This setting powder is our mica version; the differences between the mica and talc versions are more about preference than performance; both powders perform very similarly, but the mica version has a very slight sheen.
This setting powder is translucent with zero color added for those with a fair skin tone.
Each setting powder comes in a 50 gram jar that holds about 15 grams of powder.

***Nylon12 is a powder we use to help with the slip.
***Silk Mica is natural and is similar to sericite mica but it's silkier, whiter and offers a soft, smooth texture that is mattifying.
***Magnesium Stearate is a chemical compound of Magnesium (element, same as in vitamins) and Stearate (plant-derived).
***Magnesium Myristate is the combination of Magnesium (a mineral) and Myristate a fatty acid (naturally occurring). Magnesium Myristate will add adhesion, slip, soft feel, and helps to repel water.
***Fractionated Coconut Oil (we use this to bind our Powders) - fraction of coconut oil comprised mainly of Capric and Caprylic Acid, thus giving it more of an antioxidant and disinfecting effect. Factionated Coconut Oil has a long shelf life, stability and rancidity resistant.
***Oxides are natural minerals and add color to the product, also helps with making the product opaque.
