In an effort to bring all that is exceptional in skin health to those that want healthy skin care options I have decided to add Mineral Hygienics to the product offerings at Skin Holistic www.skinholistic.com
I believe this product is an excellent choice for everyone but I believe redheads, sensitive and those with post surgical skin will find this product is a very strong choice.
I got some samples from the company and was very pleased with them. Although at my age I prefer a liquid mineral foundation I had no drying of my sensitive “redhead” skin, no irritation and felt happy with the coverage and appearance of the product. If you are “furry” like I am (with my Finnish heritage) you need to be careful to apply with the grain of the fur (downward strokes) to avoid the product highlighting your furry face, but that is just a technique mastery thing.
Here is some of Mineral Hygienics marketing that made me interested exploring the addition of this product to the Skin Holistic offerings:
Mineral Hygienics is the most natural cosmetic a woman can wear. They are loose powders formulated from crushed minerals extracted from the Earth with no fillers added.
• Does not contain harmful chemical additives, harsh dyes, or man-made fragrances – thus limiting the risk for skin allergies
• Completely free of irritants such as talc, bismuth oxychloride, dyes, parabens, mineral oil, salicylates, carmine, synthetic fragrances, methylparaben, petro-chemicals, and many other questionable chemicals commonly found in other make-up
• Non-organic, inert materials don’t allow mold or fungus to grow, extending the shelf life far beyond most other types of makeup
• Ingredients adhere to the skin’s surface and are not absorbed – so you can have full day coverage without it clogging your pores or building up within your body
• Natural ingredients are recognized by our bodies
• Synergistic blends capable of replenishing, revitalizing, and protecting skin
• So gentle on the skin, it is recommended by Plastic Surgeons, Dermatologists, and Estheticians after plastic surgery, dermabrasion and skin resurfacing
• 100% chemical-free natural protection from the sun’s damaging rays
For a skin health junkie this is music to my ears!
I’ve copied some testimonials for you as well:
Well, first off I was surprised when my order arrived a few days after buying – to Ireland! I have very sensitive, acne-prone skin & the only make-up I could use without fear of break-outs was Bare minerals. I’d learned to get used to the dry, itchy feeling that the BE bismuth oxychloride left me with, but the Mineral Hygienics is a whole new ballgame. I’m very happy with the natural coverage it gives me….& best of all I love that I can’t feel the make-up on. My face feels very soft, all I can feel is the comfort of my moisturizer. I’m a convert for life!! I’m already recommending it left right & center!

Pure, Amazing, Cruelty-Free
I had been using various make ups, both mineral and powder, but wanted to upgrade to something higher quality and cruelty free. I almost bought Bare Escentuals as my friend swears by it. I did a search and read about Mineral Hygienics and was so thrilled to see how few ingredients it contained. I also was educated on bismuth oxychloride and will no longer use any products containing it. I have very sensitive, acne-prone skin and now realize what all those chemicals were doing to my skin. I am also vegan and have been trying to slowly convert to cruelty free products. The only thing I’m waiting for from Mineral Hygienics is all synthetic brushes, which customer service told me was coming soon. The customer service is excellent, by the way. I was really skeptical if it would cover and last, but was very pleasantly surprised. I get SO many compliments on my skin now! Just last night at a wedding I had a lady raving to me about how great my complexion was. I sound like a sales rep because I always say, “It’s this amazing makeup!!”

I love using mineral makeup, but living in TX, found that other minerals would make my face itch like crazy in the summertime heat. I just got my mineral hygienics today (August 19, 101 degrees) and tried it out. I am thrilled to say “no itching” and the coverage is great. I have very fair skin and with other minerals containing bismuth would get (in addition to the itching & irritation) redness that was only exacerbated by the minerals. The coverage with Mineral Hygienics is wonderful (no redness), without being heavy looking, even after being out in the heat. I will gladly recommend Mineral Hygienics to anyone! Thanks!!!

