Mineral Face Powders

More about our mineral face powders


It's time to take your regular makeup routine to the next level, so take a look at our range of mineral face powders and find out why you should make the switch today. Colorescience has all of the powders that you need, from pressed foundations and bronzers to sunscreens, mineral palettes, and corrective kits for pigmentation.


All of these face powder products give you a minimum of SPF 20, with some giving up to SPF 50, so your skin will be protected from harmful UVA and UVB rays from the sun. These products are also reef-safe, which means you won't be polluting the water with the harsh chemicals found in most regular cosmetics and sunscreens.


Do your face powders offer SPF?


Yes, all of the makeup face powders and sunscreens you see here have at least SPF 20. The powdered sunscreens have SPF 50. This means your skin is protected from the sun, and it gets that protection without feeling thick and heavy like some similar foundations did in the past.


You're living in the future now, in a time when powder foundations can give you so many benefits, so there really is no reason to avoid trying them out. If you don't like it after you use up your first supply, then you can simply go back to your regular routine as if nothing happened.


Even the products that only have SPF 20 offer moderate protection from the sun, but when you layer these products with others you can increase the protection substantially. This is very important to think about when looking in to the future and wanting to protect your beautiful skin for decades to come. Just ask any dermatologist and they will agree – protecting your skin from UVA and UVB rays is one of the best ways to keep your skin looking youthful for longer.


What active ingredients are in Colorescience face powders?


Titanium dioxide is one of the main active ingredients in the Colorescience range of mineral face powders. It's a completely natural mineral that is taken from the earth and then milled in to a fine powder for use in cosmetics and sunscreens.


This mineral, along with zinc oxide, is responsible for the UVA and UVB protection your skin gets from using these products, but it's also great for a variety of reasons. One of the other great benefits is that it is not risky to use for people with sensitive skin or those prone to redness, which also means it is far less likely to sting when used around the eyes compared to other products.


Zinc oxide is the other main active ingredient used in this range of powders. It's another natural ingredient that has been used for centuries for a variety of reasons. For a start, it's great as a protective layer against sun damage.


It is responsible for the white colouration of most sunscreens, but thanks again to modern technology it is possible to get the benefits of zinc oxide without giving you an unnatural look. Zinc oxide is also used in situations where inflammation and irritation is common, such as mineral face powder treatments for rashes and other allergies, because it is not likely to further inflame sensitive skin.
