Industry Insights

The global mineral cosmetics market size was valued at USD 2.9 billion in 2018. Rising demand for natural beauty products is driving the market over the world. As a result, the manufacturers have been introducing makeup products made of natural minerals including zinc oxide, iron oxides, titanium dioxide, organic oils, and mica powder. Most of these natural raw materials do not contain any wax additives and oil.
