Mineral makeup has been gaining popularity and a name for itself, all for good reason! Complied into a fine powder form, mineral makeup can be an amazing alternative to traditional makeups not only for its non-clogging properties but also skin-loving ingredients. Most mineral makeups contain ingredients that are able to treat skin during its time of application. We spend so much time investing in the best skincare products for our skin but don’t realize the harmful effects some makeups can have.

Mineral makeup offers ‘cleaner’ ingredients meaning its free from parabens, fragrances, and synthetic dyes. This is compared to regular makeup brands which contain harmful fillers which aim to extend the shelf life or more of a suitable consistency. The chemical preservatives can wreak havoc on some skins, causing sensitivity, ageing, irritations and more. Fragrance can also (unnecessarily) be added which leads to redness, rosacea, acne, or dehydrated skin. Some ingredients in makeup almost act like a glad-wrap film is being placed over your face – there’s no way for your skin to breathe. This leads to clogging which shows as blackheads, whiteheads, and acne. Mineral makeup on the opposite hand can treat all of these aggravations. You can see why so many people love to go on about mineral makeup – the proof is in the pudding! Most mineral makeups are safe to use post-treatment in the clinic too.

Mineral makeup is great and suitable for all skin types. Acne and oily skin types especially are ideal candidates for mineral makeup due to its non-clogging and calming properties.

Big benefits of mineral makeup:


  • No fillers, toxic preservatives, or perfumes.
  • Helps protect skin from premature ageing.
  • Weightless & mineral-enriched, providing UVA, UVB & Blue Light protection.
  • Feels & looks natural – suitable for men too.
  • Helps minimise uneven skin tone.
  • Builds from light to medium coverage soft radiance.
  • Vitamin-infused formulation.
  • Adaptable range of colours.

Mineral makeup is the clear winner in our eyes for a multitude of reasons. We suggest making the switch to healthier, smoother and more radiant skin!
