Non micronized mineral foundation?

I read some disturbing reports about that zinc oxide and titanium dioxide can give you cancer if the particles are nano particles. When it says that it´s non micronized does it mean that the particles aren´t so small as nano-particles and that´s its safe to use?

Do anyone now what I´m talking about , and make me wiser about this:)?

Since a lot of us uses mineral makeup with those two ingredients I like to now more about this.

I know that zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are used in sunscreen and it´s common i other makeups to.

You would have to ask each company what size particles they work with to know for sure.

I make my own mineral make-up and will not use particles under 4 microns. It is my belief that anything smaller is unsafe.

I just found this on the AN website...

"Please NOTE that we do NOT use any Micronized ingredients in the formulations of our Mineral Makeup"

But I still want to here what EM has to say!

I got answer from both EM and AN.

Both are safe :). Both are non-micronized.
