How To Shop In Order To Find the Best Mineral Make-up
With all of the hype surrounding Mineral powder make-up these
days, how can a consumer steer through the murkey waters of
advertising claims, in order to find the best mineral make-up
for their skin type?
First, check the ingredients. If you find bismuth oxychloride,
dyes, vitamin additives, corn starch (zea mays), or rice powder
listed, find another brand, which avoids these commonly
irritating and bacteria producing elements. Especially if you
have acne, rosacea or sensitive skin issues. Many people cannot
use mineral cosmetics that contain these often times harmful
Secondly, find those brands which manufacture their own
cosmetics, and do so without these irritants.
Third,look for brands that contain zinc oxide to soothe redness
and irritation, all while providing excellent sun protection.
Fourth, seek out companies which manufacture their own
cosmetics, and are not someone else's private label brand. These
commonly list titanium dioxide, mica, zinc oxide and iron
oxides/ultramarines as their main ingredients. These mineral
cosmetics usually have excellent coverage, are water resistant
and have a built-in sun protection factor of about 20. This
spells good news for daily protection against sun-damage, skin
cancer and aging.
