Mica is the name of a group of natural occurring earth minerals that are mined from rocks.The word "mica" is actually thought to be derived from the Latin word "micare," meaning "to glitter."

Although many minerals are used as pigments in cosmetics, Mica's sheer, translucent and skin-hugging properties make it a popular ingredient in mineral powders. Mica powder reflects light from the face because of its glittering or shimmering properties, and can create the illusion of a smoother, softer and more radiant skin tone. It is heavily seen in a number of other cosmetics such as nail polishes, lip glosses and soap.
