This is one of those ingredients that helps improve your skin; I love adding it to my ALL facial products!It is very easy to add it to your homemade products or store bought loose makeup. As the product info indicates though, no more than 2% is needed--so a little goes a long way!
I add this to all of my foundations...This is a must have! I also add it to my flawless veil..I also made a nighttime mineral treatment, and I added this to it also. It has healing properties, and it really works! It makes the skin softer...and is soothing to the skin...Add it to your foundations and you will love it too!
Love it and add it to my body powders. Customers love the feeling and healing properties it adds. Great in mineral foundations, too. It is actually another good powder to add to body butters and even small amounts to bath bombs, anywhere a person can "soak" it up. I won't run out! Great price!
I like using this as an aid to help heal be it in my foundation or night minerals as well as an eczema lotion i make my son. With 2% usage rate, the price is fabulous as it lasts a long long time.
