Mica is a naturally occurring mineral found in an array of Alima’s products.
An essential ingredient found in most of our products, Muscovite mica is the most common form of mica and comes in a variety of grades that range from matte to lustrous. You may recognize this versatile mineral from the pearlescent glimmer in our eye shadows to the luminous glow of our finishing powders.
Refined and luxurious, cosmetic mica creates the following:
-a silky texture that adds smoothness to your skin,
-a long-lasting, soft-focus look that enhances and evens out your complexion, and
-the ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores.
The name mica, thought to come from the Latin word micare meaning “to shine,” is quite fitting for our product since the high quality mica we use literally lets your natural beauty shine through.

Bronzing your skin when you are at your February-palest can be tricky territory--you don't want to end up like the woman on the left! But with Alima Pure's mineral Bronzer, you never need to worry about being orange or obvious, and can count on a natural, healthy bronzed glow like the woman on the right.
With five shades that work for skin ranging from über-light to delightfully deep, Alima Pure has a bronzer that will work for you. If you are on the lightest end of the spectrum, Maracaibo is the bronzer of your dreams...the first bronzer that won't make you look orange or dirty, with just enough color to give you a healthy glow. For those with skin from light to medium, Mauna Loa is the matte option, or Belize for a touch more sun and a hint of shimmer. And for deeper skin tones, Trinidad is the matte choice, while Seychelles adds a touch of sparkle.
Keep your bronzer looking natural by applying it with our #23 Kitten Brush. Dust the bronzer on the places that the sun touches first; the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, forehead, even the decolletage. To make it more authentic, add a bit of a Satin Matte Blush in a brighter shade (for your complexion) on the apples of the cheeks.
Alima Pure Bronzers are 20% off until February 27 at 2pm PST. Stock up now to keep your look naturally bronzed through spring and summer!
