Q. What is Mineral Makeup?
A. Mineral makeup, in its purest form, is makeup that comes directly from the minerals of earth.
Q. Why is Mineral Makeup better than Traditional Cosmetics?
A. Almost all traditional cosmetics contain chemicals and harmful ingredients. Read the ingredients label of any conventional foundation or powder and you will find a long list of ingredients, some of which you can't even pronounce! Most of the ingredients are petroleum-derived chemicals. Some of these ingredients, such as talc and mineral oil, are even harmful to your skin and your general health in the long run. Other ingredients, such as perfumes, oils, fragrances and dyes can irritate very sensitive skin.
Q. What Makes Jardé Superior to other Mineral Cosmetics Lines?
A. With top grade ingredients, our products are simply simply pure and gorgeous. They are free from the usual suspects such as:
Parabens and its family!
Mineral oil or any petroleum-derived products
Perfumes, Oils and Fragrances
Q. Do your mineral makeup powders contain nanoparticles?
A. NO. Unlike many mineral makeup brands, Jardé Minerals does not use nanoparticles ingredients in its products. We are well aware that nanoparticles can potentially cause health risks as the very fine particles can be absorbed through the skin.
Q. Do you test on animals?
A. No. Our products are are animal cruelty free. We have signed the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (www.leapingbunny.org), as well as People for the Ethical Treatement of Animals (PETA) Consumer Caring project. Part of the cooperation with these organization is receiving confirmation from our suppliers that they do not engage in animal testing.
Q. Do your mineral makeup products provide sun protection?
A. Our products have not been tested for any SPF rating, however, as they contain titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, by nature, they work together to block UVA and UVB rays, delivering broad-spectrum sun protection of at least SPF 15. However, you should always use good moisturiser before applying your mineral makeup powder.
Q. Is Jardé mineral makeup powder suitable for ladies with skin problems such as acne and sensitive skin?
A. Yes - in fact, our mineral makeup can actually be good for acne! Acne-sufferers are usually with two issues - they need makeup to cover acne scars and blemishes, but the problem is, with traditional makeup often makes their acne worse. Our mineral foundation and concealers have just the right amount of coverage to conceal blemishes, acne scars and redness without making you look like you are wearing a mask. Also, our mineral makeup doesn't block pores, is non-comedogenic, anti-inflammatory and oil free. And with ingredients such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide it can help calm down redness and inflammation.
With regards to sensitive skin, Jardé mineral makeup contains ingredients which are very gentle to skin. None of our products contain potential irritants such as perfumes, alcohols, dyes and parabens - so it is safe to use on very sensitive skin, even skin that has recently undergone chemical peels and microdermabrasions. In addition, titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are known anti-inflammatories which can help calm down inflamed skin.
Q. Are your mineral makeup powder suitable for mature skin?
A. Our makeup does not dry out skin or settle into fine lines. Additionally, the light-diffusing properties of our makeup reduces and softens the look of fine lines and wrinkles. If you have very dry skin, it is always good to apply moisturizer first before applying any makeup.
Q. What is the coverage and texture like?
A. With our mineral powder you can achieve the amount of cover that you desire. Different application tools and techniques will bring about different amounts of coverage. For the lightest coverage, dust Jardé mineral foundation with a powder brush lightly all over your face. For medium coverage, you may want to use our Foundation Brush. For heavier coverage, you can use a velour puff or makeup sponge. There are many ways to apply our mineral makeup - there are really no special tools and methods to apply our mineral makeup - you are not limited to the usual advise of 'tap, buff, swirl' method of applying mineral makeup - use whichever way that is convenient for you and what looks best on you.
Q. How long-wearing is your mineral makeup?
A. With Jardé Minerals, you won't need to touch up constantly during the day. Our makeup is also very water-resistant - it won't come off easily when you sweat, making it perfect for humid conditions or for working out in the gym! Even rain won't make it budge! After a light workout, just blot your face dry with a towel. To remove your makeup at the end of the day, a gentle cleanser is sufficient.
