As mica is a naturally produced silicate mineral, it is a particularly well-loved hypoallergenic ingredient that is safe for sensitive skin, as well as a more natural solution for women looking for solutions on how to treat eczema and other skin concerns in fully vegan, organic and natural makeup products.
Read on to learn exactly why its natural beauty benefits and more shine in this month’s #IngredientSpotliht: Mica!
1. It provides low-grade sun protection!
Generally, a sunscreen ingredient list will consist primarily of either chemical or physical blocks to filter the sun’s damaging rays. Mica in fully vegan, organic and natural makeup products acts as the latter, sheathing the skin in a layer of low-grade sun protection! In fact, it may even provide further defense from blue light, a frequently overlooked type of radiation that we need protection from as they are emitted from the digital devices we use daily!
2. It contains no harmful chemicals that cause irritation!
Compared to talc, mica is a gentler and less drying option on the skin. In fact, it plays incredibly well in a team and may even boost the efficacy of another hypoallergenic ingredient or two in fully vegan, organic and natural makeup products. As mentioned in the previous point, mica is also a physical UV block, so it simply lays on top of the skin and doesn’t lodge as easily into the pores as talc does. This means that it can be washed off with a simple organic and natural skincare cleanser, reducing the chances of clogged pores, dull skin, breakouts and more!
3. It follows ethical, safe makeup manufacturing regulations!
Shining natural beauty benefits and more…yes, you read right! The natural beauty benefits of mica go beyond skin-deep, and it makes us glow with pride to say that we are committed to ensuring that the mica we use in our fully vegan, organic and natural makeup products at Liht Organics are cruelty free and obtained through ethical means.

However, we choose not to avoid but to face what we need to do: finding a sustainable solution.
