Formulated with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, Alima mineral foundation makes the perfect concealer-meets-sunscreen. The Portland, OR based company creates products which are certified as a “natural cosmetic” by the German BDIH organization (typically, European certification means more than American, where “natural” is virtually meaningless). With over 50 shades to choose from in the Satin Matte Foundation alone, Alima is focused on getting your color right. In addition to their well-priced foundations and finishing powders priced between $10-19, they also sell sample sizes for $1-$1.50 so you can try before you buy! As a community focused company, each month Alima Cosmetics donates five percent of its proceeds to women’s organizations like the Global Fund for Women and Living Beyond Breast Cancer.
