Mineral foundation in recent years has become beneficial where skin care is concerned. This is all due to the fact that the ingredients have gotten better and more companies are getting conscientious of what they put in these foundations. That is not to say that all foundations are created equal, one still has to be vigilant concerning the ingredient list not to mention the company’s full disclosure.
Monave Mineral Makeup made the decision from inception to use ingredients that were benign and beneficial to the skin. To that end our mineral foundation is produced with the highest quality ingredients possible. Two of our main ingredients are Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide. Titanium dioxide is a naturally occurring oxide that has a variety of uses, from toothpaste to ceramics to sunscreens. Titanium Dioxide has a high refractive index and strong UV light absorbing capabilities. The other important ingredient is Zinc Oxide it blocks both UVA and UVB rays and is water resistant. Both of these ingredients cannot be absorbed into the skin so they are non irritating and non allergenic.
However, sunscreens today use micronized particles of Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide which does get absorbed into the skin. There is a theory that these nano particle sized ingredients gives rise to cellular malfunction causing cancer. Monave Mineral Makeup does not use micronized particles in our regular loose mineral foundations making them safer for the skin.
With all these wonderful factors is it any wonder that mineral foundation is best when used in place of a conventional sunscreen? Pick up yours today for the health of your skin.
