Natural Mineral Pigments - Dangerous, Real, Safe?

Is there such a thing as a natural mineral pigment?
Yes, but they are too toxic for human use, often being high in arsenic and heavy metals. Colors of Nature only selects pigments that meet our stringent standards and deemed as ‘acceptable synthetics’, which are pigments that have had minimal chemistry applied to the raw mineral to remove naturally occurring toxins and/or to intensify their color. Fully synthetic pigments are not acceptable for Colors of Nature paints, as these have no base in nature and are usually derived from petroleum.  For more information, please visit our parent company, The Organic Make-up Company, and read more about this topic in the article entitled Natural vs Synthetic.
