Faerie Minerals are non-comedogenic and non acneogenic. Our mineral foundations are naturally anti-inflammatory due to the minerals zinc oxide and titanium dioxide which help to reduce redness and inflammation.

Our minerals are widely promoted by dermatologists and Naturopaths due to their gentle, healing nature and are safe for even the most sensitive, allergy/acne prone skin.
Faerie Minerals foundations stay on all day so you do not have to constantly re-apply, they also contain a natural occurring SPF of approx 15 due to the mineral based sunscreens titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.
Faerie Minerals foundations blend unwanted lines and pores to a flawless finish. We suggest use of our approved Mineral Brushes for the best results possible.
Faerie Organic foundations are interchangeable, If your color is too light, simply add a tap of a darker color... The same goes if your color is too dark... add a tap of a lighter color to lighten it.
All Faerie Minerals ingredients are 100% pure mineral ingredients.
Summary of Ingredients
-Mica is a natural mineral from the earth that has light reflecting properties. It can create the illusion of a softer, more radiant skin tone. It minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines giving a more perfect skin appearance. Mica can be sheer, opalescent, glittery or matte.
-Titanium Dioxide is a natural SPF mineral that provides protection against UVA and UVB rays. Titanium Dioxide is what provides "coverage" in foundations due to it being an opaque mineral. Titanium Dioxide has high anti-inflammatory properties that helps reduce skin irritation and redness, making it essential for those with acne or rosacea. It is highly reflective (think reflecting diamond like properties, it bounces light off your skin, which is how it protects you from the sun) and minimizes fine lines and imperfections. *We do not use Micronized Titanium Dioxide as micronized particles are a health concern due to the small particle size they can be easily absorbed into cells.
-Iron Oxides are natural opaque mineral pigments from the earth that have been purified to be safe for human skin. These are used to create the colors in natural mineral makeup.
-Zinc Oxides- also a natural SPF mineral that soothes irritated skin due to the anti-inflammatory properties. This is an important ingredient for those with skin conditions such as acne or rosacea. Zinc Oxide gives high coverage, has water resistant properties and aids in adhesion.
*We do not use Micronized Zinc Oxide as micronized particles are a health concern due to the small particle size they can be easily absorbed into cells.
-Ultramarine Blue is a natural vivid blue mineral pigment that has been processed and purified to be safe for skin.
-Kaolin Clay is a natural clay from the earth that has been used for centuries in cosmetics, dating as far back as the Chinese empire and Cleopatra. Kaolin provides great coverage, refines pores, absorbs oil and aids in those with acne prone skin. Kaolin has soothing properties that make it great for sensitive skin and is appropriate for all skin types, even those with dry skin.
-Sericite-is a sheer mica mineral that has light reflecting properties that can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and make pores seem to disappear. Sericite has fade proof- water resistant qualities.
-Boron Nitride- This high end expensive diamond like mineral is said to have anti-bacterial properties, that can be very beneficial to those with acne prone skin. BN provides broad UVA/UVB protection, is oil absorbing, glides on smoothly, offers good makeup adherence, minimizes wrinkles and aids in the maximum staying power of makeup.
