Titanium dioxide-free makeup options, mica-free makeup, always carmine-free, talc-free, bismuth-free, and more!
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!
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 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, 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 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 coated titanium dioxide (CI 77891), other nanoparticles (many ingredients can be in nano-form, from iron oxides to ultramarines. 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 / the largest particle size we can for a specific formula (that is, large particles that, unlike nanoparticles common to many mineral lines, sit on the skin and do not alter DNA).
All Omiana formulas 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.
Choose your Omiana products knowing they are without --
Beeswax is in only a few products
Boron nitride-free options
Cera Alba (see Beeswax; in only a few products)
Cornstarch (see Zea Mays) - this is the only product with hydrolyzed cornstarch
Dimethicone is in only one of our products - the Tan Pressed Matte Bronzer
Emulsifying Wax, even Emulsifying Wax NF
Essential Oils are, for the most part, avoided; only a few Omiana products contain them
FD&C Blue 1
FD&C Red 40
FD&C Yellow 5 - the only product with a lake dye is this Redness Concealer cream and this, a massively popular option for those needing to avoid titanium dioxide and zinc oxide yet okay with this colorant. Please avoid if you disapprove.
Formaldehyde-Releasing Preservatives (look for DMDM Hydantoin, Diazolidinyl Urea, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Methenamine, Quarternium-15, specifically)
Fragrance, even from essential oils; essential oils are in only a few products
Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)
Gluten (If there is ever a trace amount, we will disclose so in the product description. Please note, we carry two skincare [this option and this one] items that you will want to avoid if you are sensitive to wheat/gluten and soy)
Glycine Soja (see Soybean)
Parfum (see Synthetic Fragrance)
Petrolatum and Petroleum-Based Ingredients
Silica is in only a few products
Siloxanes (look for “-siloxane” or “-methicone”)
Sodium Cocoyl Sarcosinate
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
Soy (see Glycine Soja) (If there is ever a trace amount, we will disclose so in the product description. Please note, we carry two skincare [this option and this one] items that you will want to avoid if you are sensitive to wheat/gluten and soy)
Synthetic Fragrances (see Parfum)
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!
Titanium Dioxide-Free Options (most Omiana products are without titanium dioxide, although we have a range of options with it, for those who are sensitive to, say, mica but not TD. We have even mica-free and titanium dioxide-free for those who need to avoid both ingredients!)
Tocopheryl Acetate-Free Options (learn more about how to vet through products with tocopheryl acetate via this blog article!)
Ultramarine-free options; only a few Omiana products contain ultramarines
Vanillyl Butyl Ether
Zea Mays (Cornstarch) - this is the only product with hydrolyzed cornstarch
Zinc Oxide-Free Options (albeit we have many zinc oxide-based formulations)
