Mineral foundations are often thought to be a natural, purer alternative
to traditional, chemical-filled foundations, promoting healthier skin.
But even mineral foundations contain irritating chemicals. Bismuth
oxychloride is the ingredient found in many mineral foundation powders
responsible for adding a dewy finish to the skin. Major mineral makeup
brands use bismuth oxychloride, an ingredient that causes skin
irritation, clogged pores and even respiratory problems for some
consumers. Does this Spark an idea?
