Ingredients NOT in Omiana: Many makeup--even 'mineral makeup' brands--contain irritating ingredients! We are your leader in titanium dioxide-free makeup options, mica-free makeup, and options without mica and titanium dioxide, among many other ingredients. Always carmine-free, talc-free, bismuth-free, and more!

Clearly you've done your research . . .

YOU'RE INGREDIENT-SMART

Makeup without common mineral makeup ingredients is our speciality! We offer many formulas for you, from mica-free options, titanium dioxide-free options, boron nitride-free options, ultramarine-free options, and we never use nanoparticles, carmine, coal tar, propylene glycol, chemical SPF, and more!

Many gals come to Omiana because they know we offer formulas without a specific ingredient, whether needing makeup without titanium dioxide, without mica, without both mica and titanium dioxide, without corn ingredients, and so much more. We always shun bismuth oxychloride, propylene glycol, chromium greens, nanoparticles, micronized particles, parabens, tin oxide, animal-tested ingredients and products, and a slew of other potentially noxious ingredients found in many mineral makeup lines. Whatever your ingredient omission preferences are, we surely have a range of products you will love. Use the sidebar filtering tool to easily filter-out ingredients sometimes in Omiana products.

Purely Natural Makeup for All Skin Types, Even the Most Sensitive: Our Mission? Omission.


We don't just say "natural" beauty for the sake of marketing. When we say natural, we mean taking out toxic ingredients as well as any that are 'iffy.' We omit ingredients that many other mineral lines wouldn't think to omit because some women have allergies to very specific ingredients and/or some are incredibly privy to studies on some of the downsides of traditional mineral makeup ingredients.


Some Makeup and Beauty Products Are TOXIC!


Has makeup -- maybe even mineral makeup -- made your skin itch? Do you have little bumps? Straight-up allergies? Simply health-savvy? That expensive mineral makeup with argan oil / great reviews / "pure" in the brand's name / full coverage / pretty packaging / yada-yada-yada might totally be irritating--if not endangering--you. In fact, many lines use irritating bismuth oxychloride, which is related to arsenic, nano-sized titanium dioxide (CI 77891), other nanoparticles (many ingredients can be in nano-form, from iron oxides to ultramarines -- even micronized or micro-sized particles are still a concern. Most brands do not know what size their particles are), and other ingredients Omiana shuns. In a nutshell, here's why you've clearly got some epic taste in mineral makeup and beauty products:


      • Few lines exist with so few pure, non-toxic, meticulously sourced ingredients, with so many mica-free and titanium dioxide-free optoins (along with bismuth oxychloride, talc, nanoparticles, carmine, tin oxide, gluten, and so forth. The list of what we shun is a long one, touched upon below)

      • There are a few 'pure' mineral makeup lines out there who are saying '[+/- CI 77891, CI77491, CI 77492, CI 77499]' -- which can include titanium dioxide (CI 77891), iron oxides, and ultramarines. We prefer to list the standard ingredient nomenclature along with required INCI naming than to try to confuse our savvy consumer base with fancy jargon.

      • Omiana uses high-micron particles (that is, large particles that, unlike nanoparticles common to many mineral lines, sit on the skin and do not alter DNA)

      • All products and the individual ingredients comprising them are cruelty-free; we and our suppliers would never test on animals! Additionally, most of our products are vegan; the only that are not are those with ethically sourced, cruelty-free beeswax.

Synthetic Preservatives


Synthetic Emulsifiers

Synthetic Colors, albeit please note that in the case of iron oxides and ultramarines, the fact that these ARE lab-created is the safe practice; these colorants found in nature would be contaminated with heavy metals. We are sure that with our iron oxides and the rare cases in which we use ultramarines that they are not nano-sized (nanoparticle)--not even micronized. Larger particle sizes are, purportedly, safer!
