Frequently Asked Questions
What is mineral makeup?
Rather than being oil or petroleum-based, true mineral makeup is made of earthen minerals, milled to a very fine powder.
Why is mineral makeup better than traditional makeup?
Mineral cosmetics reflect light – like millions of tiny diamond mirrors – to hide fine lines and discolourations. Unlike traditional cosmetics, which coat the skin with a layer of film, mineral makeup allows your skin to breathe and function naturally. In fact, Youngblood was originally developed for use in a medical setting, to help patients’ skin breathe and heal after harsh surgical procedures.
High quality mineral makeup should not clog pores, and should feel like you have no makeup on at all. It should contain no synthetic or irritating ingredients, such as alcohol, artificial fragrance, mineral oil, talc, or petroleum.
What sets Youngblood apart from other mineral lines?
Youngblood is the premier choice for high-quality mineral cosmetics. An exclusive milling process creates luxurious formulations that are free of talc, oil, parabens and fragrance.
Clients have continuously claimed that Natural Mineral Foundation performs better than other brands, and is available in a range of realistic, natural-looking shades for women all around the world. It feels incredibly silky and lightweight; is non-comedogenic (won’t block pores); and allows skin to breathe.
Unlike other mineral products, Youngblood isn’t glittery. Skin radiates a natural, healthy glow, resulting in a younger-looking, flawless complexion.
What are the main differences among Youngblood’s foundations?
Each Youngblood foundation offers a variety of finishes and levels of coverage to meet the different needs of our customers. Natural Mineral Foundation offers maximum coverage and camouflaging capabilities with a subtly radiant finish. Pressed Mineral Foundation provides a soft-matte finish and is recommended for those with oily or combination skin. It’s ideal for touching up shiny breakthrough. Liquid Mineral Foundation is best suited for normal to dry skin types. It contains marine extracts to keep skin hydrated. Mineral Radiance Moisture Tint is a sheer, lightweight alternative to liquid foundation. Mineral Radiance Crème Powder Foundation combines the great coverage and light-reflecting qualities of a liquid foundation with the shine-controlling benefits of a powder.
Youngblood’s loose foundation can also be “liquefied” by mixing with facial moisturizer, Mineral Primer, sunscreen or body lotion.
Does Youngblood use bismuth oxychloride in its formulas?
Yes, a few of our products contain bismuth oxychloride (a derivative of bismuth). This ingredient undergoes a thorough filtering process to ensure safety. We use a pharmaceutical grade of bismuth oxychloride for its performance: to provide smoothness, help makeup wear longer, give skin a nice glow and as a colorant.
For best results, it’s important always to use a clean brush and avoid over buffing, especially if skin is sensitive or is healing from a procedure. Our Flocked Sponge, Liquid Foundation Brush or Super Powder Brush are designed to offer the most gentle applications.
What about nano-particles?
Youngblood does not use nano-particles. Our pharmaceutical grade Titanium Dioxide is non-nano, and used for opacity, color and its UV properties.
Our customers’ wellbeing is the reason why we research to find safe and effective ingredients to use in our products. We are advocates for following a healthier lifestyle, including the use of our high-quality skin-caring mineral products as part of a beauty regimen.
Do Youngblood foundations have an SPF rating?
The number one ingredient in Youngblood’s Natural Mineral Foundation is Titanium Dioxide, a natural sun protectant that physically “blocks” UVB (burning) and many UVA (aging) rays. Titanium Dioxide tends to be better tolerated by most skin types because chemical filters used in chemical sunscreens can be irritating for many people.
Since protective levels depend on application and will vary (i.e., lighter coverage offers less protective benefits than a heavier application), Youngblood doesn’t assign a Sun Protection Factor to its products. However, in laboratory measurements, the loose and liquid foundations are comparable to a minimum of SPF 15.
Many mineral companies claiming SPF 15 or higher in their products use Zinc Oxide as an active ingredient. Most consumers are unaware that Zinc Oxide is a drying agent. Youngblood doesn’t formulate with Zinc Oxide to keep products hydrating. The addition of other sun protectant ingredients can also feel heavy and clog pores. To maintain the luxurious, lightweight look and feel of our products and keep them non-clogging, we do not supplement our formulas with additional sun protectants.
