Whether they are our cousins, sisters, daughters or friends, we all want our teenagers to have the best memories of their life when they are young.
After all, you are only young once.
And when you are young and blossoming, makeup is almost a natural consideration.
Concerns have been raised about the ingredients found in many major makeup brands.
The informative site safecosmetics.org shares a few of those concerns. “Not listed on ingredient labels, 1, 4-dioxane is a contaminant linked to cancer found in products that create suds, such as shampoo and liquid soap.
Concerns about organ-system toxicity and endocrine disruption led the European Union to prohibit the preservative butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) from cosmetics.
Heavy metals like lead, arsenic, mercury, are contaminants found in a wide variety of personal care products including lipstick, whitening toothpaste, eyeliner and nail color.”
The list goes on. It’s an article worth reading. Here is the link.
So what is an alternative that has gained popularity?
Many advocate use of Mineral Makeup.
Mineral make-up is made up of minerals such as iron oxides, talc, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. They are ground and milled or broken into very tiny particles to create the make-up. Traditional make up uses preservatives like parabens, chemical dyes and fragrances. Mineral make-up leaves these out.
Mineral make-up has been around for decades but these days with more women looking for natural products it’s never been more popular.
Some dermatologists recommend mineral make-up because it’s free of chemicals and additives which can cause skin irritation.
