Hypoallergenic Mineral Makeup
Omiana is a brand rife with hypoallergenic natural makeup, including options without coconut oil, butters, waxes, and more. Omiana is crafted to be gentle on even the most sensitive, reactive skin, omitting ingredients such as fragrance, parabens, talc, gluten, and much more. Regarding non-comedogenic makeup, there are no established testing methods or standards in place to make products qualify. We encourage learning which ingredients your skin favors and which truly clog or irritate:
Often we hear from people who are wise in letting their skin 'breathe' ... albeit they eschew organic oils. While some oils can be great for others and no-go's for some, oils can be perfectly fine - even nurturing - for the most reactive, sensitive skin. Organic oils can still be non-comedogenic themselves. This is not to say every organic oil is perfect for everyone, but it is to encourage even the most reactive skin types to still consider oil-containing formulas, such a liquids and creams (that require oils/waxes/emulsifiers to achieve their format). Omiana uses light, breathable organic oils that do not clog pores or cause breakouts. These select oils harmonize with the skin and even help regulate sebum production by way of "training" layers of skin.
Oil in makeup and skincare is not inherently bad. Synthetic oils such as mineral oil and petrolatum and petrochemicals artificially clog skin and pores with a non-breathable barrier that clogs pores.
This is NOT to say that some people do not react to seemingly good oils or butters, such as coconut oil, shea butter, fruit wax, and the like: our bodies and needs are incredibly dynamic and what might impart moisture to one person might be a true irritant to another (e.g., we find a significant portion of our savvy supporters cannot tolerate coconut oil while another segment loves it: you and only you can truly learn to discern what your skin prefers vs. what it does not. Because a learning curve can be involved, we are always here to help you with returns and exchanges, even of opened products. Happy choosing!
