Did bareMinerals change their formula?

bareMinerals has consistently claimed that it has maintained its original foundation formula, which has remained the same since its launch in 1995.

bareMinerals prides itself in providing clean beauty that is cruelty-free, vegan, organic and free of all other cosmetic toxins. The ethos of the brand has always advocated for minimalistic coverage that is lightweight and not harmful to the skin. bareMinerals has kept the same formula since its launch in 1995, with the exception of altering the pigment to provide more inclusive shades.

According to the official website, “Five mineral ingredients. Millions of fans. One game-changing foundation. Launched in 1995, bareMinerals Original Loose Mineral Foundation revolutionized the beauty industry with its clean, good-for-skin formula.”

bareMinerals has also stated that the five clean products used in the foundation powder are: Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide for mineral sun protection, Bismuth Oxychloride and Mica for a luminous finish and silky, soft-skin feel, and Iron Oxides for clean, natural-looking colour and coverage – all of which have not changed since 1995.
