Modern Mineral Makeup - Imagine Plastic Surgery

Modern Mineral Makeup


Posted by Dr. Hardesty

Archeologists have found evidence that makeup started with the ancient Egyptians. Many paintings show eyeliner around one eye, and many statues confirm that they used eyeliner around both eyes.

The cosmetics the Egyptians used were 100% natural, because there was no other alternative back in those times. Cleopatra’s eyes were outlined with an eye cosmetic called “Kohl”, which was made by grinding minerals, crushed copper, burnt almonds, and ash.  The eyes were given an almond shape.

What are the ingredients in modern makeup?

Today’s modern makeup include many chemicals derived from petroleum and other common chemicals also used are sodium lauryl sulfate and parabens, both can irritate some women’s or a man’s skin. Modern makeup may also include synthetic fragrances, which can cause you an allergic reaction. Colors used in modern makeup usually come from synthetic dyes/pigments, which are less expensive than using color from actual natural sources.
