During her career as a medical aesthetician, Pauline Youngblood was in daily contact with patients who had severely traumatized skin from harsh laser treatments, acne, rosacea and cosmetic surgeries. Such patients often take up to six months before their skin returns to normal, and Pauline simply was not satisfied with the makeup options available.
Pauline began working with chemists to develop a suitable option - a product that would cover raw, inflamed or discoloured skin, while allowing it to breathe and heal. This led to her initial work with natural mineral cosmetics.
“The concept of mineral makeup was great, but the quality was missing,” Pauline says. “The colours weren’t realistic; they were too pink or orange, and they looked artificial.”
She began formulating her first loose mineral foundation, which provided excellent coverage and a natural appearance without clogging the skin. Pauline’s patients experienced such dramatic success with her new formula that they continued using it long after their skin had healed. Before long, patients and friends convinced her to make this natural mineral foundation commercially available, and in 1996 Pauline founded Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics.
More than 17 years later, Pauline’s Natural Mineral Foundation is the flagship product, and Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics is now a complete professional line, offering a wide range of products in a comprehensive palette of shades with realistic skin tones and beautiful, natural finishes. Youngblood continues to create high quality products that are innovative in both formulation and packaging.
