Mineral Make up: Why it is so good for you.

Timaru Courier Column - November/Decembert 2014

Conventional makeup contains chemicals; oils and other additives that can either irritate sensitive skin or cause unnecessary acne breakouts.

courier Nov2014Makeup is actually good for people to wear, as long as it is a good quality mineral makeup, like Osmosis Colour. Osmosis Colour is a unique and exclusive mineral makeup that offers virtually seamless and natural looking coverage that will not look heavy, will not oxidize (deteriorate) during the day and also will not accentuate pores, fine lines, and wrinkles.

Pure mineral makeup binds to oils not water, which gives the makeup a natural water resistance and is much better for your skin then conventional makeup. This is because it adheres to the natural oils in your skin and doesn't seep into your pores. Makeup acts as a protective layer against free radicals. Almost any barrier between your skin and the environment is good, so long as it's still letting your skin breathe, which a good quality mineral makeup does.

Mineral makeup should have very few ingredients. Not all mineral makeup is as good as it should be. Most mineral makeup has a base ingredient of natural mica, which is found in granite and other rocks. Mica has incredible skin adhering properties. This means mineral makeup is not only long lasting on your shelf but also on your skin. The pigment also lasts a long time and a little goes a long way. Using very little mineral foundation can give excellent coverage. For extra coverage, after lightly applying a mineral base, women can use a more concentrated amount of foundation to conceal the areas that need special attention. This also helps mineral makeup last longer on your skin.

Another important ingredient in mineral makeup is Titanium Dioxide. The benefits of Titanium Dioxide include: UV protection, flawless coverage, and natural, healthy beauty care for your skin. Zinc oxide is another ingredient offering UV protection and additionally has soothing properties. Osmosis Colour Mineral Makeup, unlike other Mineral Makeup is also filled with goji berry, amino acids, proteins, vitamins, and antioxidants to help nourish your skin.

A good makeup will not clog your skin or looked caked on. Osmosis Colour is mineral makeup that is healthy and safe for all skin types (including those with acne), while being simple and versatile to use. Finally there is makeup that offers multiple health benefits and great coverage, with each product available in refillable containers to offer value and support the environment.CC_OsmosisColour_Ad_100x150-141020F-web600px.jpg
