My mineral cosmetics makeup philosophy
Hello, my name is Jules Derrick. I am the founder of Outsidethebox Makeup™. As a mineral cosmetic company, we aim to supply quality products that are good for your skin, as well as offer a more personal service to all of our customers. We purchase our ingredients from reputable cosmetics ingredient suppliers who have safety assessments carried out by approved chemists in the UK. Our products, ingredients and suppliers are all registered on the Cosmetics Products Notification Portal database, which complies with the latest EU cosmetic regulations.
Outsidethebox mineral make up is a skin treatment and makeup in one! It covers up skin imperfections flawlessly, evens out skin tone without blocking pores and actually helps to heal and renew your skin due to carefully selected active natural ingredients.
Our main ingredient in our mineral foundations is Titanium Dioxide which gives our mineral foundations better coverage than other brands that use a large quantity of Mica. You can achieve professional looking results at home! Our products are not tested on animals and are made from natural ingredients approved for cosmetic use.
We do not use any ingredients in our makeup that are derived from animals
Our philosophy is to provide makeup that is natural and pure. We do not use any harsh chemicals, unnecessary additives, animal products or alcohols in our preparations. All preservatives are natural, such as grapefruit extract and Vitamin E.
All of our mineral cosmetics are named after British wild flowers, as we aim is to be as close to nature as possible in our cosmetics, which we believe are also skincare products.
Our carefully chosen, chemist approved, natural ingredients are:
Titanium Dioxide – For great coverage and a natural UV block to protect skin
Zinc Oxide – This has wonderful healing properties and is anti-septic, anti-microbial, and fungicidal, so it can act as a treatment for sensitive or inflamed and blemish prone skin. Zinc Oxide offers protection from the sun by sitting on top of the skin scattering and absorbing the harmful rays, both UVA & UVB and is beneficial in reducing pre-mature ageing of the skin & skin cancer due to its broad spectrum sunscreen.
Mica– For a silky application and blurring fine lines
Rice Powder – Reduces the appearance of enlarged pores and keep away shine, while giving your skin a smooth and silky appearance. It also has wonderful anti-inflammatory properties.
Kaolin – This is great for oil control allowing your makeup to last all day and be sweat resistant. It is also very good at effectively hiding imperfections and fine lines which is why we use it in our foundations and concealers. As the mildest of all clays, it is suitable for use on individuals who are managing skin conditions such as dryness, acne, rosacea, sun damage and cosmetic surgery recovery. Kaolin also aids in healing these skin problems.
Allantoin – Known to produce rapid cell turnover and skin cell production by elimination of necrotic tissue, speeding up the general healing of the skin. Allantoin is, above all, used for its natural healing abilities for acne and rosacea and is perfect for the treatment of: skin sores, lesions, scalds, burns and sunburns, blemishes, spots, acne and skin eruptions, fissures and abrasions, impetigo, eczema and psoriasis.
Iron Oxides – These are natural inorganic pigments that colour our mineral cosmetics beautifully.
