Ingredient List

Ingredient List Below and Extra Information

Make Up Beware:
Cornstarch (also called Zea Mays or corn starch) and rice starch. Starch obtained from corn and sometimes used as an absorbent in cosmetics instead of talc. However, when cornstarch becomes moist, it can promote fungal and bacterial growth leading to possibly causing acne.
Look for fragrance to be at least in the middle or towards the end of ingredient list. Frangrance is the #1 irritant in products.
Educate Yourself!

How to use the ingredient list
Sample Below
Ingredient List  (Pore Clogging)  (Irritation)
Acetone 0 5 - this ingred. has no pore clogging but is highly irritable to the skin

To understand this list, note that the numbers are 0-5 for pore clogging and/or irritation. 5 is the highest. Use this as a guide line. Anything 3 or higher is a huge RED Flag. 2 and below could present a problem over time. If there are many low clogging/irritating ingredients, be aware. This is not an exact science but a guide line.
Not on this list, not all alcohol's and all the botanical/essential oils. When I see multiple oils (any kind) in a product it raises question. Be aware that too many oils could be a problem. Also any citrus type ingredients/oils (orange, grapefruit, lemon) can all be very irritating to skin and acne, however lower on the list can be ok.
