Why Is Mineral Makeup Without Bismuth Oxychloride Best?

Bismuth Oxychloride Is Still A Problem For Many Women

Women that call and write to us are still confused about the problems with Bismuth Oxychloride found in many commercial brands of mineral makeup. 

Despite our best efforts to disseminate the information on our website, some still don’t find it and / or also have not seen the actual extended article written about the manufacturing of Bismuth Oxychloride which is used in mineral cosmetics, and the safety of its use.  That is the intent of this brief piece, to share the basics, along with providing the resource of how bismuth oxychloride is created in the link above.

Women are not always sure of why their face itches or turns red and inflamed after using brand x of mineral powders.  Or after not having acne since they were a teenager, all of sudden are having recurring bouts of it later in life.  It can be as simple as reviewing the ingredient list on many mineral makeup brands and finding the common denominator to their skin ailments, which in most cases is the ingredient bismuth oxychloride.

This ingredient does give a pearlescent sheen to the face which some women love, including a lot of gals in their 20's or younger.  But for women of mature years, not so much.

Women Love Dewy Finishes

There is a huge difference between a dewy, polished finish and outright shine which can make the face appear greasy.  And the shiny finish highlights fine lines and wrinkles instead of blurring them.  After all, we want our faces to reflect beauty at any age, and a mineral makeup formula such as ours can provide blurring and a luminescent polished finish without appearing flat or chalky.

Mature women can now have their skin look and feel revitalized and renewed once more when using our mineral makeup foundation.

Other Issues With Bismuth Oxychloride

Another reason to avoid mineral makeup products containing Bismuth Oxychloride, it is a heavy by-product mineral that if not applied correctly, will creep and shift making lines into visual runways, aging the face all the more.

So despite the many problems this ingredient causes mineral makeup wearers; cystic acne, rosacea flare-ups, itching, stinging, burning, erythema, inflammation, it is still widely used in a lot of cosmetics including some liquid formulas, it just is not a main ingredient in the liquid form typically.  In minerals, it comprises the bulk of the product including Mica.

Another common factor for women we have heard from are dry, itchy, scaly eyelids.  Again, this can be attributed to the bismuth oxychloride contained within the majority of eye shadows found on the market. 

We sincerely hope that the additional information located within this article has assisted you further for getting the answers to some ongoing skin problems on the face.
