The Importance of Ingredients
Natural Ingredients are the Safest

Part of your research will be to look for natural ingredients in the foundation makeup. Finding the best foundation makeup all begins with knowing what is inside the makeup and what it does.

Here are some examples:

  • Is the best natural acne treatment a chemical cream or cleanser from your dermatologist?
  • Is zinc oxide a naturally derived ingredient?
  • If yes, does it have any benefit for me?

For this example, here is your answer ... zinc oxide is a natural and harmless ingredient with active properties that is an effective treatment for acne and eczema.

This is a useful feature because this ingredient is already part of the plan to achieve your best foundation makeup.

The best foundation makeup, in its most basic formulation, consists of 4 natural ingredients :

  • Mica
  • Titanium Dioxide
  • Zinc Oxide
  • Iron Oxide

The above is all you need to have a wonderful, healthy and natural skin in its simplest form.

However, from this point onwards, mainstream makeup manufacturers can become very scientific and ruthless in their quest to achieve the best foundation makeup and these are some of the criteria used to achieve their objectives :

  • Profit (Formulating cheap synthetic substitutes to maximise revenue rather than use naturally derived ingredients)
  • The Perfect Look (Formulating chemical compounds in the makeup to achieve flawless complexion. Often these chemical compounds are made from petrochemical derivatives**)
  • Shelf Life (Preservatives are generally manufactured from petrochemical compounds. These preservatives keep the product stable for a long period of time***)

** The counter argument of using petrochemical based compounds in makeup is that the quantities are so small that it will have no effect on the skin or body - this is mostly true if you use it once.

However, let's say you use it for 20 years - 20 years x 365 days = 7 300 approximate usages.

Whatever insignificant amount of toxins the critics say is in the makeup, multiply it by 7300 and you will have an idea of what kind of toxin levels that your body will have to deal with over a period of time.

*** Liquid makeup, especially water-based makeup, is susceptible to bacteria. Bacteria growth is very effective in moist environments.

Skin Absorption

Within a short period of time, your skin can easily absorb up to 60% of what you put on it (a quick example is wrinkly skin after being in the water).

Unfortunately, your body does not expel toxins at the same rate of skin absorption which means that there will be a natural progression of toxin build-up from continued usage.

A simple rule to remember - if you cannot put it in your mouth, it is certainly not good for your skin.

Would you eat your makeup?

Here is an interesting example :

  • if you eat a toxin, some of your internal organs involved with the digestive process will break the toxins down using your natural body enzymes before it gets to the bloodstream and other sensitive organs.
  • your skin skips this process and the toxin enters the bloodstream immediately.

Would you feed your baby toxins?

Of course not.

But consider this, let us assume that you are pregnant and you add a makeup to your skin that contains petrochemical additives as a preservative - you guessed it - you would be sending this additive directly to your baby's bloodstream.
