    We love it when our customers want to learn more about what they're putting on their skin. Here you'll find the complete ingredient list for everything we make. Pure, simple, good stuff! • No Parabens • No Chemicals • No Gluten • No Dyes • No Nanoparticles Still, unless you're a geologist familiar with the minerals in nature, you may find some terms unfamiliar. We've done our best to offer a description. Bismuth oxychloride (BOC) to provide shimmer, but for some people it can be a serious skin and respiratory irritant. Ferric Ferrocyanide : an inorganic mineral salt used to provide a rich blue color. Cosmetic-grade ferric ferrocyanide is approved for use on the eyes and face Iron Oxides : inorganic compounds created from purified, oxidized iron. Iron oxides range in shade from yellow to red, brown and black. Kaolin : a hydrated aluminum silicate, also known as china clay. It's very pure, soft and matte, and is highly prized for its gently absorptive properties and lustrous feel. Mica : an inorganic, colorless silicate mineral that provides luster and adhesion. We use mica in most of our cosmetics for its luxurious silkiness and subtly reflective properties. It's available in many grades, some known as “sericite” or matte, that range in textures from matte to shimmery. Titanium Dioxide : a naturally occurring oxide of titanium, generally used as a pigment. Cosmetics grades are extremely pure and highly prized as an effective nonchemical sunscreen. Ultramarines : a blue inorganic mineral pigment composed of complex sodium aluminum sulfosilicates. Zinc Oxide : an inorganic chemical compound found in nature as zincite. Refined zinc oxide is used in cosmetics as a white pigment, and is highly prized as a nonchemical sunscreen. It is also regarded as anti-microbial and anti- inflammatory .
  • Do mineral cosmetics work for all skin types?
    Yes. If you are prone to breaking out, have sensitive skin, chemical sensitivities or even Cosmetic Intolerance Syndrome (CIS),the gentle minerals in our cosmetics are likely to be beneficial. In addition, minerals form a protective barrier on the surface of the skin rather than cross the dermal barrier as some liquid cosmetics do. Mineral makeup works well for both oily and dry skin, so your skin can breath. For those with sensitive skin be sure to do a PATCH TEST . Apply a small amount of the product to the inner wrist or behind the ear. Only apply if your skin shows no sign of irritaion.
  • Can I mix my mineral powders?
    Yes. One of the delights of making mineral cosmetics is their versatility. You can customize your colors by simply combining them.Tweak a product by adding a little bit of another shade and customize your eye colors as desired.The possibilities are endless! This is a great way to play with your pigments as well.
