I have figured out that I have a problem with makeup that contains metals (iron oxide, titanium, etc.) I don't wear jewelry because of my skin's reaction to the metals. I quit wearing makeup sometime ago because it irritated my skin so much, but never connected the two. I do once in a while but always pay dearly. A friend mentioned she had a metal allergy and couldn't use the Bare Minerals because it contained metals - she let me try hers and my face went crazy. The makeup did look fantastic before the rash came up. Dammit.
Anyway, I started reading the labels of the foundations and powders at various stores, EVERY ONE has some form of metal in it. Makeup for "sensitive skin" isn't enough for me.
Is anyone aware of any powder/foundation that does not contain metals, or do they not exist?