Best Mineral Foundation so far
I bought the starter kit about 6 months ago and have been hooked ever since. Every once in a while I get caught up in make-up ads that promise all these wonderful things and I will buy it (go off my mineral hygienics)and be disappointed. I have very oily skin, so finding something that doesn’t grease out or get patchy and in my laugh lines by the end of the day is hard. I do wish it would last longer during the day,because I don’t like reapplying, but I got the finishing powder this time, so hopefuly that will help. I suggest anyone who is tired of testing out every foundation on the market, to try this. I works well with any kind of facial lotions, under eye creams and facial serums your using. I also blend some of the sun kissed bronzer with the foundation during the summer months to add more color all over.

My Favorite Mineral Makeup Brand
I have been a long-time fan of mineral powder foundations and makeup. I hate the way liquid foundation feels, so when this kind of makeup came on the scene, I was one happy Diva. I’ve tried some great products, and some not-so-great products, but was recently introduced to a new line that has instantly become my absolute FAVORITE new brand: Mineral Hygienics.
This stuff is like BUTTAH. Seriously. It goes on so smooth and silky and gives me the nicest, most natural looking color. I got their starter kit along with their Cool Kiss Mineral Bronzer and Glow Mineral Illuminizer. For a fair-skinned Irish gal like myself, I was duly impressed that the makeup gave me a nice, subtle glow. I looked natural – not orange-y. And the best part? I didn’t need to re-apply all day. The coverage was great all day long. No shine, just a nice, even complexion.
I think the reason that I like these products so much is the texture, though. It’s really, really smooth and silky and super-easy to apply without looking like a cake-y mess.

I have been using another brand of mineral make-up which I loved until I did some research on the effects of bismuth. After much research, I ordered a Mineral Hygienics Starter Kit (very impressed with the idea of the money-back guarantee). I didn’t think I’d find a mineral make-up I’d be as happy with as my previous brand but thought that it would be a worthwhile sacrifice not to be using bismuth. Mineral Hygienics has surpassed my expectations well and truly! The color is perfect, the cover is as full as I like it to be and it has a lovely matte yet radiant finish. It stays on all day and I do not look really shiny after a few hours like I did with my old make-up. Thank you, thank you…I could not be happier!
Testimonial By: Emilie
My skin is 28 years old, very fair with pink undertones – which become more than undertones in my nose area and that is what I need covered up, as well as the occasional pimple and other minor imperfections. I am tired of fluid foundations (MAC, Clinique, Chanel etc.), as they tend to stay a little too fluid on my skin, and wont saturate unless I use plenty of powder, making me look very made up.
So I gave in to the mineral foundation hype and this is what I learned:
I have tried:
Smashbox Halo mineral foundation, their lightest color is too dark, and it gathers around my nostrils, and leaves my nose otherwise not covered and shiny.
Bare Minerals which caked on my skin after a few hours, and the foundation colors are too yellow for my fair complexion.
Lily Lolo also caked on my skin after a few mere hours, and it looked very “makeupy” even though the colors were great. It also made me break out on my cheeks, which is usually not a problem area for me.
Now I have found Mineral Hygienics! It stays where I put it, and I only need to reapply the finishing powder after wearing a mask during some processes at work. I use Bare Minerals Bisque as a concealer on top of my foundation still, as it works well, but when it is empty I will buy Mineral Hygienics!

Perfect for Australia!
I have searched for makeup that looks like I am wearing nothing, this is the only one that fits the bill! I order it from Australia, and it comes usually within the week. It is light and non greasy and stays on even after the gym. I highly recommend it!

What a difference!
I have always been complimented on the peaches and cream skin I was born with. Well, times are changing. I am now entering my 40s and my fair skin has fought the good fight as well as it can against the pollution, sun and my not so hot bad habits. I had a facial done recently and I was shocked at the extractions and the damage my skin really had. They recommended I use mineral makeup. I searched and reviewed all brands online and decided to go with Mineraly Hygienics. I am so glad I did! I am starting to receive those wonderful compliments again and I love never having to touch up my makeup during the day like I used to before. I also love that I didn’t have to spend more money than I was paying before but this time, it’s delivered to me. I look forward to trying more of your products!

