***Silk Mica is natural and is similar to sericite mica but its silkier, whiter and offers a soft, smooth texture that is mattifying. 
WHY WE USE IT: we use this version of Mica because it is silkier and softer then regular sericite mica. This helps to make our shadows feel more luxurious. The price for this powder is about double what regular sericite mica is because of how silky smooth it applies - we think it is worth it!

***Boron Nitride is a soft, silky white mineral powder that adds slip and adhesion to a product. It is soft and adds supreme creaminess to the powder. Boron Nitride is a natural, inert mineral.

***Caranuba Wax Mica this is a Sericite Mica that has been surface treated with Carnauba Wax, the wax coating helps bind the particles so the formulas have less fly away when pressed. This also imparts great skin feel with amazingly smooth and light finish.

***Titianium Dioxide is a natural mineral used to whiten and makes a product more opaque.

***Magnesium Stearate is a chemical compound of Magnesium (element, same as in vitamins) and Stearate (plant derived).

***Magnesium Myristate is the combination of Magnesium (a mineral) and Myristate a fatty acid (naturally occurring). Magnesium Myristate will add adhesion, slip, soft feel and helps to repel water.

***Zinc Stearate made from natural and essential raw material. If you choose to press your powders having this in the base helps your powders press more easily

***Fractionated Coconut Oil (we use this to bind our Powders) - fraction of coconut oil comprised mainly of Capric and Caprylic Acid thus giving it more of an antioxidant and disinfecting effect. Has a long shelf life, stability and rancidity resistant.

***Colored Micas add color, shimmer and shine to the product.

***Oxides are natural minerals and add color to the product, also helps with making the product opaque.

***Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Potassium Sorbate, Hexylene Glycol - Preservative we use to preserve our eyeshadows and make them last longer. This is used at about .2% of the total weight

We offer a 7 day 100% money-back guarantee.

We want to be completely honest with our customers and saying that our products are ALL NATURAL might seem misleading to those that don't realize that ALL micas, oxides and mineral colorants are actually made in a lab. The colorants that we use are nature identical - exact chemical structure as the minerals mined out of the ground, we don't use any colorants other than these nature identical ones in our eye shadows.

This is taken from the soapqueen.com's website - Pigments and Oxides are considered “nature identical” meaning they are the exact same chemical structure as the platelet minerals found in the earth. But they are created in a lab to ensure purity. Oxides and pigments are the same product that mineral make up lines use to achieve lovely natural hues. Manufacturing nature identical products keeps the bad stuff, like lead and arsenic for example, out of the colorants. Industry wide, pigments and oxides are labeled as natural in all types of mineral makeup and soaps for this reason because they are nature identical and many don’t contain any synthetic dyes. The word ‘natural’ is not a regulated or defined term in the soap and cosmetic industry.

    My favorite sheen.

    Posted by Casey on Aug 15th 2018

    This is beautiful, and it's one of my favorites. This is the only highlighter that I took on my trip. You know you like and trust something if you travel with it. I can just slap it on bare skin or powdered skin, and it's what I want it to be right away. The finish is a pearly sheen that is still within the natural range, but the shiny side of natural. I have oily skin, and natural highlighters can look matte or disjointed on me. This one does not. It holds its own against the shine that my face has when I don't powder while looking apart of the skin when I do powder. It looks gorgeous when first applied, but the finish is at its best after it sort of melts into the skin (it does cake up on me if I foil it or apply it really thickly). I prefer a single layer and buffed in a bit. As the day goes on and oils are overtaking my face, the highlight doesn't just break apart but remains even. It lasts all day, but is less obvious later in the day because I am very oily. The base of the powder is lighter than TheBalm's Mary-Lou Manizer and Laura Geller's French Vanilla with a bit more of a yellow cream color. My skin still shows through. The shine is more even and less sparkly compared to Mary-Lou, but stronger than French Vanilla. Mary-Lou can make me look a little dirty sometimes, but I don't have to worry with Satin Kicks. For reference, I am on the fair side (I mix Laura Geller's Baked Balance N Bright in Porcelain and Fair) with yellow and neutral undertones.
