Allergy to Mineral Makeup

Mineral make-up has been the latest fad in the fashion and beauty industry. Promising a mysterious, ethereal and all natural look this make-up has caught on to the minds of people. The use of organic ingredients is considered to be healthy and natural. Dermatologists recommend mineral-based cosmetics to people with sensitive skin, acne, oily skin and rosacea.

However as the cosmetic industry is self regulated and not controlled or regulated by any outside party which can test the ingredients, the products of those companies that claim to be using minerals but aren't doing so, may show adverse skin effects on the consumers.

Minerals found in the cosmetics

Given below are the following list of ingredients or minerals that are normally found in genuine mineral based cosmetics.

•  Inorganic dyes- these dyes have lower risk to cause an allergy than synthetic dyes that are normally found in some cosmetic products.

•  Iron oxide - generally found on the label as   yellow iron oxide, iron oxide pearl powder, black iron oxide, or brown iron oxide, if used sparingly is not considered to harmful

•  Mica - also known as sericite, or 'mica shimmer particle natural earth pigment is often used to give a touch of glimmer to the products.

•  Natural sunblock or sunscreen- zinc oxide or titanium dioxide are used to protect the skin from the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun.

Doctors suggest mineral-based make-up products as mineral products are fine granulated powder formations and not typical liquid make-up. Powder based make-up does not get absorbed into the skin unlike the liquid based make-up.

What to keep in mind when buying mineral-based make-up products

When you are out in the market intending to buy a mineral-based cosmetic keep the following vital points in mind:

•  There are many companies offering lucrative products that claim to be mineral-based, do not get carried away by their advertisements and marketing strategies.

•  Always buy products of those companies that have been in the market for a considerable number of years, have a reputation to protect and are sensitive to the needs of the consumers.

•  Though there are plenty of companies that offer reputable, trustworthy mineral products, there is no guarantee that one would not develop allergy after using these cosmetic products.

•  It is important to read the product's ingredient list. If there is no list available, consult a salesperson or visit the company's web site for more details.

•  Remember if there are fewer ingredients in the product, then it is a better product. The list can contain from as few as 3 to 8 ingredients.

•  You need to go with your instinct sometimes. Something akin to your instinct when eating. If your mind says something isn't right you stop yourself from eating. In the same way, if you feel that something isn't right or the ingredients listed look suspicious, go with your instinct and resist the temptation of buying it.

Mineral make-up can help create radiant, glowing skin. To prevent the development of allergy to mineral make up all you need to do is to look through the ingredients list before making the right choice.
