What are the components of mineral sleepers?
Already after the name you can say that there are no chemical ingredients in mineral bases, so there are no preservatives, fragrances, colouring substances, waxes, silicones, fillers or various oils. What actually constitutes their basis?
Good quality mineral bases have only a few components. The most common are: iron oxides, zinc oxide, mica, titanium dioxide. Each of them has its own unique function.
Iron oxides are responsible for giving colour, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are responsible for the intensity of this colour (the more of them, the lighter the colour). Titanium dioxide is designed to properly cover the skin, and mica gives the skin a shine and optically smoothes fine wrinkles on the skin.
Of course, all these substances have an additional impact on the health of the skin. Titanium dioxide works as a UV filter. If the skin is too long and often exposed to sunlight, collagen fibres can be destroyed. Therefore, during the summer days it is worth to take care of protecting the skin with a sunscreen. Zinc oxide has an antiseptic effect, it also tightens the skin and allows for drying of eczemas - therefore, the mineral foundation can also be applied on acne skin. The ingredients are found in the cosmetic in the ground form. They do not contain any water, fatty substances or allergens. No mask effect.
For whom are mineral sleepers?
Mineral foundations can be used by women with practically all skin types. It happens that traditional primers are not recommended in case of allergic or acne skin. In the case of mineral cosmetics, there are no such fears, because they do not cause any adverse effects. They have a very delicate formula. If somebody fights eczema, even a dermatologist may recommend the use of primers with a natural composition. Make-up with these cosmetics can be done even after cosmetic treatments, e.g. after diamond microdermabrasion.
