Over time, the focus on the ingredients used in any beauty regime has greatly increased. So, given its aesthetic effects and skin benefits, there is no surprise to see Mica minerals taking the spotlight for conversation in the beauty arena.
Mica is a silicate mineral. It is the term for 34 layers of flaky crystal minerals containing silicate. Mica comes in many variations from the diverse way that it is formed, for example from volcanoes and hydrothermal vents. It is ground down to form a fine, sparkling powder, which is evident in the glistening flashes of light that we see in rocks such as granite and slate, as well as the various ranges of colours that the mineral can be found in, from silver and white, to pink and purple tones, making it even more beautiful!
The word “mica” is thought to have derived from the Latin word, “micare”, which roughly translated, means “to glitter”. This is why we love Mica so much at Able! It reflects light from your face, promoting an illuminating glow, while helping to smooth, soften, and reveal a more radiant complexion.
Why not try a Mica based beauty product and see the difference it can make for you? Once again, Able is at the forefront of innovation by utilising this beautiful ingredient in our latest products like Anti-Ageing Radiance Platinum Sleeping Mask, which smoothes wrinkles and fine lines, helps the skin glow and protects skin against free radicals.