PUTS BARE MINERALS TO SHAME
THANK GOD FOR THIS MAKEUP.Acne is terrrrible and embarassing. This is the only product that has cleared my skin. I used bare minerals for about 3 years and broke out so badly. Now after doing my research I know why, Bismuth Oxychloride. This is the only mineral makeup that doesnt have it, or about 20 other ingredients along with it! Only thing I am able to use and only thing I will ever use again, Please do not ever discontinue this business. It is BY far the BEST

Best Makeup Ever!
I have incredibly sensitive skin and an extremely fair complexion. It took me years to find makeup that even matched my skin! Unfortunately, the makeup that matched my skin made my skin break out. Finally, I decided it was time for me to try mineral makeup. I had heard that mineral makeup was better for people with sensitive skin. I did my research, read articles, as well as testimonies. Again and again, Mineral Hygienics was the brand that kept coming out as #1 with the best customer reviews. I decided to give it a shot. I’m so glad I did! The makeup provides great coverage, and it doesn’t bother my skin! My skin is actually looking better than before! I am so happy that I gave Mineral Hygienics a chance. I would highly recommend it for anyone with sensitive skin or anyone who has trouble finding the right shade. Thank you Mineral Hygienics! You have truly saved my face!

Couldn’t ask for more!
I pretty much had given up on trying to find the “perfect” makeup. The trouble with my skin is 1. I am extremely prone to breakouts, 2. I have olive skin which doesn’t work with most makeup tones, and 3. I have really uneven skin coloring and acne scarring so I need decent coverage, but also don’t want to look like I’m wearing a mask either. No makeup has ever met all my requirements, until now! Thank you so much Mineral Hygienics, I haven’t had skin this healthy since I was a kid! Not only that but their exchange policy is great, they take the risk out of shopping online and make finding your ideal shade so easy. I’ve tried other mineral makeup brands in the past and they all ended up in the trash. I figured all mineral makeup was the same but thought I’d try Mineral Hygienics after reading some comments and reviews. So glad I took a chance on you guys! I am singing your praises from the rooftops!

I’m a believer!
I have tried many organic types of make-up over the years trying to find something that would look natural, but also provide adequate coverage for acne break-outs. Inevitably, I would end up resorting to using some form of talc concealer or foundation because of organic or mineral make-up sliding off of my face by mid-day.
After trying Mineral Hygienics for a little over a month, I am so impressed with the coverage and overall condition of my skin. I am not using any additional coverage or concealer for acne and finding my skin looking healthier and clearer every day.
I do not take the time to “write testimonies” unless I am highly impressed with a product. So far, I have been delighted with this one. When I first received my two trial foundation colors, both were too dark for my skin tone and I called customer service before returning them. The customer service person was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He made sure the right shades were exchanged for my two foundations and they were promptly mailed to me the next week.
I will be recommending this product and company to other women. I’m a believer!!

I am truly impressed by the flawless coverage I experienced with Mineral Hygienics! My face still felt clean and fresh, even with makeup on! I believe that Mineral Hygienics have lived up to their awards and reputation. It is well worth your money to experience the best, especially since I have tried all the rest! Enjoy! Tara

Your Makeup Rocks!!!
Dear Mineral Hygienics:
Your makeup rocks and let me tell you why! I’m a realtor, landlord, interior designer and am never afraid to get my hands dirty when the heater goes out. Coincidently, Most of my clients don’t get quite as excited as I do about applying a little elbow grease, so it is imperative that I’m looking my best when finished with a job or running between appointments.
In the past, I would have to constantly touch up my makeup throughout the day. After switching to your product, every time I looked in the mirror it was perfect! I never had to do a thing! Your minerals provide better coverage, they match my skin tone, last longer than anything I’ve ever used, and are super light weight! My clients even noticed that I looked more refreshed, even though I hadn’t change a thing in my routine! Your makeup does everything you claim and more. I’ve used Color Science, Sisley, Perscriptives, Jane Iredale, Bare Minerals, and Glow and not single company has even come close to blowing away my expectations!
Thanks a bunch for a great product and great service!

