Hi I’m Jameela, owner of Bohemian Chic Minerals. First of all, let me introduce myself, my story, and my mission. BCM started in June 2011 after 3 years of researching and experimenting (on myself), until I found the perfect, animal free formula that worked wonders for sensitive skin.
For years I suffered from sensitive skin. Most products reacted to my skin and as time went by, I noticed that products that I could use with minimal reaction started to react pretty badly, especially cosmetics . Eventually I had to stop wearing cosmetics, My poor skin couldn’t take it any more, but that didn’t stop me from trying to find the perfect solution. I tired almost every “pure”, “natural”, “botanical” product that I found or was recommended . Some were ok-ish and others were a complete mistake. And my poor face paid the price. Peeling, flakey, burning and itching. After years of tormenting my skin I had to stop. I felt I had no other choice, my face suffered enough and boy did it show.
About 4 years later, I came across a mineral make up stall in Uxbridge, and the lovely, but persistent sales lady convinced me to try this brand new make up range that is perfect for sensitive skin.
At first I thought “yeah yeah yeah…I’ve heard all this before …”blah blah blah pure”… “good for sensitive skin”… “won’t react”… ugh”
So I thought ‘why not just give it a go’ and see what happens. It was an “OMG” moment… how impressed I was with this brand! It felt so light, natural and best of all, not irritating. I found the perfect make up brand, all natural, all minerals, and as pure as they come. After about few hours, my skin began to itch and burn, but the reaction wasn’t as bad as it normally is but the irritation was still there.
Instead of giving up… again, I researched the ingredients, hoping to find something, just a little something that would give me a clue or an idea as to what it is my skin doesn’t like, and help me figure out what I can use instead of what I can’t use! (Let’s face it… there are far too many “can’ts” for me to list). I googled the entire ingredient list and found out that even minerals can be irritants.
So, my search began again. This time to create some thing just as pure but with out the minerals that react badly on sensitive skin. Finally after years of research, spending hours at the computer, mixing minerals in the kitchen (as the living room was out of bounds after spilling 50 grams of mica and green iron oxide, which didn’t go down too well with the carpet). But after mixing and testing on myself, I finally found a formula that worked with my skin. Minimal ingredient list, no additives, no alcohol,no animal ingredients, no chemicals.
Bohemian Chic Minerals was created.
