Mining the Benefits of Minerals
Mineral cosmetics and skin care products actually nourish the skin. They contain no synthetic ingredients, are ideal for sensitive skin, and don’t contribute to the aging process!
Makeup that Rocks
Light in texture, mineral makeup doesn’t clog pores and allows your skin to breathe. It also doesn’t crease, thereby minimizing the appearance of existing wrinkles. Containing no perfumes, talc, alcohols, dyes, mineral oil, or preservatives, it is ideal for women with problem skin, and it lasts longer!
Virtually allergy-free, mineral cosmetics help slow down the skin’s aging process, rejuvenate and soothe the skin, and protect against the damaging effects of the sun.
Therapeutic Skin Care
Mineral-based skin care products detoxify, exfoliate and soften the skin. Containing naturally occurring major and trace elements, which are required for the body's natural balance and healthy skin cell regeneration, they promote anti-aging, help skin retain its moisture, and encourage collagen production.
Most mineral cosmetics and skin care products contain elements such as titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, magnesium, potassium, sodium, calcium and iron – and their benefits are plenty!
Titanium dioxide has anti-inflammatory properties and provides a natural barrier to UVA and UVB radiation without irritation and guards against the damaging effects of ultraviolet rays.
Zinc oxide is known for its skin healing and astringent properties, and encourages collagen synthesis. It is beneficial in treating acne prone skin and is a natural sunscreen.
Magnesium acts as a natural skin toner and helps to retain moisture, while potassium has anti-bacterial and astringent properties.
Sodium is a natural cleanser and helps hydration.
Calcium regulates cell differentiation and turnover, as well as lipid barrier processes (skin moisture). It stimulates the production of the skin’s own age-protective antioxidants and provide anti-aging benefits.
Iron is important for the synthesis of collagen, a key structural protein in the skin, and protects skin from oxidative damage. Iron oxide is used to color cosmetics.
So if you’re looking for cosmetics or skin care products that naturally “beautify” and rejuvenate your skin, mineral-based beauty products could be the answer for you!
