My wife bought some natural mineral makeup a few weeks ago and after trying it out for a little while, she gives it a thumbs up! She has tried many different kinds, most available at Whole Foods and Wild Oats, but she took a shot with this company through their website and is very happy she did. The company is called Alima Cosmetics, and here is how they describe their mineral makeup:
Alima Cosmetics are formulated with finely milled premium cosmetic-grade minerals and pigments. Mica provides subtle reflective properties to enhance the appearance of the skin; titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are pigments that give sun protection and anti-inflammatory benefits; and iron oxides add beautiful, natural color. In general, mineral cosmetics are gentle, protective, and long lasting. They are free of parabens, bismuth oxychloride, phthalates, talc, preservatives, dyes, carmine, salicylates, fragrances and other ingredients that could irritate or aggravate sensitive skin or compromise your health.
Their products are not tested on animals and last indefinitely…after all, they are made from rocks! Anyway, just thought I would pass that along to anyone looking for another option for non-toxic makeup. My wife really likes the makeup from these guys, and she has had trouble finding a natural product that actually worked. Oh, and she wanted me to let you know that you can order sample sizes to both try them out and to see how different pigments match your skin tone! Alima Cosmetics
