The Ingredients

Before we dive into some product highlights, lets talk about the stars of the show and what creates these products that the world has loved and adored. If you haven’t guessed what these ingredients are, well, the name says it all… MINERALS!

Minerals are naturally derived from the Earth. These good-for-you ingredients are essential to the overall health of your body and are a natural component of healthy skin. So, why aren’t we all using mineral makeup yet?!?

Mineral Pigments + Pearls

Mineral pigments and pearls are naturally derived from the earth or synthesized in a lab. These pigments and pearls come in a variety of tones and shades that contribute to the colour, finish and opacity of a product. Mixed together they can create endless shades, intensities and finishes - all with the power of mother nature and science; our kind of mixology! You might be wondering: "what are some of these minerals you speak of?" We are glad you asked! 

Mineral Sunscreen

One product that has been sweeping the beauty landscape in recent years is mineral sunscreen. Derived from naturally occurring minerals, mineral sunscreen delivers powerful protection, yet is gentle on the skin, making it a safe option for those with sensitive skin. It creates a physical barrier to reflect UVA and UVB rays, delivering broad spectrum protection to help against the signs of premature ageing.

Mineral sunscreens contain minerals such as, Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, which are highly effective to protect against a wide range of UVA/UVB and holds a higher affinity for blocking these harmful rays. They are also safe to use in the ocean, so no fishies or corals will be harmed in the process of having fun!

Skin-loving Minerals

Electrolyte minerals like Potassium, Magnesium and Silica can be found in many of bareMinerals products. These skin-loving minerals help the skin attract and hold onto plumping hydration. They also help to blur the look of fine lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores.

Besides these minerals mentioned, many of bareMinerals products also include botanicals, boosters and antioxidants that will aid in the health of your skin with every use. So basically - it's makeup and skincare mixed together to create fantastic, good-for-you cosmetics at an affordable price point.
