Are Mineral Makeups Really Healthier?
So the latest trend in beauty products is mineral makeup. But are they really more pure and natural?
Mineral makeup brands tend to eliminate irritants like fragrances, binders, synthetic dyes and preservatives. However, it's important to recognize that not all manufacturers do this; any product containing minerals can be marked as mineral makeup, even if it contains other not-so-natural ingredients.
So it's up to you to determine what's pure and what's not. Look at the ingredient label first (anything ending with "paraben" is a bad sign), and don't be fooled by the words “all natural” or “mineral formula”.
