What is Mica?
Mica is a glimmering silicate mineral that has a layered structure.
It is often found mixed up with granite or rocks like crystals and is used famously for day-to-day products such as paint, electronics, and cosmetics.
It is odorless and colorless and easily breaks into powder which makes it perfect for makeup.
Its shimmery nature makes it widely used in cosmetics such as highlighters, eye shadows, metallic lipsticks, and other cosmetic products.
While Mica is safe for use on the skin, does not trigger allergic reactions, and has no side effects, little attention is paid to how it is actually created.
This is where the deep dark secret comes in.
The dark secret about how your favorite makeup products are made is settled in the mining aspect of Mica and how it is extracted.
