Mineral Makeup Ingredients

Although there are basic, common Mineral Makeup Ingredients, the actual ingredients vary from brand to brand. When choosing a mineral foundation your first decision is do you want a formula with as few ingredients as possible or do you want additional ingredients that may be beneficial to the skin or are you most concerned with coverage, etc.
