Our Minerals by Annmarie Multi-Purpose Foundation, like all of our products, is free of toxic chemicals and harmful additives. Here’s what’s in it:
- Moisture resistant
- Nontoxic and nonirritating
- Provides the pigment
Titanium dioxide (non-nano)
- Low skin penetration
Zinc Oxide (non-nano)
- Helps the skin look vibrant and fresh
- Oily skin benefits
- Makes the skin look smoother, softer, and more radiant
- Has light reflecting properties
Each shade has a different ratio of the above four ingredients, with each having the highest percentage of iron oxide.
Because the makeup contains titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, it provides a small amount of sun protection. Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are a mineral match made in heaven. That’s why you’ll often seen these two ingredients used in conjunction. Because these two ingredients look white on the skin, nanoparticle versions are often used, because they are less opaque.
There is a lot of debate about whether nanoparticles are a health risk or not. To be safe, we use micronized minerals instead, which do not travel into the bloodstream.
That’s all there is to it! Find out how to use Minerals Multi-Purpose Foundation by Annmarie, according to your complexion, or picking foundation based on your skin tone.
