Q. What makes The English Mineral Makeup Company mineral powders superior to others?

We purchase the absolute best quality minerals available. There are two major factors that determines the quality of mineral makeup:

1. The quality of raw minerals – raw mineral colours are available in the different grades by the manufacturers around the world, depending on the level of purity. Ours are the best you can get.

2. The additives – Some mineral makeups offered in the market contain additional ingredients that can be skin irritants, such as bismuth oxychloride, talc, fillers, etc and they are still advertised as “Mineral Makeup”! Fish scales are also commonly used as a cheap way to add glimmer- YUK!

At English Mineral Makeup, we do NOT compromise the integrity and quality of our product – we source the highest grade of pure & natural ingredients available in the market. Also, our products are free from additives that can cause cause skin irritation and allergies such as parabens, mineral oil, perfumes, fragrances, dyes, bismuth oxychloride, talc, etc.


Q. Do The English Mineral Makeup Company’s products contain nanoparticles, e.g. Nano Titanium Dioxide?

We are fully aware of the health risks associated with using micronised raw ingredients, so no, we do not use them in our product. Also, all the raw ingredients that we use in our formulation have gone through the the EU Compliance process for “nanoparticles” to ensure they are not present.


Q. Do The English Mineral Makeup Company test products on animals?

We never test our products on animals, all our products are cruelty free. We also purchase our raw ingredients from suppliers who confirm their products are also NOT tested on animals.


Q. Are The English Mineral Makeup Company’s products suitable for Vegan?

Yes, our products (inc.brushes) are suitable for vegans, with the exception of Fairy Godmother and Mirror Mirror which contain crushed pearl.


Q. Do The English Mineral Makeup Company provide “custom made colour” service for mineral powders?

Yes, we do. We can customize any colour – all you need to do is send us a sample and we will match it for you. Please contact us for the pricing information.


Q. Does The English Mineral Makeup Company’s powder provide sun protection?

Our mineral makeup contains  Zinc Oxide,  which is a  natural barrier sunscreen ingredient. It works to block UVA and UVB rays, delivering broad-spectrum sun protection of at least SPF 15. However, mineral makeup should NEVER served as the first line of defence against sun damage.


The Small Print:

We believe safety should not be sacrificed for beauty. We are very proud of the ingredients that we select to include in our formulations – so we have nothing to hide when it comes to listing our ingredients – right here on our website!.... We do not use nano-ingredients in our products.
