Ingredients to stay away from?

So I'm kind of confused. Which ingredients in mineral makeup should I stay away from? I've heard of bismuth being a possible irritant, but I also see stuff about talc and zinc oxide. So what should I be wary of, and what are good brands that you've noticed have actually improved your skin?

Everyone is different, and one person might have a reaction to one ingredient, where as one might not.

Because the majority of people experiencing reactions to Bismuth, i would definitely stay away from that. I have heard Talc can, and Zinc Oxide i think i have never heard that. Actually Zinc is a really good ingredient and can help acne and can protect you from the sun. But i cannot say what you can be allergic to. You would have to experiment for yourself.

I use Everyday Minerals and it has definitely improved my skin. It contains only four ingredients. Check out their ingredient list.
