There are many things that set glo minerals apart, not only from traditional cosmetic lines, but from other mineral makeup lines on the market today. Talcum powder (aka talc) is generally used as a bulking agent and it allows cosmetic companies to increase the amount of product they produce for the amount of pigment they put in. Since we are committed to only using high quality, premium grade ingredients, our formulas are 100% talc-free. Here are three more reasons why choosing talc-free makeup is so important for your skin:
1) Talc may exacerbate skin conditions like acne and rosacea. Sensitive skin types may experience irritation and redness with the use of products containing talc.
2) Products containing talc can increase the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Because a talc particle is heavier than a mineral pigment, the talc will settle into both pores and wrinkles thus accentuating fine lines and clogging pores.
3) The lack of talc in glo minerals provides fuller coverage while using less product. This means that your base will last longer while still giving you the long-lasting coverage and protection you need.
