Is MiXFits natural or organic?
We can say MiXFits is both natural and organic. “Natural” is not defined by the FDA, meaning it is a marketing term that be defined in lots of ways. “Organic” isn’t defined by the FDA for cosmetics. While we can say MiXFits is “natural” in the sense that our products have simple, buildable formulas that let you choose what you wear, the ingredients do not necessarily occur in nature (nor would you want them to for makeup use), and we could say MiXFits is “organic” because the ingredients we use are cultivated without pesticides or hormones, but we’re talking about mostly inert minerals and man-made materials. Therefore, we opt to not be confusing or manipulative, and we don’t claim to be either natural or organic. Instead, we are working hard to offer customization options so you have control over what you put on your skin, whatever your preference.
Are some Colors stronger than others?
All products are potent in pigment and dye to serve the needs of both dark and fair skin complexions. Weak pigment and dye concentrations are less likely to show on dark skin, but high concentrations in our Colors do. You can’t make a Color more potent, but you can dilute Colors by using the Unattached Element as a Color. The Dye Colors are the most apt to stain skin, not necessarily because they are stronger. Their nature is to stain. If you are concerned about stains, you can try diluting, using only a tiny amount of Dyes in your formulas or omit using that Color altogether.
Do I have to use the mixing bags?
The mixing bags are the easiest, most thorough, and safest means of mixing the Colors and the Elements. If you try to mix them on a palette or in a pot with a utensil (like a brush or spatula) the Colors will likely smudge and streak when you apply it. You can try a pestle/mortar, however, these can get messy, waste product, and potentially expose you to dust that you do not want to inhale. Though blenders are acceptable to mix Colors, we do not recommend them for mixing because the sharp blades will destroy certain functional ingredients in Elements.
