mineral oil or no-mineral oil?
The debate still rages as to the benefits of using mineral oil in cosmetic applications. Mineral oil is derived from petroleum and is commonly used in cosmetics. Some companies say it clogs pores, others say it won't. Becca are firm believers in mineral oil, they claim that it will NOT clog pores or cause irritation.

amazing looking skin
"My search for the "perfect foundation" became a mission that was to prove as elusive as the search for the Holy Grail! It seemed impossible to find products that not only concealed any blemishes, but that also looked natural, felt like no make-up was being worn, and stayed on all day. Finally, after more than 6 years of scientific development, the BECCA range ends that search. Each product is outlined here, so you can find the one that fills your needs exactly. In exactly your colour.
The BECCA philosophy is that of a deliberately "un-made-up" look that focuses on the skin. BECCA is more than just about foundation: it is a range of neutral-coloured products that correct, perfect and enhance the appearance of your skin. Tinted moisturisers, foundations, concealers, blushers, powders, bronzers and shimmers that work independently, or together, to create incredible natural-looking skin for any skin type or colour. Eye creme, eye gloss, mascara and lip gloss complete the naturally modern BECCA look."
