not sure if there are "Body Shops" in USA… they a UK based company, and are fairly big in SA.
They say they are natural etc etc – but they really aren’t… but that’s not my point right now…
I’ve been looking at their foundation on their website
they have 2 liquid foundations, the one is called:
Aqua (Water) (Solvent/Diluent), Octyl Methoxycinnamate (Sunscreen), Octyl Salicylate (Sunscreen), Cyclomethicone (Emollient), Isopropyl Lanolate (Emollient), Polymethyl Methacrylate (Emollient), Propylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate (Emollient), Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer (Film Former), Dimethicone (Skin Conditioning Agent), Glycerin (Humectant), Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate (Emollient/Skin Conditioner), PEG-20 Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate (Emulsifier), Phenoxyethanol (Preservative), Stearic Acid (Emulsifier), Glyceryl Stearate SE (Emulsifier), Polysorbate 20 (Emulsifier), Mica (Opacifier), Benzyl Alcohol (Preservative), Boron Nitride (Bulking Agent), Tocopheryl Acetate (Antioxidant), Alumina (Bulking Agent), Silica (Absorbent), Panthenol (Skin/Hair Conditioning Agent), Propylparaben (Preservative), Hectorite (Opacifier), Phenyl Methicone (Skin-Conditioning Agent/Emollient), Methylparaben (Preservative), Xanthan Gum (Viscosity Modifier), Sodium Polyacrylate (Film Former/Viscosity Increasing Agent), Ascorbic Acid (Antioxidant), Disodium EDTA (Chelating Agent), Octyl Hydroxystearate (Emollient/Skin Conditioner), Polysilicone-11 (Film Former), Sodium Methylparaben (Preservative), Talc (Absorbent/Bulking Agent), Fucus vesiculosus (Bladderwrack Powder) (Natural Additive), CI 77891 (Colour), CI 77492 (Colour), CI 77491 (Colour), CI 77499 (Colour).
… I’m not very clued about good and bad stuff in makeup etc, but I see it has Talc – which is meant to be bad, right? So, this probabaly wouldn’t be a good foundation?
Their other liquid foundation is called
Ingredients: (were emailed to me coz they not on the site properly http://www.thebodyshop.co.za/productmoredetail.aspx?id=33&pk_ProductCategory_ID=42&pk_Product_ID=247
Aqua, cyclomethlcone, zinc oxide. Octyl methoxycinnamate, propylene glycol dicaprylate/dicaprate, caprylic/capric triglyceride, dextrin palmitate, dimethicone, cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 dimethicone, sclerocarya birrea, isopropyl lanolate, phenoxyethanol, polyethylene, sodium chloride, cera alba, glycerine, boron nitride, ethylene brassylate, tocopheryl acetate, methylparaben, PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil, hectorite, pherryl methicone, xanthan gum, propylparaben, triethoxycaprylysilane, sodium hyaluronate, pyrus malus, butylparaben, ethylparaben, isobutylparaben.

This one doesnt have talc… how does it weigh up otherwise?
I really need to find a foundation locally – I can’t afford to buy these great products only available in USA 🙁
