Smoky Mountain Minerals
(Conover, NC USA)
I have tried every mineral makeup out there and Smoky Mountain Minerals wins hands down! It is easy to match my skin tone and is easy to apply. I have lots of sun damage and freckles and theirs covers better than anyone.
It's really inexpensive, too. They also give great coupon savings when you sign up for their newsletter. I got a whole makeup kit for $15! You can't find that anywhere else! Their natural skin care is the bomb! I love the lift and firm. I could bathe in that stuff!

When a new product is listed I visit the site to get a better idea about the company. Smoky Mountain Minerals carries a variety of mineral products, foundation, shadow, blush etc along with mascara, lip sticks and skin care products.
The ingredients for their mineral foundation is listed below. (from their website)
"All minerals are made up of pure minerals. No fillers, no perfumes, no oils, no additives. Pure minerals only!! Ingredients consist of sericite, titanium dioxide, iron oxides, silica spheres (excluding Illusion Veil and Glow). In addition to the ingredients listed above, our Illusion Veil and Glow also contain zeamays, cosmetic grade cornstarch for slip."
Often in natural products like the mineral foundation above that does not contain moisture there are no preservatives needed. Products like mascara and skin creams often contain some sort of preservative sometimes natural sometimes not. Learn about the ones to avoid by visiting nontoxic skin care.
. When shopping for the safest products check out all ingredients but pay particular attention to the ingredients in products that contain moisture.
