Natural Makeup - Loose Face Powder: An Organic & Chemical-Free Alternative

Let me clarify something at the very beginning itself; this post is not about any organic or natural makeup products. Rather, it is an organic/natural and chemical-free alternative that can be included in your makeup routine.

Natural Makeup

In this post, I'm covering the various easily available natural ingredients that can be used as a makeup product- loose face/setting powder, depending on your skin type and complexion.

I have been using these 'ingredients' for a little more than a year now, without any kind of allergic reactions. This means a lot because I have sensitive skin and certain face powders make me itchy and scratchy. There were zero reactions to them.

The following ingredients are not just natural but they are also helpful for your skin. I have listed some of their benefits. Maybe this will make you consider this chemical-free alternative in your makeup/ natural makeup.

Bentonite Clay Powder

  • Evens out skin tone
  • Unclogs pores and shrinks them
  • Controls blackheads and whiteheads by reducing the production of sebum
  • Draws out toxins
  • Makes skin softer
  • Excellent exfoliator
  • Safe even for sensitive skin
  • Rejuvenates skin and adds a glow to your face

Bentonite Clay Powder

I often buy Bentonite Clay Powder by Kamdhenu. At Rs. 230/- for 250gms, it is very affordable and this quantity lasts really long. I trust this brand and I would definitely recommend it to others.

White Kaolin Clay Powder

  • Soaks up excess oils
  • Prevents breakouts by cleansing and detoxifying the pores
  • Gentle on skin
  • Soothes sensitive and  irritated skin
  • Effective for treating acne
  • Exfoliates dead skin
Kaolin Clay

There are various shades of Kaolin Clay, like Red, Yellow and Pink. You can choose one to be a part of your natural makeup depending on your complexion. I have chosen white as I add it to Bentonite Clay powder, which is tan in color and matches my complexion.

Arrow Root Powder

Arrowroot starch is used in baby powders and as a thickening agent in cooking. So it's safe to say it can be used on the face as a natural makeup without any side effects.

Arrow Root Powder
  • Treats skin infection and itchiness
  • Gives a soft and smooth feel to the skin
  • Possesses great emollient qualities
  • Dries out rashes, sores and minor lesions on the skin
  • Can be used as a treatment for sunburns

Conclusion:

Bentonite clay is widely used and considered to be the safest clay to use on the face. If you are not sure of which clay to use, go ahead with Bentonite. You can also add Arrowroot powder (which is another non-irritant ingredient) to the Bentonite clay to match it to your complexion.

All the ingredients mentioned in this post have been proven to be beneficial to skin. This is just one small step to remove one chemical-laden makeup product from our daily makeup routine.  Hope this helps!
