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 the products contain a signature mineral blend of Malachite, Rhodolite, Hematite and Zincite to help protect cells and tissue.
Youngblood is gentle to all skin types and conditions, including skin recovering from laser or chemical peels, or experiencing rosacea, acne or discolouration and all products are free of talc, parabens, oil and fragrance.
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 color 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.
