Talc. It’s used in baby powders, so it should be safe for grown-ups, right? Well, a growing list of cases begs to disagree. While no study has given conclusive results, talc is suspected of being responsible for a range of adverse effects. This makes it a bit concerning that it’s used in so much makeup: lipstick, mascara, face powder, blush, eye shadow, foundation and even children’s makeup can contain talc!
Thankfully, we here at Ellana have been making our products talc-free from the very beginning. Our silky-smooth, oil-absorbing powders use kaolin clay and rice powder, as well as healthy actives like vitamin C and vitamin E!
