Hey, friends!

I have a list of ingredients I'd like some input on. I want to know people's experiences with the following ingredients.
It's the powder I've been using -- and was raving about previously. Now I worry it may have actually had something in it that irritated my skin and contributed to breakouts. As such, I'm tapping into the knowledge of this forum in addition to doing some research!

Here it is:
Lauroyl Lysine
Zinc Stearate
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride
Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891)
Zinc Oxide (CI 77947)
Boron Nitride
Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C)
Hydrolyzed Mango Juice Extract
Hydrolyzed Garcinia Mangostana (Mangosteen) Fruit Extract
Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) Leaf Extract
Alaria Esculenta (Sea Kelp) Extract
Aspalathus Linearis (Rooibus Red Tea) Leaf Extract
Glycrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract
Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Extract
Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Extract
Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract
Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E)
Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A)
Sambucus Nigra Fruit (Elderberry)
MAY CONTAIN (+/-): Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499).

I'm confused, as all of these seem fairly okay, and I've even had positive experiences with a few of them (like sea kelp and aloe vera).
Perhaps it's the brush I'm using? Though -- the brush is mega soft and friendly!

-shakes head- Hoping I can figure this out. I'm considering purchasing a different powder just to make sure. And for now, I'm going (mostly) makeupless for a few days.

The main offender is the Lauroyl Lysine. Looks like it has a lot of good stuff in it though.

My daughter had purchased Everyday Minerals base and started breaking out. I asked my esthetician about the ingredients and she pointed out the Lauroyl Lysine. Coincidentally, Everyday Minerals came out with a new line not a few weeks later that is their "IT" base and contains no Lauroyl Lysine. I found a mineral makeup line called Jenulence that has good ingredients.

No regimen is one-size-fits-all. You are unique and so is your skin.



Black soap - Lumiplexion Salicylic Acid ~ Lumiplexion  SPF 30 ~ Lumiplexion moisturizer 


Black soap  ~ Lumiplexion Glycolic Acid 12% (3-4x week) ~ Lumiplexion Hydroquinone 1-2x week


Lumiplexion enzyme mask / sulfur mask /  moisturizing mask 1-2 week as needed
