glōminerals does not contain talc. Talcum powder is generally used as a bulking agent. It allows cosmetic companies to increase the amount of the product for the pigment utilized. This addition results in a product that has greater oil-absorbing properties, but requires more product to be applied to the skin to achieve the desired coverage. The lack of talc in glominerals means that you can achieve fuller coverage using less product and the makeup feels lighter on the skin,lasting throughout the day. The product will last longer than a comparable talc-containing product. Products that contain talc can have adverse effects. A talc particle is heavier than a mineral pigment and will settle into both pores and wrinkles. Therefore, products containing talc are more likely to accentuate wrinkles and clog pores. Talc may also exacerbate skin conditions like acne and rosacea. Skin irritation may occur with the use of products containing talc, especially on sensitive skin types. glōminerals products are beneficial for all skin types and conditions. glōminerals lies on top of the skin’s surface, evening out complexions without accentuating imperfections.

COVID-19 NOTICE

Due to Covid-19, non-essential skin condition appointments will be rescheduled and our offices will be closed until further notice. Our phone lines are still open to receive incoming calls for urgent matters and refills. Please keep in mind that refills will be answered within 24-48 hours from initial call.

We are also offering TeleMedicine as an alternative for those patients who want to keep in touch but do not require in-person care. Most insurances will be honored as usual. TeleMedicine appointments are digital visits, performed from the comfort of your home using your cell phone, tablet or camera-enabled computer. You will be able to speak with and see your provider in real-time. The provider will ask you to use your camera to show them the rash, spot, or condition you are concerned about, and will proceed to counsel you and prescribe medications as applicable, just like an in-office visit.

If you wish to schedule a TeleMedicine or in-office appointment, please call your preferred location.

Finally, take care of yourselves and take care of those within your community.
Please remember that all those working to provide “essential” services are working tirelessly, doing their very best to support you.
