What is the difference between M*A*D Minerals and all of the other zillion brands out there?
The only differences you will find between M*A*D Minerals products and the other companies are the prices & many of the other companies' products contain Bismuth Oxychloride which may cause many women's skin to itch and/or break out. We do not use Bismuth Oxychloride in any of our products.

How are we able to offer them at a much cheaper price?
We do not use any fancy packaging, labels, high priced advertising, paid models, television infomercials, and the list goes on. Someone has to pay for all that! I know I sure dont want to pay for it. I want the product itself because once that fancy jar is empty; it will most likely go in the trash. However, I encourage people to save our not so fancy jars. They are completely washable & reusable. We offer refills that are packaged in little zip baggies to save you even more money. The only advertising we use is "Word of Mouth" by people that are actually using our products, and it is not only the best advertisement, but it is also Free! We offer samples for purchase,so you can experiment with a variety of shades & see for yourself how they work with your very own coloring before committing to full sizes. Give Salon Minerals a try and if it doesn't work for you, well at least you know & your not out of a large chunk of money. However, if you love our products, then we know you will be back for more! Simple as that.
