Brand Spotlight – Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics

Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics has become an absolute staple brand here at Raptcha’u Hair & Beauty.

The brand was started by Pauline Youngblood, whom at the time was a paramedical aesthetician to dermatologists and plastic surgeons. Pauline’s patients would have extreme redness or raw skin due to harsh laser treatments, peels, acne, rosacea or cosmetic procedures. She wanted to provide them with a makeup that was safe to apply over skin whilst it was healing, and yet would still provide adequate coverage to hide the rawness or discolouration. So she developed the now ever-popular Loose Mineral Foundation.

Loose foundation

Pauline’s patients ended up loving the mineral foundation so much that they were wearing it even after their skin had healed. And so in 1996 Pauline began commercially selling the foundation, thus beginning Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics.

All Youngblood products are solely made from the earth’s minerals, and are non-comedogenic, meaning they won’t clog the pores. The range is now extremely extensive and though the Loose Mineral Foundation remains Raptcha’u’s most popular selling product, there are a multitude of products to choose from. The products are suitable for any aged skin or skin type, and the exclusion of Zinc Oxide and Talc from the ingredients of each product mean that even more mature or dryer skin types will have success with Youngblood.
