Our formulations contain Vitamins A, C & E plus Green Tea to protect and nurture the skin. We are pioneers in creating new mineral-based formulations & products and we are constantly enhancing formulas with the newest and most beneficial ingredients - Ex: Satin II fountations contain Malachite and Venuceane.
Yes, you can. A heavier application provides stronger physical protection against the penetration of UV rays.
They are physically tested by laying minerals on the skin and measuring the penetration of UV in to the dermis. UV protective ingredient levels in the formulas are also tested.
No animals are harmed or endangered to create our brushes. Hair is attained through grooming the animals.
Our pigments are derived from mineral mines all over the world. The rocks are pulverized into particles, then sanitized so they can be used in the products.
We use: Mica from India, Titanium Dioxide from US, Canada, Australia, Iron Oxides from India, Ultramarines from Germany, Manganese Violet from Germany, Carmine from Spain.
It’s a process used refine particles so that ultimately, they lay better on the skin for superior coverage. For example, think of how pebbles look in a glass jar vs. sand in a glass jar. The sand looks smoother and more refined than the pebbles. Light is able to penetrate through larger particles, and is not able to do so when the particles are smaller. The same holds true for makeup that is not triple milled versus makeup that is. In addition, glo.minerals begins wtih the smallest particles available as a raw material—and then triple mills them.
They are water resistant.
No, glo.minerals makeup is talc-free. Talc is the number one ingredient in traditional makeup. Talc is a filler/bulking agent. It clogs pores and suffocates the skin which can lead to acne, exacerbate rosacea and other undesirable skin conditions.
We use pure rich pigments from the earth. This means less product needs to be applied to see more product on the skin. glo.minerals makeup lays on the surface of the skin and allows your skin to breathe and function as though your skin were bare. It is more beneficial to wear glo.minerals than to wear nothing at all.
The #1 complaint about mineral makeup is that is can look heavy. This is because people apply it the same way they apply product with talc. Using our brushes and applying multiple layers of sheer coats allows many levels of coverage. Brushes will alter the coverage of a product. The longer the hair is on a brush, the more sheer the product application will be.
