Skin Care Makeup
The most beautiful cosmetic you can wear is a healthy skin. That's why everything we develop is a true extension of skin care. Our makeup is not just a refinement of conventional makeup; it's a new technology. It's so effective it is recommended by plastic surgeons, dermatologists and skin care professionals.
Our makeup is non-

Our micronized mineral bases are concentrated pigment. (We use no fillers such as talc.) Because of this concentrated pigment, a minimum amount gives unsurpassed coverage and becomes a foundation, powder and concealer all in one. This concentrated pigment also gives high sunscreen protection without the need for synthetic ingredients.
Because of the micronization process our mineral particles undergo, they bind together on application. When applied to a clean, moisturized skin the surface tension this creates overcomes gravity and holds the minerals tightly to the skin. The result is that they resist running, creasing and smearing and will only come off with a cleanser or our Magic Mitt. No special cleanser is required.
Minimum Allergy Risk
Allergies and sensitivities usually occur because of ingredients that cause irritation
to the skin. Reactions are particularly common in skins that have been compromised
in some fashion through, for example, a weakened immune system, sun damage, chemical
peels, laser resurfacing, etc. Substances that most commonly cause these sensitivities
are chemical preservatives, chemical dyes (usually labeled as FD&C), perfume and
alcohol. Our makeup contains none of these sensitizers. In fact, zinc oxide and titanium
dioxide are anti-
All our individual Material Safety Data Sheets of raw materials in our powder bases support that irritation, burning and stinging of the skin are not caused by our ingredients. Further, our processing does not result in any chemical change in the raw materials, so the reaction of the mixed ingredients remains the same as the individual ingredients. We have eliminated from our powders all perfume, chemical dyes and chemical preservatives. These are the top three sensitizers.
When the letters FD&C precede a color, it means that the color has been approved by the FDA for use in foods, drugs and cosmetics. When D&C precede the colour, it signifies that it can be used only in drugs or cosmetics. FD&C dyes are derived from petroleum or historically coal tar; some are also synthetic.
We have a number of ingredients in our formulas that actively calm the skin. Two
in particular are titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, both have anti-
The word "pigment" usually means a colored or white compound that is insoluble in a solvent. (The word "dye" generally refers to a chemical compound, most often of petroleum origin, which is soluble.) Our pigments are made from micronized minerals only. Because the minerals are concentrated pigment, they give complete coverage. A little goes a long way!

to achieve. First-
