MakeupFIX Mineral: Information

About Mineral Makeup
Mineral makeup is the term used to describe cosmetics that are made using loose micron size mineral particles. The concept of mineral makeup dates back centuries to the times of ancient Egypt.

Mineral makeup is not available in ‘pressed’ format, as it is very dry and brittle. Pressed cosmetics require a ‘binder’ or glue, it is these very binders used in our regular cosmetics that often cause irritation and inflammation, clogged pores and breakouts.


Mineral makeup should be loose minerals, which do not contain moisture. They are made using a combination of ingredients including micron sized sericite mica, coated mica, titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, clays and iron oxides. They draw their colour from iron oxides and mica.

MakeupFIX contains

Only premium grade Australian organic clays are used in MakupFIX. 
MakeupFIX is a translucent powder, with medium adhesion and provides good coverage. Over application can make pores appear large also.

Preservatives and mineral makeup.
Mineral makeup does not need preservatives (so long as the powder remains dry). Bacteria need water and moisture to breed. However contamination of powders through damp or wet brushes may occur. Ingredients such as cornstarch and rice flower require preservatives to sustain a long shelf life.

Period After Opening is a standard European indicator that must appear on all cosmetic products that are intended for sale in Europe. There are very strict guidelines on this, however dry mineral cosmetics have a 36 months, which is the maximum. Cosmetic products with moisture content such as lipsticks and waxes are usually 12 to 24 months and fluid cosmetics are much shorter being 3 to 12 months. This is also determined by the preservative system used in a cosmetic product.
