Want to switch up your foundation routine but not sure whether to go mineral or not? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Many people are confused as to what the fuss about mineral makeup is all about. This might help clear up some confusion:
Mineral Makeup IS-
More natural than most makeup. Mineral makeup companies tend to leave out nasty chemicals like parabens, dyes and fragrances that can leech toxins into skin and cause irritation.
Mineral Makeup IS NOT-
Completely toxin free. In fact, makeup can claim to be mineral even if it has only a small percentage of minerals in it.
All makeup contains minerals, it’s up to you as the consumer to know what you are choosing when you are at the makeup counter. If you are really concerned about what you are putting on your skin, there are a bunch of really great natural/organic makeup companies out there carrying some amazing products. Check out your local Whole Foods or health store.
Also there is a great website called Skin Deep where you can type in pretty much any ingredient and it will tell you how harmful that chemical is to you. A great tool for those of you who are more aware of the negative affects of toxic chemicals around us.
