Mineral Cosmetics

Natural Shades. Flawless Finish. Pure Luxury.

Youngblood is the premier luxury mineral cosmetics line made of natural, finely ground minerals from the earth — without any of the common irritants (including chemicals, dyes and preservatives) found in conventional makeup. Created by former medical aesthetician, Pauline Youngblood, many of our products contain our signature mineral blend of Malachite, Rhodolite, Hematite and Zincite to help protect cells and tissue.

From the first moment you brush on the loose Natural Mineral Foundation, you'll notice an incredibly silky feel and polished, fresh-faced finish. Our lightweight foundations contain a natural sun protectant, and look virtually undetectable while providing flawless, buildable coverage. Youngblood never appears glittery; instead, skin radiates a natural, healthy glow!

Youngblood is gentle to all skin types and conditions, including skin recovering from laser or chemical peels, or experiencing rosacea, acne or discoloration. It is the clear standard used at many upscale med-spas and skin care clinics around the world, and is carried at the finest boutiques including Henri Bendel in New York and NewBeauty at Fred Segal in Santa Monica, CA.

Our products are free of talc, parabens, oil and fragrance, and have earned numerous awards including "Best Foundation" (Beauty Launchpad) and "Best Mineral Blush" (NewBeauty). We are herald by professional makeup artists, celebrities and customers alike for our comprehensive assortment of natural-looking shades that are easy to use, long-lasting and able to stand up to heat, humidity and perspiration.

 

Why Minerals

  • A mineral is an inorganic solid substance that occurs naturally in rocks and in the ground. When used in cosmetics, these micronized crystals reflect light to help smooth the appearance of fine lines and blemishes. Minerals provide rich color with natural pigments from the earth — unlike traditional makeup formulas, which contain harmful petroleum dyes and other chemical-based additives. Minerals also naturally provide sun protection, keeping skin healthy and youthful. Minerals do not support the growth of bacteria or microbes, and pose a lower risk of allergic reaction. In fact, minerals are great for use on skin recovering from harsh medical procedures, and on problem skin conditions like rosacea, acne and discoloration.

  • Our Ingredients

    At Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics, we use only the purest, most premium grade minerals. We refine our minerals using our proprietary milling process. Although many mineral lines claim to be "jet-milled" or "triple-milled," not all milling processes achieve superior results and, oftentimes, result in potentially dangerous ultra-fine particles known as nanoparticles. Youngblood does not use nanoparticles in its formulas.

    When comparing mineral cosmetic lines, always check for synthetic ingredients such as alcohol, artificial fragrance, mineral oil, talc or petroleum. Talc is a filler, and can block pores, dry out skin and cause irritation. Our products do not contain talc, or any other fillers. Instead, we use rice starch as a healthy alternative to talc and various botanicals and vitamins to create our safe, effective formulas. We are also proud to be paraben free since 2008.


    As the cosmetics industry continues to explore the benefits of minerals, Youngblood remains the premier choice for healthy, luxe quality mineral cosmetics. We invite you to compare our products to our competitors, and we think you'll find our quality superior to any other mineral cosmetics line.
