What are the benefits of mineral makeup over traditional makeup? What makes it different than the regular makeup I've used for years?
- UV Protection
- Natural Colorants
- Cruelty Free
Mineral makeup is comprised of micronized minerals, so it actually sits on the surface of the skin and isn’t absorbed into it. Therefore, mineral makeup will not clog pores or get a cakey look in lines or creases. Mineral Fusion is a better choice than traditional makeup because it is not only non-comedogenic, but the formulations are pharmaceutical-grade, free of parabens, chemical dyes and perfumes, and are created with natural preservatives, making them healthy and effective for all skin types. Minerals often used in mineral makeup include micronized Titanium Dioxide (which acts as a natural sunscreen), Iron Oxides (which give color to the makeup), Zinc Oxide (a natural sunscreen and soothes skin). Mineral Fusion does not contain talc. Talc is the #1 ingredient in many traditional makeup formulations and is used as a filler - unfortunately it can clog pores and make fine lines look worse, the longer it is on the skin. Mineral Fusion makeup lays on the surface of the skin and allows your skin to breathe and function normally. It’s better to wear it than no makeup at all.

Mineral Fusion's new innovations bring clinically superior antioxidants and pharmaceutical grade mineral makeup together in a color palette as rich as the nature-inspired colors they are modeled after.

By incorporating pharmaceutical treatment benefits and a BRILLIANT color palette, Mineral Fusion is able to provide flawless coverage and healthy skin in a mineral cosmetic that appeals to women of all tastes and styles. Plus, Mineral Fusion pressed base is a no-mess alternative to other mineral makeup lines who offer a loose base formulation.
Is it true that mineral makeup contains a natural sunblock?
Mineral makeup provides natural, broad-spectrum UV protection from nature's elements without skin irritation. In a world that's turning to a "green" and a more natural way of living, artificial chemicals and preservatives are being left behind. Earth-based minerals are a wonderful alternative to chemical-laden cosmetics. Mineral Fusion makeup contains Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide th:" ":tween them when it comes to cosmetics is how they are processed and refined. Mineral Fusion uses an Italian triple mill process, making them the finest quality possible. Using minerals any finer than that (nano-particles) can clog your pores instead of staying on the surface.
Mineral make up lines that claim to be 100% pure. Are they?
Minerals in their raw form are pure. Based on the formulation (loose, pressed, liquid), other ingredients are blended with the minerals. This does not change the pureness or the benefits of the minerals; however, the different formulations allow each customer's skin condition needs to be more specifically met.
Does Mineral Fusion makeup work on older or aging skin?
Yes. Because this is a light-reflective cosmetic, it diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles to give a healthy glow to the skin, making it look younger, while matte makeup absorbs light and allows the eye to see “into” the skin.
