How do mineral cosmetics differ from other types of makeup?
Most all makeup companies use a small amount of minerals for product pigment. However, instead of using
100% of these natural ingredients for products, they use filler ingredients such as fragrance, dyes, talc,
parabens, bismuth oxychloride, etc.  Filler ingredients are often irritants to our skin and hazardous to our
health.  Mineral cosmetics are a beautiful and safer solution to our makeup needs.

Zinc oxide provides water resistant properties that makes mineral makeup excellent for woman with active
lifestyles and those living in areas with extreme weather conditions such as heat or rain that often cause
liquid makeup “melt” or “run” off the face (especially women with oily skin).  Despite this quality, mineral
makeup is easily removed with a gentle cleanser and water.
Can you offer any advice on mineral makeup application?

How good is the coverage of your Earth Diva mineral foundation?
Earth Diva mineral foundation offers excellent coverage for a variety of skin conditions such as acne and
rosacea. To be specific, this is a breakdown of the ingredients in our mineral foundation and some of the
benefits they provide:

  • Mica: a natural mineral that reflects light from the face making skin appear smoother. It softens fine
    lines and makes skin texture appear more even and lucid.
  • Titanium Dioxide: A natural mineral with ant-inflammatory properties, helping reduce skin irritations
    and redness. Also minimizes the appearance of fine lines and skin discolorations.  Provides natural
    protection (SPF 15) against UVA and UVB rays.
  • Zinc Oxide: A natural mineral that calms irritated skin and helps with certain skin conditions such as
    rosacea. Provides high coverage and adhesion, natural SPF, and water resistant properties.
I have sensitive skin. How can Earth Diva mineral make-up help me?
Earth Diva mineral makeup contains no artificial fillers or fragrances.  Our products are free of potential
irritants that even many mineral makeup companies use:
Bismuth Oxychloride (a non-naturally occurring
mineral that can cause extreme itchiness and irritation) and
Talc (a mineral that can often irritate sensitive
skin).  For more information regarding our ingredients,

greatly benefit from Earth Diva mineral face makeup.
Your products are vegan. What does that mean?

ingredients and have not undergone any animal testing. All of our products are vegan and cruelty-free, while
other mineral makeup companies use ingredients such as
carmine, a pigment obtained from the carminic
acid produced by
insects.  Yuk!  Our makeup brushes are vegan as well; We do not support the use of
animal hair or fur for cosmetic purposes.
