benefits of mineral make-up will ease your mind knowing that what you put on is as important as what you put in.
An average woman will absorb 5 lbs of personal care products each year.
Every day, more and more consumers are becoming aware of the impact their beauty products have on their personal health. One of the current hot topics for many women is finding the health benefits in switching to a mineral based cosmetics line. Although most women understand that minerals are healthier to use, they may not fully know why.
So what are the benefits to mineral based cosmetics?
Natural mineral make-up is composed of pure, cosmetic-grade minerals such as mica, titanium oxide, and zinc oxide. They are free from fragrances, animal by-products, talc, fillers, parabens, and binders which are commonly found in ordinary chemical based cosmetics.
Mineral make-up doesn’t support the growth of bacteria, meaning mineral make-up is less likely to become contaminated than other makeup types.
Since many of the minerals also naturally reflect light, they also help aid in minor sun protection and can reduce the appearance of aging. Mineral cosmetics can be a great choice for people with skin allergies and irritations, because it is much gentler than chemical makeup. Mineral make-up provides excellent coverage, which helps to create flawless-looking skin.
