Mineral Cosmetics are not new. People have been using it for thousands of years. Men and women alike have been painting their bodies with “earth colours” since ancient times, think Aboriginal tribes painting their skin before ceremonies or Cleopatra underlining her eyes with Black Kohl or using ground pigments like red ochre to colour her lips and cheeks.
As beauty legend has it, it was the mid-1970s, in the aftermath of the frenzied peace love-ins of San Francisco, that a quiet, little cosmetic revolution was born. It was called “mineral makeup” – products made of all natural, finely ground minerals from the earth, without any of the chemicals, dyes, and preservatives found in traditional makeup. Fast-forward some 30 years: Mineral makeup is virtually exploding the beauty market.
In more recent years, conventional methods have led to the development of not-so-natural cosmetics full of chemicals and unhealthy, often carcinogenic, ingredients. Mineral makeup gets back to basics, using naturally occurring, safe minerals, ground to a fine powder, as the makeup base.
