Ahava "mineral" makeup

I saw Ahava mineral makeup in local department store and of course I had to a closer look :D

Skin-friendly makeup, enriched with Dead Sea minerals, anti oxidants Dunaliella seaweed & nourishing plant extracts. Leaves the skin soft & healthy, supplies natural UVA/UVB protection.
Mineral Makeup Care line smoothes over fine wrinkles & imperfection, for a natural glowing look. Suitable for sensitive skin / Allergy tested / Non comedogenic / Fragrance free / Paraben free / Not tested on animals.

Unfortunately my joy didn't last for a long time: liquid makeup is full of silicones and loose powders contain PFTE...

polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene that finds numerous applications. PTFE is most well known by the DuPont brand name Teflon. Wikipedia

Näin Ahavan uudet "mineraali"meikit Sokoksella ja pakkohan niitä oli tutkia tarkemmin :D Inciä lukiessa pettymys tuli kuitenkin nopeasti... Meikkivoide on täyttä silkonimömmöä ja puutereista löytyi jopa teflonia (PTFE). Hoh-hoijaa.
