  1. Thanks a ton. Searching for the right, healthy makeup for my acne prone skin has been a struggle for years. I’m using an organic wear foundation by them and used to use the Burt’s bees for a couple years prior to the last year or so. I know it isn’t the best like you said yourself. I’ve researched ingredients for hours on end and when I go out, I always look at labels and feel bombarded with chemicals. I feel like people are finally able to realize things like this with technology though. I believe with time, it will all get better! We all just need to stick together.

  2. Hi,
    Thank you so much for the information. I have decided to stop using physicians formula based on all the potentially harmul ingredients, especially aluminum. Alluminum is the reason I went to a more natural deodorant. What do you think about Burts Bees? They are more of a reasonably priced makeup that claim to be 99-100% natural. I love their lip products and was considering using their face makeup. Thank you!

    1. Hi, Crystal: Thank you for asking. I can take a look at Burt’s Bee next time I circle back to makeup. In the meantime, would you be interested in a consultation with me regarding Burt’s Bee? ~Irina

  3. So!! After reading what youve suggested, i feel saddened that the man who invented this product originally to help with his wifes tender skin,would be most likely very unhappy at what has devolved. Im 71; im a redhead; have skin that has been sun damaged; and im in a terrible quandry about trying to find an effective, and safe product for my skin. I do not go out in the sun any more than i absolutely have to do. I use a moisturizer before i put on “” make up”. Ive been advised to use a product with zinc oxide. Its very difficult find products that are SAFE AND EFFECTIVE. Would you assist me? Im grateful for your suggestions

    1. I hear you, Alice. Thank you for asking! I have not found a product that does all three function: moisturizer, sunscreen, and foundation. I really like Blissoma moisturizer with SPF. You can read more about it and other SPF moisturizers here: As for the foundation, I like this one: Let me know what you think and if you need further assistance. Thank you! I also provide with private consultations. ~Irina

  4. Thank you SOooo VERY MUCH Irina for taking the time to educate us about the negatives and potential harm of Physicians Formula. I appreciate it so very much! While I am NOT that educated about ingredients, after looking at the list I did recognize some concerns and you have clarified them.

    I am new to your website, so I am anxious to read more of your suggestions! This is WONDERFUL to connect with someone who is SAVVY on these Topics of Health and Beauty! 🙂

    Heaven’s Blessings,


      1. Hi Irina,
        Yes, I am so VERY IMPRESSED with your site! IT IS JUST WONDERFUL! I am sharing it with my Girlfriends who are truly Health Conscious with their Beauty Products! The labeling is a MAZE that puts me in a DAZE! 🙂 So, Bless your heart for all of your efforts to educate us. I am sure that it takes so much time, I can only imagine. 🙂

        I have been using Pacifica and Mineral Fusion and yet with your warnings I am looking closer at the labels and I just can’t find hardly ANY companies that don’t use chemicals like the Titanium Dioxide even in their loose powders of course. I took a look at some of that research as well. So, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS WARNING about the loose powder hazards; “Titanium Dioxide: I know that some of you heard that titanium dioxide is linked to cancer. Please know that it is linked to cancer only when it is inhaled in loose powdered form.” I am glad to know that it is just the “loose powder” formulations that have an issue.

        My, I can’t find any loose translucent powder though without it except for the Crunchi Company (well, I saw a couple of other Companies, but then they were even more expensive like $75 for powder and Crunchi’s is only $34 and it probably will last a long time) that you have recommended, so I will purchase it from them. Although the higher end truly healthy makeup lines are so pricey but to protect our Health (and therefore Physical Beauty) is imperative.


        Heaven’s Blessings upon you & yours Irina,

  5. Irina,

    Thank you for all your information. You’re a wealth of knowledge. Have you heard of Adama minerals and wondered if you’ve ever analyzed their ingredients. I’m new to your site and love it!
