    Thanks for your replies.

    I've checked the ingredients again on the mineral powder I am using at the moment (Body Shop Extra Virgin Minerals) and the only ingredients are

    Mica (Opacifier), Titanium Dioxide (Sunscreen), Kaolin (Absorbent), Illite (Anticaking Agent). [+/- CI 77492 (Colour), CI 77491 (Colour), CI 77499 (Colour), CI 77891 (Colour)].

    I am not sure what ingredient is the problem but I am pretty sure it is the makeup causing the acne as it only normally flares up after about 3-4 days of continuous usage. No makeup seems to equal no acne.

    Does Mineral Makeup Cause Acne
    Hi All

    I am interested to hear if anyone here thinks that their mineral makeup causes acne and makes them break out.

    I know that mineral makeup is often touted as being non comodogenic because of it's ingrdients but I have been finding that after a few days use of several different types of powder mineral makeup I've tried I still get some very nasty spots.

    I just wonder if because mineral makeup has such fine particles these actually settle more within the pores, mix with natural oils and clog pores. I have also read differing opinions on whether mica (often main component of mineral makeup) is really non comodogenic.

    Anyone had any similar experiences?
