What is Mineral Makeup?
Mineral Makeup is just as it sounds, makeup made from natural minerals found on Earth. However, there is more to it than just that.
Used since ancient times, mineral makeup does not contain any toxins or parabens, such as talc, which can be irritating to skin. Instead, it is comprised of natural oxides, including zinc and iron, that are ground to a fine, illuminous powder for use on the skin.
While traditional makeup also uses minerals in its formulation, it is often mixed with heavy oils, water, perfumes, synthetic coloration, and preservatives for longer shelf lives and lower costs. These ingredients can clog pores and cause irritation.
At bellapierre, all our makeup is made from pure oxides and does not contain harmful ingredients that can lead to skin irritation. Instead, our mineral makeup is beneficial to skin, especially for those with existing conditions, such as acne, rosacea, and eczema, as it does not clog pores or contain harmful fillers.
Iron Oxides: Composed of iron and oxygen, Iron Oxides originate from natural minerals and are used to tint and enhance makeup shades.
Zinc Oxides: Zinc Oxides nourish the skin with anti-inflammatory properties and provide protection from the sun’s harmful rays.
Mica Powders: As a naturally occurring mineral dust, Mica Powders provide dense color saturation and are often used in foundations and shimmer powders.
Titanium Dioxide: Found in the Earth’s crust, Titanium Dioxide has a white opaqueness with light reflecting properties and is often used as a brightener in mineral makeup.
Why Use Mineral Makeup?
Mineral Makeup has several skin-enhancing benefits and does not cause irritation like a lot of supermarket brands due to their use of fillers, fragrances, and other irritants, such as talc. Bellapierre’s mineral makeup does not contain any of these harmful ingredients and is comprised of 100% natural ingredients to create beautiful, lightweight makeup that gives you a flawless look and lasts throughout the day.
