We’ve all been there and cringed on the inside. Heavy concealer that sits in the fine lines. Chalky, powdery cheeks that need a spritz. Congested, lack-lustre skin. The common denominator? Toxic ingredients in makeup that cause damage to the health of the skin, particularly as we mature and our skins need more TLC.
Hydration levels in the skin decrease as we enter our 40’s, and mainstream makeup worsens this issue with ingredients like talc which dry out the skin. Other common nasties are fragrance, fillers and binders, silicones and waxes, dyes, alcohol, lead, and artificial preservatives.
But a healthy, youthful glow is achievable at any age, by using skin-boosting ingredients that are clean, natural, and complementary to your skin type.
Switch the ingredients, and change everything.
As women become more conscious and seek healthier options, mineral makeup is on the rise and has evolved over the last decade. From lightweight BB and CC creams to full coverage foundations and pigmented colour options, there is no shortage of choice for the conscious consumer.
Recommended by dermatologists and skin specialists worldwide, mineral foundations contain ingredients that complement skincare products, protect the lipid barrier, and assist in resolving skin concerns.
Why mature-age skin loves mineral makeup
Natural minerals (Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide, Iron Oxides, Boron Nitride, and Mica) are ground and finely milled, creating soft, light-reflecting pigments.
This is especially compatible with mature skin as the minerals create a smoothing effect, minimising lines and pores. Unlike commercial makeup, mineral makeup will also interact well with any kind of light, including flash photography.
Squalene and Camelia extract in our mineral foundations further promote anti-aging activity by boosting collagen production.
Mineral makeup usually contains hydrating ingredients, creating luminosity in the skin.
With a powerhouse blend of antioxidants (Caprylic, Vitamins B and E, Marigold Extract, and Hyaluronic acid) to boost your hydration levels, our foundations are also free from drying ingredients like talc.
Healing and Camouflaging
If you suffer from skin sensitivities or other conditions such as dryness, psoriasis, pigmentation, or rosacea, mineral makeup is the safest option to use especially after skin treatments.
Redness, uneven skin tone, discolouration, and texture can be camouflaged and simultaneously healed with the right products.
Vitamin E, Pomegranate Extract, Kiwi Seed Extract, Sea Buckthorn, and Raspberry Seed Oil are some examples of the soothing ingredients in our foundations that combat pigmentation, inflammation, and dehydration. Zinc is also a natural healer.
Both Titanium and Zinc are natural, broad-spectrum sunscreens, protecting the skin from harsh UVA and UVB rays, which are the most damaging when it comes to premature aging, dryness, or skin cancers.
Camellia Sinensis and Vitamin E in our foundations also fight free radicals.
Mineral makeup does not clog pores, protecting the skin from congestion. The skin can breathe and function normally, and as a result, makeup sits better and lasts longer.
Our mineral makeup contains natural, nourishing, and luxurious ingredients to protect the health of your skin. The result is a youthful glow and that comfortable “no-makeup” feeling that every woman desires whilst looking her best.
