Youngblood is a brand of mineral powder that’s supposed to be “made from a real source, not just another mineral powder” because it’s supposed, as its website says, to “create the appearance of a mineral-rich skin.”
However, EWG’s website actually makes it seem like the company is trying to make its own mineral powder by using a “unique blend of minerals” instead of the “standard” ingredients that you typically find in mineral powder.
According to its website, Youngblood uses “pure organic organic organic extracts of the minerals, including the rarest minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, and a mixture of natural and synthetic extracts.”
As for the mineral powder ingredients, the company makes a “simple mix” of mineral powders that it claims “have a unique blend of the best mineral-infused ingredients.”
For example, the website claims “the minerals in this mix are all bio-active and have the potential to help improve skin health and reduce signs of aging.”
But while the ingredients are supposed to “help improve skin” in the context of a “natural” mineral-based mineral-packed product, in actuality, the ingredients aren’t actually from a natural source but rather are “referred to as ‘mineral salts’ or ‘manganese sulfate’ by EWG,” the company says.
For example: “These salts are derived from the mineral cinnabar, which has been known to improve skin’s natural barrier function.”
The website also states that the minerals in the “manganite salt blend” are “natural and naturally derived” but, as noted by Salon.com, they’re “made with a synthetic ingredient called ‘nanoacrylate,’ a synthetic filler that is chemically made up of carbon atoms, and which, as such, can be used in skin creams, makeup, and hair care products.”
In fact, the ingredient in the Youngblood mineral powder is actually “nanoacyclic” (which means it contains three or more carbon atoms), which means it’s composed of a single molecule of hydrogen and oxygen.
In other words, it’s a synthetic substance that contains three atoms of the same carbon atom.
It’s this chemical structure that makes the Young, “a natural mineral-filled mineral powder,” “natural,” and “organic,” and it’s why it’s labeled as “organic” and not “natural.”
And as Salon points out, the Young is also “produced using the highest quality ingredients and processes,” and its “most popular formulations include an all-natural peptone, a mineral water solution, and natural oils.”
The ingredients listed on the YoungBlood website are actually “organic ingredients” and are “not manufactured in the U.S.A.”
The company is also touting its products as “made to last,” which is to say that they’ll last for a “long time.”
In other word, it claims its mineral-laden mineral-powder will “harden, moisturize, and smooth skin for a long time.”
The YoungBlood product description also says that “these mineral powdels have a unique, natural feel that gives your skin a natural glow and gives your complexion a bright glow.”
However and unfortunately, when you actually see the Young blood mineral powder product in person, it looks very much like a product that’s made to last.
For instance, when I tried to use the product on my face, I had to take off the moisturizer and sunscreen to find that the powder wasn’t even moisturizing.
When I put on the sunscreen, it felt like it was just going to clog my pores and make my skin look oily.
When it comes to skin care products, you have to be careful with these types of ingredients because, as Salon notes, “the ingredients are not manufactured in America.”
The product has an 8-month shelf life on Amazon, but the company has yet to respond to Salon’s requests for comment.
In a statement to Salon, YoungBlood says, “We are proud to offer our products in the US as we believe they are of the highest standard, providing our customers with the highest levels of quality and comfort.
As we continue to expand our products worldwide, we are working with our manufacturing partners to ensure we meet the needs of our customers worldwide.
We will continue to work with our partners to deliver our products to our customers in the best way possible, with the utmost care and respect for our brands.”
While Youngblood does have a good track record of selling products in its stores, the “quality and comfort” claim does seem to be misleading.
For starters, the claims about the product’s longevity claim are misleading.
The Young blood product, as described by the website, has “the potential to last a long, long time” when it comes “to protecting your skin from harmful environmental and chemical pollutants.”
But as Salon noted, “you can’t get
