Why no Titanium Dioxide?All of our products contain no Titanium Dioxide as it's a chemically produced product (not "organic " at all) & there is an overwhelming amount of evidence that it is carcinogenic & not photo-stable (meaning that when you expose it to light on your face it creates free radicals that in turn ravage your skin cells) not good if you want to keep your youthful complexion!
Do you use nasty preservatives?No never, all our products are protected with Leucidal preservative, the only preservative I will use on my families skin. Leucidal is a natural extract derived from radishes that have been fermented with Leuconostoc Kimchii (the lactic acid bacteria that is traditionally used to make Kimchi). Leucidal liquid is approved by ECOCERT as a preservative in certified organic cosmetics. The addition of Leucidal ensures that this lotion will be safe & spoil free for 12 months.
Each batch has a 12 month expiry date, but it will be long gone before then!
Why no Vitamin E?We are now a 100% Vitamin E Free Brand.
Our products no longer contain d-alpha Tocopheryl (natural vitamin E). Most natural vitamin E is derived from either soy (which is GMO) or wheat & wheat based products which mean that they can be an allergen for those with gluten sensitivities.
The inclusion of Vitamin E in face creams & cosmetics can cause itchy, dry, red, scaly skin in those with sensitivities. So we have decided to omit Vitamin E from our entire brand. In its place we use the highly nourishing, healing & anti-aging Carrot Seed oil which is a powerhouse of natural Vitamin A, B, C, D, E & beta carotene.
So our products are 100% SAFE for everyone .
Do you use nano particles or micronised particles?No, we never have done & never will.
Why do use airless pump packaging?
Our airless pump bottles ensure no mess & no waste. But the best thing they do is ensure that your mineral makeup remains uncontaminated by bacteria & germs - ensuring a pure product to the last drop.
How do I get more coverage with your products?Everybody has their own personal preferences when it comes to make up & coverage, so we have created matching Titanium Dioxide Free Loose Mineral Foundations to compliment all of our products. This enables you to buff on the loose minerals over the top of your Beauty Balm or foundation & create the depth of coverage you prefer - this is great for covering up acne, discolouration & any imperfections.
When you combine the two products you get a more complete coverage with all of the moisturising & brightening benefits of our liquid products & the beautiful light reflecting & soft airbrushing of the Mineral powder.
Are your products Gluten Free?Yes they are
Are Iron Oxides safe?Iron Oxide is what gives our makeup its colour, without it you just have a lotion. Our Iron Oxides are put through stringent processes to purify them: we believe that purified iron oxides are the safest non toxic FDA-approved colorant for makeup.
Iron oxides are known to be gentle and aren’t known to be allergenic.
Our iron oxides are not nanoparticle or micronized in size to ensure they don't cross the epidermis barrier.
We do not use dyes or synthetic colours in any of our products we always use natural clays & Iron Oxides.
Is MG Naturals Mineral Makeup Safe for pregnant women, breast feeding mothers, teenagers & those undergoing treatment?
Our products are formulated for sensitive skin & do not contain detergents, chemicals & artificial fragrances that can irritate the skin. Our list of ingredients we won't use is far longer than our list of ingredients we will use. Our products are so safe & natural you could eat them, but we don't recommend it!
I & many other pregnant & breastfeeding women have used MG Naturals makeup with no irritation or ill-effects. Our makeup is non-toxic and safe for mothers to wear, as you don't have to worry about it rubbing off on your babies tender skin or being ingested when you receive sloppy kisses :)
While many of our customers are still in their formative years and many women come to us because pregnant and cognizant of ingredients, please contact your health (doctor, midwife) professional with any relevant questions or concerns, because it goes without saying "I am not a Doctor"
Is the Carrot Seed Oil you use safe for Pregnant Women?
Yes it is, it is often recommended that you should avoid Carrot Seed Essential Oil during pregnancy. All of our formulas use Organic, Cold Pressed Carrot Seed Oil so they have all the skin loving goodness but without the added potency that could pose a risk for some women.
