Mineral Cosmetics

Many women want a flawless and younger looking skin. Sadly the advertisements for traditional cosmetics, frequently relayed on popular media frustrate the achievement of this goal. Mineral cosmetics have advantages but they are not widely accepted. That is because people think mineral cosmetics are inferior. About cosmetics, it is normally believed that a person doesn’t get the treatment and look of their choice. This article details information about mineral cosmetics and their benefits.

Mineral and natural cosmetics are usually regarded as being same. Though there are similarities between them, in reality they are 2 different types of skincare products. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration defines a product as “natural” if its ingredients are obtained from plants or animals. But any product containing stabilizers (additives) of color obtained from earth are regarded as mineral cosmetics. E.g. an ingredient contained in mineral cosmetics is titanium oxide. It is normally used in face powders to make different shades of color.

A major advantage of mineral cosmetics is that they are water- resistant. Unlike traditional cosmetics that stick and flow in water, mineral cosmetics remain on your skin, retaining the perfect skin tone you want to have. Another advantage of using mineral cosmetics is that you keep out the toxic chemicals from the body. Using mineral cosmetics means you are using natural elements, thus giving you a natural look. Traditional cosmetics use unnatural chemicals, so they can block your pores and lead to blemishes, or in severe cases cancer. The lesser the number of chemicals you put on your body, lower are your chances of suffering from cancer.

Another benefit of using mineral cosmetics is that you improve the health of your skin. The natural ingredients in mineral cosmetics provide a healing effect and thus alleviate skin conditions like skin damage and acne. Dermatologists usually prohibit people suffering from these skin conditions from using traditional cosmetics, since they can deteriorate the conditions. Mineral cosmetics also moisturize your skin naturally. Hence this is an excellent solution for those having very dry skin.

The two disadvantages of mineral cosmetics are cost and availability. The process of getting and adding the required ingredients to mineral cosmetics is expensive. The Internet offers little relief as companies advertising there don’t have steep overheads, thus allowing them to offer you lower prices. The best way to find these products is to visit a health food store. These stores usually stock different types of mineral cosmetics and their staff is highly knowledgeable, thus answering any of your doubts. In case, there is no health food store near you, carry out an online search to locate companies selling mineral cosmetics and ask for a catalog.