Mineral Hygienics has exceeded every expectation!!!
DEAR MINERAL HYGIENICS,
After reading my own words, I realize that I must preface my testimonial with this statement: I am a very down-to-earth person who is NOT prone to gushing or exaggeration! I promise that every word I have written is exactly how I feel…
After unsatisfactorily using Bare Minerals for a long time, I decided to research what else was out there. Upon finding MINERAL HYGIENICS, I knew immediately that my search was over just by reading about the ingredients they use – and do not use! This is the only company out there making mineral makeup that does not use BISMUTH OXYCHLORIDE – a byproduct of lead and copper – in any of their products; nor does MINERAL HYGIENICS utilize talc, dyes, parabens, mineral oil, salicylates, carmine, synthetic fragrances, or anything else that is potentially harmful. Because I have a degree in Biochemistry, I can say for a fact that what IS NOT on their ingredient list is just as important as what is!
Before placing my first order, I called MINERAL HYGIENICS with some questions regarding the proper shades for me. Wow, the customer service blew me away! Not only does this company NOT use an automated service, but they called me back within five minutes of my message! Additionally, their service representative provided more help than I could have expected from anyone – they really know their product – as well as the other products on the market! They did everything possible to ensure a good match to my skin tone. Now THAT is customer service, the likes of which does not seem to exist anymore.
After receiving my order and trying everything, I realized immediately why this company believes, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that their product line is the best one out there – IT DEFINITELY IS. One of the foundations matched my skin tone perfectly – which has never happened to me before! And the quality of the minerals in all the products are so finely-milled they almost vaporize into the air! The MINERAL HYGIENICS foundation, although seemingly invisible on my skin, paradoxically covers more imperfections than a thick concealer! How this is possible. . . I have no idea.
I cannot even begin to explain what a gem of a company this is – a company that actually delivers even more than what they, themselves, proclaim! I believe that anyone who uses mineral makeup or wants to try it, absolutely MUST try MINERAL HYGIENICS. In my mind, there is no other company out there that makes TRUE mineral makeup. MINERAL HYGIENICS has exceeded every expectation I have had in every area – and that is why I have become their newest loyal customer.

Keeps up with “On-the-Go” Gal!
I have tried so many foundations, powders, creams, etc. and never found anything that will stay with me on-the-go. I tried Mineral Hygienics for the first time this summer on the way to the pool. It was a 95 degree day and I was chasing my little girl around all afternoon. I came home to find my face still looking great! Unbelievable. I felt comfortable enough to join friends out to eat right after the pool adventure. NEVER would I have done that before this product!
The second test I have put my make-up through is my job. I work 12.5 hr. shifts as an ER/Trauma RN. My job requires me to put on masks, sweat from high-stress situations, physically run around the department from one duty to the next. My Mineral Hygienics stays with me all day and night with the next shift coming in and saying, “you look like you just got here”! Now that is amazing and quite a confidence builder!

Perfect under the HOT studio lights
I am super impressed with your Minerals! I report the evening news for CBS and it is important that my makeup continues to look fresh throughout the day. Running around all day following stories can take a toll on my appearance. Like most reporters, I was constantly redoing my makeup before I went live on camera! Mineral Hygienics is the first product I’ve used that doesn’t require touch-ups. It provides exception coverage and continues to look great all day! I never need to do any touch-ups! In the past my face would start to shine under the hot studio lights. Since switching to Mineral Hygienics I continue to look great! Thank you so much!!!

Works great with my sensitive skin
I just started using Mineral Hygienics a few weeks ago & really like it! It works with my extremely sensitive & allergy-prone skin. The coverage looks great as well. Much better than the Jane Iredale I tried prior to MH! Thank you!

Very Sensitive Skin
I have very very sensitive skin and this is the only makeup that I’ve found to not irritate my skin. It covers all the imperfections but feels so light on my face that I sometimes forget that I’m wearing anything at all. I get numerous complements on my complexion and I have already recommended this product to 3 of my friends who have sensitive and problematic skin as well. Thank you for creating this amazing makeup.
