Does your makeup support the health of your skin?

Is there such a thing as skin-friendly makeup?


For many of us, makeup forms a part of our daily routine, brightening and perfecting our complexion and allowing us to enhance our natural features. The new generation of makeup is designed to work harder – as well as providing good coverage, you can also expect Ultraceuticals products to help protect your skin in the long run.

Here we take a look at some of the innovative cosmeceuticals that can help skin both inside and out.

A flawless tint with SPF

A key element in preserving your skin’s natural youthfulness and radiance is sun protection. Photoageing can have detrimental effects on both the look and feel of your skin, so it is important to be proactive about protecting it. Fortunately, for makeup wearers, sun protection and coverage no longer has to be a two-step process.

Our Ultra UV Protective Daily Moisturiser SPF 30 Sheer Tint is a fast-absorbing moisturising formula with a broad spectrum SPF 30 to protect against the damaging effects of UVA and UVB. It also contains a powerful blend of barrier-protecting ingredients such as soothing Shea Butter, Nicotinamide and Panthenol to provide moisture and enforce the skin’s barrier function.

The sheer tint products a subtle, natural-looking hint of colour, evening out the appearance of your skin. Apply daily using your fingers to work the formula into your face and neck 20 minutes prior to sun exposure.

Alternatively, you can boost your sun protection with our Ultra UV Protective Daily Shield Mineral Defence SPF 50+. Its mineral formula is designed to blend seamlessly with your skin tone for a matte, non-greasy finish that you can wear all day long. Recommended for all skin types, it contains antioxidants to help support the health of your skin, and conditioning ingredients for a smoother, moisturised complexion.

Introducing the Ultraceuticals CC Range

If you are a fan of light, buildable coverage without the need to use a heavy foundation, the Ultra CC Range could be the perfect match for you. Suitable for all skin types (even sensitive skin), our triple-milled mineral powder contains our exclusive anti-ageing triple-complex with Microelastin®, Artocarpus Extract and Vitamin B3 to smooth and brighten.

This mineral powder is paraben, talc and preservative free, and comes in four shades to adapt to your natural skin tone. Simply press and roll onto clean, moisturised skin using a kabuki brush. Build up coverage as desired.

Ready, set, go! 

Before you leave the house, set your makeup with a finishing spray to give your natural look true staying power. The Ultra Balancing Skin Mist is a true multi-tasker, featuring antioxidants such as Vitamin C and Green Tea to help protect the skin against environmental factors, whilst hydrating Provitamin B5 and Bisabolol leaves your skin feeling balanced and refreshed.

If your skin has been feeling dried out and stressed, the Balancing Mist can provide much needed relief thanks to the calming properties of Aloe Vera and Allantoin. It can be used as a refreshing toner, or as a fine mist to set your makeup. If you live in a particularly dry climate, or you work in an air conditioned environment all day, keep the Balancing Skin Mist on hand to prevent skin from feeling dry and taut.
