Reduction of facial imperfections, reduction of shine and better fixation of make-up are just some of the immeasurable advantages currently offered by the compact powders. However, in its beginnings, the aim was completely different.
The invention of pressed powders is believed to date back to long before the 1400s, when pale skin was a sign of high social class, wealth and aristocracy. In order to achieve this, women were able to apply powders to their faces, which later proved to be harmful and toxic to the skin, until the benefits of zinc oxide were discovered.
Then, some 500 years later, specifically in 1900, the firm Max Factor formulated a compact powder that was more affordable, and it was also used exclusively by actors and actresses. It was not until 1918 that powders in different shades, designed for all skin types, began to be produced.
This cosmetic quickly gained popularity and fame, and the beauty industry opted to make pressed powders available to everyone. Their benefits evolved over the years. However, in the 1980s, some brands added sun protection to the revered pressed powder. Today, they even include moisturising, anti-ageing, anti-shine and non-comedogenic active ingredients that, far from damaging the skin, protect it on a daily basis.
Are you ready to add the benefits of pressed powder to your daily routine?
Once you discover the advantages of pressed powders, it is very difficult to exclude them from your make-up bag, as they offer fast, effective correction and evenness on the skin.
They work to seal in make-up for longer, providing a matte finish by absorbing oil from the face.
Another point in their favour is that they are a cosmetic suitable for all skin types (normal, combination or oily), and can even be used with or without foundation, as their thick texture guarantees a velvety finish.
The convenient compact is easy to carry around and helps you to touch up your make-up, reducing facial shine.
