About Our Mineral Cosmetics: Many store-bought cosmetics are full of preservatives, and ingredients that can be quite unkind to the skin. We’ve found that they often contain bismuth oxychloride which is a cheap, bulk-filler. This ingredient adds a “shine” to foundations that many women dislike. It is also a known skin irritant which does nothing to improve the surface layers of the skin. Our Cocoa Mineral Foundation does NOT contain bismuth oxychloride. If you’ve ever tried a mineral foundation which irritated your skin, it may have been formulated with this ingredient.
It’s our experience that with continued use of our mineral products, you’ll find that the condition of your skin may improve. This is because we formulate with high quality, skin healing ingredients. You also generally need less makeup than typical products … thus you achieve a more natural presentation.
Directions for Application:
To apply cocoa mineral foundation: using a wide brush, apply a small amount of foundation powder in circular motions. Then, allow the first layer to set for a few seconds. Apply as many layers as needed until your desired color is achieved. Some women like to set their foundation with a fine mist spray (lavender or rose hydrosol water work well) though others find that their natural skin oils set their make-up just fine.
The trial size will arrive in a small baggie, that will last you several applications.
The 5 gram size will arrive in a clear, round container with a sifter top for easy product dispensing.
