Mineral makeup is made up of a variety of the earth’s natural mineral elements. These elements are rocks, clay and crystals like mica, titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, kaolin, ultramarine blue, tin oxide are super fine milled mineral particles that lay onto the skins surface. Therefore, the buffing motion that is done when applying Mineral makeup, the Minerals melt onto the skins surface and appears like real skin.
A pure raw mineral makeup is combined with inorganic pigments to achieve the desired shade or colour. For a mineral makeup to be pure it should not contain artificial colours, synthetics, preservatives or fragrances, fillers, or talc. KIBI has none of those chemicals.
Simply, there doesn’t need to be. Cosmetics made from pure minerals and inorganic pigments that exist in nature do not need preservatives. Particularly in our Mineral Powder range, bacterial and fungal growth do not occur in completely dry pure mineral based cosmetics. Therefore, pure mineral cosmetics will last longer, is healthier for you and feel better on the skin due to the earthy feels.
A nanoparticle is a piece of ‘material’ so small that its size is measured in nanometres or billionths of a meter, so tiny, small. A typical nanoparticle is approximately 1/50000 smaller than the diameter of a human hair. This sized nano partial makes them unpredictable when exposed to different conditions and environments.
Early scientific studies show that when exposed to UV light nanoparticles used in cosmetics produce free radicals that damage the DNA and cells. If make-up has nano-sized particles these particles are more easily absorbed into the body. Avoiding products with ingredients that have nano-sized particles is a safer option. KIBI Raw Minerals is Nano Free.

Fragrances are the most common cause of irritation to the skin. However, it is important to note that there are fragrances that can be completely natural. Nevertheless, be aware that most commercial cosmetic fragrances contain chemicals such as phthalates that are used to make the scent last longer. Phthalates are unnatural and unhealthy as it is known to sometimes accumulate in the body. Synthetic fragrance formulas can trigger some nasty health side-effect like asthma and headaches.
Even sometimes when you think you are buying fragrance free or unscented products need the ingredient label still need to be checked. Some may be labelled unscented, or fragrance free but additional chemicals may be used to cover up the raw ingredient’s odours. Pure raw mineral based cosmetics do not use fragrances and doesn’t really have a smell.

Mica are common rock-forming minerals. Mica is a generic name given to a group of complex hydrous aluminosilicate minerals that crystallise with a sheet or plate-like structure. It is a natural shimmer pigment from the mineral Muscovite Mica (potassium aluminium silicate). When applies to the skin it offers light reflection and a healthy, glowing appearance.
Mica powder in cosmetics is used as a filler & texturiser for improved skin feel. It increases slip & aids skin adhesion. It also acts as a fluffing agent in emulsions, reduces greasiness of oil-containing formulas, can replace talc as filler and has anti-caking properties (prevents clumping and clogging). All round a good rock.
