ORGANIC MAKEUP MAKES YOU PRETTY: ZINC OXIDE

ORGANIC MAKEUP INGREDIENTS


WHY TRULY ORGANIC INGREDIENTS KEEP YOU PRETTY...


One of the base ingredients in most Organic Powder Makeup is Zinc Oxide.




Zinc Oxide is one of the safest ingredients for the skin (a natural sunscreen) and protects the skin against harmful ultraviolet sun rays by filtering them out before they can penetrate the skin. It's also very effective in wound healing and can soothe the pain and tenderness of sunburns and chapped skin and helps to repair damaged skin cells.

Zinc is a natural metallic element- like iron or magnesium- and is necessary for skin and body health as it contributes to the immune system and is necessary for collagen formation--- protein synthesis ---and helps the skin to heal.  

It's also powerful astringent and is being used in the natural treatment of acne and breakouts ----simply because---- it effectively and consistently reduces skin irritation and inflammation and it helps to control excess oils ---which maintain the skin's natural moisture balance.

Zinc is heated up to form its compound "zinc oxide" ---which is an oxidized form of Zinc that can be mixed with other creams and compounds to create makeup and skincare products.

Zinc and Zinc Oxide have been used in medicinal applications for centuries and as a topical, it's very effective in treating skin rashes and aid in new tissue growth. Zinc oxide protects the skin from harmful bacteria and has been shown to treat burns, ulcers, abrasions and other irritations of the skin.

Current research also indicates that zinc oxide can be used in the treatment and prevention of acne and other skin disorders. 

Zinc oxide is a natural astringent and anti-inflammatory.  It can minimize skin pores and prevent future breakouts by balancing and regulating facial oil production. Zinc oxide also provides the broad-spectrum sunscreen used in hundreds of sunscreen and makeup/skincare products.  

When we use it as a base of our makeup powders---It's a fine---soft and lightweight powder that provides a sunscreen, controls facial oil, reduces inflammation and puffiness ---and helps to determine the coverage level of most all makeup foundation formulas and skincare products.
