Tarte cosmetics WARNING! Very disappointed :(
This is a major warning to all you tarte cosmetics fans! If you own the following product, I would seriously reconsider continuing to use it. I had discovered tarte`s smooth operator micronized clay finishing powder, and was super excited to try it out on my next Sephora trip. As with any new product I discover on the internet, I ALWAYS do my research before-hand to see if it is really worth my while to buy the product. Thank goodness I did my research on this one. I read the ingredients (it only contains 5!) and when I saw two ingredients that I was unsure of, I Googled them, of course. The fourth ingredient, lysophosphatidic acid, is a known CARCINOGEN. Seriously, type "lysophosphatidic acid" into Google and nearly every website mentions this. This is a major warning especially for women, as LPA can cause and stimulate rapid growth of cancerous ovarian cells.
If you own this product, I suggest returning it if possible, or at least throwing it out.
I am very disappointed in tarte cosmetics for including this ingredient in their product. Tarte is supposed to be one of the front-runners of natural cosmetics these days. Why on earth they would include a carcinogen in their product is beyond me.
*EDIT* If I have any false information here, or if you have anything you would like to add, PLEASE do so!
