Why do ALL EARTH mineral Cosmetics NOT contain bismuth oxychloride?

After much research we established that a lot of people find mineral make up can make them feel itchy on their face when they get hot, we discovered that this is down to bismuth oxychloride ingredients that most mineral make up companies use in their products. We have kept this ingredient out.

Do ALl earth Mineral Cosmetics have an SPF?

Certain mineral ingredients in our products cover the skin and reflect UVA and UVB rays, such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide – this is an ideal non-toxic sun protection.  Our mineral foundations have an SPF of 15+ but we always advise to still wear extra sun protection to ensure complete protection from the sun’s rays.

Are ALl earth Mineral Cosmetics organic?

All Earth Minerals are made with pure minerals – ground up rocks.  Because these are not grown, like fruit and vegetables, for example, they can not be certified organic. For a product to be certified as organic, they need to contain 70% of an ingredient like rice powder or corn-starch.  This would diminish the value of the minerals and the make-up would not feel light, give great coverage and would be irritating to the skin and lose the SPF.  When it comes to mineral powder – certified organic is not best.

Do ALl earth mineral Cosmetics products cause breakouts if left on the skin for too long?

Due to the nature of how our products work they shouldn’t cause breakouts, unless there is an allergic reaction to any of the ingredients (please see below). They do not contain any comedogenic (pore clogging) properties and instead lay like a veil on your skin to allow your skin to breath under the product. The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties in the foundations mean that they can heal moderately problematic skin when used regularly.

Are ALl earth Mineral Cosmetics suited to sensitive skin?

All Earth Minerals are very gentle and contain natural anti inflammatory and moisturising ingredients, they can be beneficial to sensitive and problematic skin.  We have not yet had any complaints of allergic reactions to our products. If you are unsure please check our ingredients lists for any ingredient you think you may be allergic to, consult a skin therapist for advice or do a skin test.   We offer refunds if you find you are allergic from the skin test. Even if you have reacted to other mineral loose powder brands it may not mean that you are allergic to ours as they all contain different types and grades of mineral ingredients.  Our 3 in 1 natural face cream has also been created to be kind to the most sensitive of skin.

What is the coverage of ALl earth mineral foundation?

Due to the blend of mineral ingredients our foundations have exceptional coverage depending on how they are applied (please refer to our ‘how to videos’). They will cover rosacea and even out skin tone and, if applied after our 3 in 1 natural  face cream and are applied with our specially designed kabuki brush, they will even out dry and oily patches on the skin. They will cover blemishes but be mindful of scabs from spots, eczema and psoriasis, no product can cover a scab. However due to the natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredients in our foundations they can act as a treatment to problematic skin. Depending on the severity of the skin issue the products can help to clear up blemished skin when used regularly and you would find your skin is healthier and more blemish free in the long term.
