Younique Mineral Powder is one of the UK’s most sought after mineral powders.
It is used in jewellery, beauty products, and even body care products.
The brand is currently being tested by the Royal Australian Mint as part of their latest testing programme for minerals.
While youniques mineral powder has been in the market for over a decade, its been on the rise in recent years.
Younique started making its name selling its mineral powder in 2013.
In 2017, the brand received a UK patent for its mineral dust formulation.
Its still sold in the UK as a mineral powder for cosmetic purposes.
Now youniquas brand is being tested in the US by the US Mint as they attempt to get its mineral content into their new “nano-technology” mints.
It is expected to be approved by the mint later this year.
As for the UK, younquas is still selling its product in bulk and is currently undergoing testing at the Royal Mint.
According to the Royal British Mint, youns mineral powder is now considered a “natural and safe alternative to mineral oil, which has been banned in the U.K.”
In 2018, the Royal United Services Institute released its own “nanoscientific” report, which stated that the mineral powderies were “likely to contribute to cancer and other harmful environmental effects”.
The report also stated that youniss powders were likely to “contaminate the environment”.
Despite these findings, younes mineral powder remains widely used by some in the cosmetics industry.
And while the Royal American Mint is currently testing the products for toxicity, the company told The Guardian that its product would not be on the UK market.
“We do not plan to introduce the nano-technology mint at this time,” said the Royal Royal American.
So younishes mineral powder won’t be available in the British market, and its not yet clear whether or not it will be banned in its entirety.
If younish is banned in Britain, the UK Mint will be the first to launch a new mint in its nano-tech mint.
This will likely mean its still possible to find your local brand of younix in the coming weeks.
