Mineral Hygienics

October 5th, 2009


A lot of my friends swear once you go mineral makeup, you can’t go back because pure minerals are just that much better for your skin. I agree that if you’ve found a mineral makeup brand that totally works for you, you are likely to stick with it. If you like to experiment with more, there’s a new player on the market for you to consider, Mineral Hygienics. The price for the starter kit is comparable to other mineral makeup kits out there, like Bare Escentuals Get Started Kit $60. What distinguishes Mineral Hygienics from the other ones is that it does not Bismuth Oxychloride. Even though FDA approves the use of Bismuth Oxychloride in both traditional and mineral makeup, apparently it’s not the best ingredient to put on your face. It is safe, but some women can still get an irritating reaction from it. “Your skin may be itching, irritated, red, having small bumps, pustules, burning or looking swollen. A few weeks later you have acne. What is this? How can mineral makeup cause such an extreme reaction? That reaction is likely caused by the ingredient bismuth oxychloride. While bismuth oxychloride is a common ingredient in both traditional and mineral makeup, problems with the ingredient have surface in mineral makeup because it is made with much higher concentrations. There are a lot less fillers in mineral makeup as compared to traditional cosmetics (talc, mineral oil, aluminum powder, alcohols and parabens), so the few ingredients left, most times including bismuth oxychloride, make up more of the recipe.” Mineral Hygienics figured out how to make a better product using fewer ingredients to achieve a flawless coverage. If you have extremely sensitive skin, you might want to try it.
