Mineral Makeup

More and more companies advertise mineral makeup with the promise of healthier skin and improved protection from the sun. One of the companies that has been around for a long time is Jane Iredale Mineral Make Up.

Jane Iredale Introduced her makeup in May of 1994. Her makeup line was developed together with plastic surgeons and dermatologists. It is great makeup for after surgery or laser treatments since it conceals and provides essential sun protection important in the post procedure period.

Minerals in makeup are non-comedogenic and will not clog pores, they are virtually hypo-allergenic, provide broad spectrum UVB and UVA protection, can be anti-inflammatory soothing irritated skin, and they can provide good coverage for skin conditions such as acne, rosecea, or laser treated skin.

According to Christina Valhouli and her article in The New York Times, on August 24, 2006, a quality mineral makeup does not contain fragrances, dyes, mineral oil, or preservatives and are therefore very good for people with sensitive skin.
