Frequently Asked Questions
What is Beach Powder?
Beach Powder is an all-natural, talc-free powder for removing sand from the skin. It’s made from a mixture of plant and mineral powders and scented with vanilla. The plant powders in Beach Powder absorb the moisture on your skin so that sand falls off, whilst the mineral powders in the formula provide extremely gentle natural exfoliation. The result is that beach powder leaves the skin totally sand-free and feeling incredibly silky.
What is Beach Powder Shimmer?
Beach Powder Shimmer not only removes sand from the body but also adds a subtle, sun-shiny glitter effect to the skin at the same time. It is talc-free, vanilla ice-cream scented and leaves your skin sand-free, smooth and sparkly! The cosmetic glitter used is made from natural minerals and is plastic-free, so it won’t pollute the sea or the water sources.
Is Beach Powder talc?
No! Talcum powder is hydrated magnesium silicate - H2Mg3(SiO3)4. which is not an ingredient of beach powder. Several studies conducted over the past 25 years have found an association between talcum powder and ovarian cancer. What’s more, particles in talcum powder are very fine which means it can cause respiratory problems and lung disorders if it is inhaled. All the plant and mineral powders in the Beach Powder formula have bigger particles than those in talcum powder, meaning that they are less likely to be inhaled or absorbed into the body.
Beach Powder Shimmer contains synthetic fluorphlogopite - what on earth’s that?
The synthetic fluorphlogopite in Beach Powder Shimmer is sometimes referred to as synthetic mica. It mimics the effect of natural mica but it’s made by scientists. Although it’s a man-made substance, it is constructed of natural minerals, so don’t let the word “synthetic” put you off!
