2. How does Glo get their colors?
The pigments are derived from mineral mines all over the world. The rocks are pulverized into particles and sanitized so they can be used in the products.
They use: Mica from India, Titanium Dioxide from US, Canada, Australia, Iron Oxides from India, Ultramarines from Germany, Manganese Violet from Germany, and Carmine from Spain.
3. What does triple milled mean?
It’s a process used refine particles so that ultimately, they lay better on the skin for superior coverage. For example, think of how pebbles look in a glass jar vs. sand in a glass jar. The sand looks smoother and more refined than the pebbles. Light is able to penetrate through larger particles, and is not able to do so when the particles are smaller. The same holds true for makeup that is not triple milled versus makeup that is. In addition, glo.minerals begins with the smallest particles available as a raw material—and then triple mills them.
4. Does Glominerals makeup contain talc?
No, glo.minerals makeup is talc-free. Talc is the number one ingredient in traditional makeup. Talc is a filler/bulking agent. It clogs pores and suffocates the skin which can lead to acne, exacerbate rosacea and other undesirable skin conditions.
They use pure rich pigments from the earth. This means less product needs to be applied to see more product on the skin. glo.minerals makeup lays on the surface of the skin and allows your skin to breathe and function as though your skin were bare. It is more beneficial to wear glo.minerals than to wear nothing at all.
5. What is the best way to apply and wear mineral makeup?
The #1 complaint about mineral makeup is that is can look heavy. This is because people apply it the same way they apply product with talc. Using the brushes and applying multiple layers of sheer coats allows many levels of coverage. Brushes will alter the coverage of a product. The longer the hair is on a brush, the more sheer the product application will be.
