Elemental Beauty mineral makeup is anti microbial and anti inflammatory. These two properties are ideal for soothing skin conditions such as rosacea and acne, and this makeup allows all women to feel beautiful without the worry of their skin condition worsening. Due to the light reflective minerals and ingredients in the makeup, fine lines appear minimised and you are left with healthy looking, radiant skin.
Our mineral makeup contains ingredients that act as a natural sunscreen. This can help protect against harmful UV rays. It is of course still important to wear an SFP-containing cream when exposed to daylight. It is therefore an excellent option to apply the make-up over a layer of sunscreen, for further protection of the face.
Here is a bit more information about our carefully chosen, chemist approved, natural ingredients:
Titanium Dioxide – For great coverage and a natural UV block to protect skin
Zinc Oxide – has wonderful healing properties and is anti-septic, anti-microbial, and fungicidal, so it can act as a treatment for sensitive or inflamed and blemish prone skin. Zinc Oxide offers protection from the sun by sitting on top of the skin scattering and absorbing the harmful rays, both UVA & UVB and is beneficial in reducing pre-mature aging of the skin & skin cancer due to its broad spectrum sunscreen.

Kaolin also aids in healing these skin problems.
