While Comora products are made entirely of natural active ingredients, there are some products that just don’t mix with Comora products. Moisturizers full of artificial chemicals and scents will hinder the detoxification properties of the Comora Beauty Bar and there are certain types of makeup that will negatively interact with the Beauty Bar’s ingredients and create skin issues instead of healing them.
Though we haven’t had many reports of this happening, we do want to caution our customers that in a small number of people the mixing of mineral-based makeup with use of the Comora Beauty Bar will create a negative reaction that prohibits detoxification.
Research shows that one of the main ingredients in many mineral makeups is bismuth oxychloride, a chemical that gives mineral makeup its shimmer and adheres well to the skin. When used on its own, many people have reported reactions to mineral makeup because of this ingredient, finding that it irritates the skin and clogs pores.
As we always tell our customers, you never want to use any type of product that will clog the pores on your skin. Whether that’s moisturizer or makeup, it will hinder the detoxification process that the Comora Beauty Bar initiates. But in the case of mineral makeup, we’re learning that its use not only hinders the process, but will actually prohibit it, making the use of the Comora Beauty Bar almost pointless.
If you’ve noticed any kind of reaction similar to this, and have determined that it’s not merely part of the curing crisis, then we encourage you to stop using your mineral makeup immediately. Try washing with your regular cleanser, followed by an application of the Comora Beauty Bar each night for a week and we think you will notice a difference.
