<span >What is mineral makeup - what are other makeups made from? Mineral Makeup is essentially ground up rocks and minerals from the Earth that are safe on the skin and even offer sun protection and other positive qualities including a beautiful appearance. Makeups have often used natural ingredients in their formulations but these have often been mixed with irritating and potentially toxic preservatives, fillers and other chemicals. Are these added for the benefit of your skin - no. These are added to extend shelf life and to fill up or bulk up a product in some cases. They are added for profit - not to benefit the customer.Mineral makeup is so unique and amazing because being a dry powder form, minerals do not need preservatives or other additives to keep them fresh and long lasting.

<span >Do ECO minerals makeup contain talc? <span ><span ><span ><span >Sounds safe enough - but here is the lowdown " <span ><span ><span >As an ingredient, talc it is very cheap so offers great profit margin for producers, however it offers no benefit for the skin and can in fact cause problems. The main disadvantages of talc as a cosmetic ingredient is its comedogenic effect which means it will clog skin and block pores. Those particularly affected by this will be people with acne, pimples, rosacea and anyone who has undergone cosmetic treatments. Talc can also have an occlusive effect on the skin, trapping heat and toxins and eventually interrupting the normal function of the skin."
<span >How natural are the ingredients - is ECO minerals 100% natural?<span >ECO minerals is created only from pure minerals from the Earth. There is no need for chemicals preservatives because the minerals are in a powder form. We choose only minerals that are beneficial to the skin and safe for your health. Remember, not all natural ingredients are considered safe and not all natural ingredients are beneficial to your skin. <span >Pure minerals also offer the highest natural sun protection.

<span ><span ><span ><span ><span >Is ECO minerals mineral makeup certified organic? <span ><span ><span ><span >True mineral makeup can be 100% safe and natural, but by most leading certification bodies, can not be certified organic. This is because, like salt and water, minerals are "made" by the Earth. They are not farmed or grown and as such they can not be officially certified. <span ><span ><span ><span ><span >Some mineral makeups are certified organic and this may be because they contain herbs and other ingredients primarily - for example rose petals and corn starch and rice powder.<span ><span ><span ><span ><span >We believe that the best mineral makeup (looks the best, feels the best and is best for the skin) is made from pure minerals...and we do not add botanical ingredients so we can be certified organic.<span ><span ><span ><span ><span >We do love and support certified organic skin care...and certified organic food<span ><span ><span ><span ><span > - just not certified organic mineral makeup!

<span ><span ><span ><span ><span >Nano particles - what are they and does ECO minerals contain nano particles in their natural makeup?<span ><span ><span ><span ><span >Nano particles are tiny particles that are so small they are rarely found in nature and the jury is out on the risks...however studies show that these are potentially dangerous as these tiny particles can make their way through our skin into our blood and liver very quickly and in short, our bodies are not made to deal with such tiny particles.<span ><span ><span ><span >To be safe, ECO minerals avoid the use of nano particles (also called micronised particles) - they simply are not necessary to bring you the best mineral makeup (look, feel and effect) for your skin.
