Youngblood

The Youngblood difference

Youngblood is the premier luxury mineral cosmetics line made of natural, finely ground minerals from the earth — without any of the common irritants (including chemicals, dyes and preservatives) found in conventional makeup. Created by former medical aesthetician, Pauline Youngblood, many of our products contain our signature mineral blend of Malachite, Rhodolite, Hematite and Zincite to help protect cells and tissue.

 

 

Why minerals?

A mineral is an inorganic solid substance that occurs naturally in rocks and in the ground. When used in cosmetics, these micronized crystals reflect light to help smooth the appearance of fine lines and blemishes. Minerals provide rich colour with natural pigments from the earth — unlike traditional makeup formulas, which contain harmful petroleum dyes and other chemical-based additives.

Minerals also naturally provide sun protection, keeping skin healthy and youthful. Minerals do not support the growth of bacteria or microbes, and pose a lower risk of allergic reaction. In fact, minerals are great for use on skin recovering from harsh medical procedures, and on problem skin conditions like rosacea, acne and discoloration.

Ingredients:

Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics uses only the purest, most premium grade minerals. Those minerals are refined using their own proprietary milling process. Although many mineral lines claim to be “jet-milled” or “triple-milled,” not all milling processes achieve superior results and, oftentimes, result in potentially dangerous ultra-fine particles known as nanoparticles. Youngblood does not use nanoparticles in its formulas.

When comparing mineral cosmetic lines, always check for synthetic ingredients such as alcohol, artificial fragrance, mineral oil, talc or petroleum. Talc is a filler and can block pores, dry out the skin and cause irritation. Youngblood’s products do not contain talc or any other fillers. Instead, they use rice starch as a healthy alternative to talc and various botanicals and vitamins to create their safe, effective formulas. Youngblood is also proud to be paraben-free since 2008.

As the cosmetics industry continues to explore the benefits of minerals, Youngblood remains the premier choice for healthy, luxe quality mineral cosmetics.
