The Liquid Foundation Advantage

The Liquid Foundation Advantage

As awareness has grown for the harmful chemicals found in our food, the air we breathe and the products we purchase, many companies have joined us in efforts towards healthier and more natural ingredient choices.

One cosmetic trend that has gained popularity for being naturally derived and “healthier for your skin” is mineral makeup. Unfortunately, the abrasive and messy nature of the powder poses a danger when used over time. 

Oxygenetix creators knew the risk factors of using powder makeup when formulating our award-winning cosmetic topicals, Oxygenating Foundation, and Acne Control Foundation. This is why all Oxygenetix products are liquid formulas and safe for even the most sensitive skin.

Let’s delve more into myths about powder and the liquid foundation advantage.

The Dangers of Powder Makeup 

Powder makeup is loved for its ability to create smooth coverage on the skin and is often used as a finishing touch for a flawless look. However, in order to create this smoothing effect, the minerals in the powder have to be extremely small, posing a danger for our lungs. 

According to Dr. Oz, “Mineral makeup is a big trend. Made from minerals such as mica, which are used for industrial purposes as well, these tiny particles are a thousand times smaller than predecessors from even 10 years ago. The particles are so tiny they fall quickly through the air and can be inhaled easily into your lungs.” 

When mica-based spackle is used in construction, workers wear masks to save their lungs from breathing in the harmful particles, while we breathe it in without protection when applying most powder makeups. Dr. Oz explains, “experts say the long-term use and inhalation of minerals in makeup can lead to inflammation, irritation and lung disease in women and girls.”

The Occupational Health Guideline for Mica warns, “Exposure to mica dust over a period of years may cause scarring of the lungs. The symptoms which may occur with this condition are cough, shortness of breath, weakness, and weight loss.”

Additionally, the nanoparticles in powder makeup are irregularly shaped like shards of glass, which can cut the skin microscopically. Over time these mineral particles work inside the pores, clogging and harboring bacteria.

Powder makeups can also be very occlusive, almost like the skin is covered by a rock or pile of sand. When the skin is clogged with occlusive powders it cannot function properly, and pores may enlargen as they “gasp for air”. 

When the skin is not functioning at its highest potential, skin caked with powder visually makes the wearer look older while literally speeding up the aging process underneath. Powder makeup can be very drying, promoting fine lines and wrinkles.

As the skin becomes damaged after prolonged usage the skin ages quickly and more makeup is often used to cover up, creating an endless cycle of poorly treated skin. 

The Liquid Foundation Advantage

Oxygenetix Oxygenating Foundation provides the solution for flawless coverage without harming the skin.

In fact, Oxygenetix topicals allow the skin to breathe while concealing, a true game-changer in the cosmetic realm.

Oxygenetix formulators knew that to create a cosmetic topical that could be applied post-procedure, they would need to create a liquid cream foundation. The ingredients would have to be so safe, that even the most compromised and sensitive skin could benefit. Oxygenating Foundation was born keeping both the health of the skin and the wearer in mind.

Oxygenating Foundation is a high quality topical foundation that can be worn every day without risk to your skin’s health. The appearance and health of the skin actually improve while wearing Oxygenetix throughout the day. 

This gentle creamy formula is packaged in an airless pump to prevent cross-contamination. Ceravitae®, found in all Oxygenetix products, promotes skin cell turnover while allowing the skin to breathe, promoting youthfulness. Every ingredient in Oxygenetix topicals is non-occlusive and allows the skin to breathe, functioning at full capacity.

Liquid foundation is sometimes used as a base or primer for the rest of the face makeup, however, Oxygenating Foundation has a buildable cream formula with the ability to create a flawless finish without the powder built on top. Simplifying the makeup routine, this liquid foundation provides all the coverage desired without clogging the pores. 

Unlike powder which easily transfers onto clothing, the silky smooth consistency of Oxygenating Foundation is transfer and sweat-resistant, staying on throughout all of your daily activities. 

Oxygenetix topicals are so beneficial and safe for your skin they are recommended by a team of Global Advisory Board Members who endorse Oxygenetix for use post-procedure and for a variety of skin conditions.
