The Body Shop, a leading global retailer of cosmetics and toiletries, has unveiled a new make-up range, Nature's Minerals.
The collection is clinically-proven to be perfect for those with sensitive skin, free of preservatives, fragrance, and oils - and ideal for those with sensitive skin.
The new make-up range comprises a long-lasting foundation with SPF25 to help protect skin from sun damage, four fresh fabulous cheek colours and six sensational pearlescent eye shades, each contained in jars which include recycled content, with a mesh sifter for easy distribution.
Pure mineral powders have been carefully selected by The Body Shop to deliver adjustable coverage for a light, naturally radiant finish, offering 'barely-there' make-up with a slightly pearlescent formulation for healthy-looking skin.
The Nature's Mineral range also includes a Foundation Brush, Blusher Brush and Eyeshadow Brush, 100% free of animal hair.
The Nature's Minerals Foundation SPF25 is oil free, dermatologically-tested, non-comedogenic and free from potential irritants like preservatives and fragrances. The Foundation is made up of ingredients including Mediterranean clay and kaolin, which together ensure amazing staying power, Sericite to promote lustre and mica based pearls for a natural healthy looking glow.
The Nature's Minerals Cheek Colour range is an enduring, blendable powder blush created from pure minerals providing a weightless feel when applied to skin. Choose from: Pink Quartz, Golden Terracotta, Warm Copper and Brown Topaz.
Nature's Minerals Eye Colour from The Body Shop provides customers with six up to the minute shades. All the shades in this range have been ophthalmologically tested, and are suitable for wearers of contact lenses, as well as those with sensitive skin. Choose from: Platinum Shimmer, Radiant Graphite, Golden Emerald, Pink Opal, Bronzed Amber and Molten Bronze.
