Mineral Makeup Allergies (part 1 of 2)


Nowadays, it seems possible to get allergic reaction from anything.  There are women who get allergies from a certain kind of makeup.  With this increasing sensitivity about what we put into our body, women are trying to look for alternative cosmetics that would not provoke an allergic reaction.  That is why most women are opting for mineral makeup.

But even if mineral makeup are chemical and preservative free, it does not mean that users are safe from any allergic reactions.  It is true that there are dermatologists who recommend mineral-based makeup to their patients with skin problems acne, sensitive skin, rosacea and oiliness.  But this is not an assurance that all patients would respond to mineral cosmetics well.

The reason why dermatologists recommend mineral makeup for those with sensitive skin is that is has zinc oxide which is a natural anti-inflammatory drug.  This calms the skin making the skin look refreshed.  Titanium dioxide is also present which protects the skin against the dangerous ultraviolet rays.  Also mineral makeup contains than moisture in the skin, that is why it is talc-free.  Keeping the moisture in makes the skin hydrated and maintain a healthy glow.

With all the benefits and good things you can get from  mineral makeup you should still be conscious when picking out the cosmetic that you would use.  When you are choosing mineral makeup, take notice of the ingredient list.  If the label does not have this information, then research it by talking to a personnel or visiting the company website.

Common cases  of allergies attributed to mineral makeup is almost always connected to bismuth oxycholoride.  This mineral is a product of lead, copper and other metals.  This kind mineral is uncommon.  What is its purpose?  They are included in the makeup because they provide a certain shine.  Bismuth oxychloride is important since it can cover the fine lines and wrinkles customers are trying to hide.
