They're best for sensitive and acne-prone skin.

Makeup doesn’t always last, especially under the hot, humid air of a tropical country. It isn’t uncalled for when we overload on powder to maintain a fresh look, but if you’ve noticed some irritation or increased acne, then the talc ingredient might just be the culprit. One quick solution? Make the switch to a talc-free product instead.

What is Talc? 

Talc is used in paints, textiles, drugs, and face powders, where it’s usually the common main ingredient. It’s responsible for its moisture-absorbing properties that help your skin look sweat and grease-free, making it a staple for setting and blotting your face. It sits fine on most skin types, but if you have sensitive or acne-prone skin, talc can cause your skin further irritation. Another drawback of talc is that it can cause respiratory problems and lung disease when inhaled. 

For a safer alternative to talc, look for ingredients such as mica, silica, and boron nitrade, just to name a few. They provide the same moisture-absorbing properties with a bonus of light-reflecting particles that can boost your skin’s appearance with a healthy glow. Let this list help you out as you choose your next talc-free powder. Just scroll away!

7 Talc-Free Face Powders That Are Perfect for Sensitive Skin

1. Clocheflame Dream Filter Weightless Soft-Focus Pressed Setting Powder

Banana powder is known to instantly brighten the face to achieve a lifting effect, but it can appear slightly unnatural on morena skin with its vivid hue. We suggest that you switch to Clocheflame’s powder in silk which hosts a slightly opaque banana shade that will lay divine against your skin tone.
