PLEASE READ ON!!! IT IS IMPORTANT FOR YOUR HEALTH~~~~
Loose Powders and Mineral Makeup is something every one have. Often we think that the finer the powder the better, but it DOES pose a health problem for the users.
There are alot reasons listed on the internet about if mineral make up is really good for us. The ingredient used in mineral make up is good for our skin in terms of the inertness of the minerals meaning there are no chemicals and binders so less reactions towards our skin and skin chemistry.
But the health hazzards concerned with using mineral make up and loose powders is the size of these particles can sometimes be classified as nano particles. when you swirl your brush with the powder you can see fine dust flying around and when you apply to your face, there's a high chance of you breathing in those fine particles.
I did some research, micro sized particles doesn't to as much harm because it won't be small enough to enter the lung's vacuoles but the nano sized particles can enter and hard for the lungs to get rid of them, over time the tissue of the lungs deteriate.
I know this because in lab I work with silica particles for column choromotography. and they make us wear masks because of the dangers of breathing in fine particles. This eventually cause a disease called silicoses which has NO CURE... Click HERE to read about silicoses.
Titanium dioxide is often used in sunscreen SPFs in the cosmetic products, but when breathed in it pose a health hazzard for the lungs and labs have tested to have carcinogenic (cancer causing)effect.
