Frequently Asked Questions
Why is mineral makeup better than traditional makeup?
High quality mineral makeup should not clog pores, and should feel like you have no makeup on at all. It should contain no synthetic or irritating ingredients, such as alcohol, artificial fragrance, mineral oil, talc, or petroleum.
How is Youngblood manufactured?
What makes Youngblood superior to other mineral cosmetic lines?
When comparing mineral cosmetic lines, always check for synthetic ingredients such as alcohol, artificial fragrance, mineral oil, talc, or petroleum - you won't find these in Youngblood products.
You'll see some similarity in ingredients among different mineral cosmetic companies, but the proportions will not be the same. You'll also read about companies using different, "superior" milling processes. We're confident that when you compare, you'll find Youngblood ingredients and processes are of the very highest quality on the market.
You'll also notice that some other mineral cosmetics may have an undesirable "glittery" look. That's because their milling process or ingredient combination leaves a rough finish - it can even itch or cause breakouts. Youngblood, however, glides on silky smooth, and has a more refined "glow," rather than a sparkly "glitter."
Try our product - we think you'll find the feel is the silkiest available, the coverage is flawless, the look is the most polished and natural, and the choice of shades the most comprehensive and realistic.
Why aren't Youngblood products SPF rated?
Many of Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics' products contain titanium dioxide, a natural mineral with sun-protective properties. However, as all women will use differing amounts of our product, the degree of sun protection will vary from person to person. For example, a woman who uses relatively heavy coverage of Youngblood Natural Mineral Foundation will benefit from more sun protection than will a woman who uses only a light dusting.
We at Youngblood recognize the ordinary variations in the way our products are used, and our doctors agree that customers are best served by our choice not to provide our products with an SPF rating, as it could be misleading.

Do Youngblood products contain preservatives?
However, any product containing liquids, such as lip gloss, mascara, etc., can foster bacterial or microbial growth. In order to protect your health, and inhibit the growth of microbes and bacteria, we've chosen preservatives derived from plants, which are often used in baby care and food products. It is our commitment to your healthy lifestyle that we use the most natural ingredients possible.
