Quality of MMU

I found an interesting video on youtube claiming it's possible to evaluate the quality of MMU by dropping some in a glass of water and mixing it through - apparently the good quality MMU will not sink or mix with water. I find this rather doubtful a hypothesis since I like to have scientific reasoning to back everything up.

According to my logic the only thing proven by this is that the powder contains lots of water repelling TiO2 pigment. This means that most mica-based formulae will sink and formulae with more kaolin clay in it, will make the water gray.

I personally do not enjoy very high concentration TiO2 stuff on my skin - it looks mask-like on me.

nii hea, et ma selle blogi leidsin!
olen ise ka heledanahaline ja jumestuskreemid on ALATI olnud minu jaoks täiesti valet tooni. lisaks muidugi kogu see jube keemia, mis neis sisaldub! aga mineraalmeigist olen juba pikemat aega ainult head kuulnud. kuna mul on ka probleemne näonahk (kergem akne ja suured poorid), siis oleks mineraalmeik ideaalne vahend saavutamaks värsket ja puhast jumet.

paraku ei oska aga kuskilt alustada, see mulle täiesti uus ja võõras maailm... siit blogist sain lingi eestis mineraalkosmeetikat müüvale netipoele, huvitav, kas nad mingeid testreid ka pakuvad?

Minerals.Planet? ma arvan, et saadavad ikka. Ma soovitaks esialgu EDMi omi proovida - testrid on purkides ja maksavad vaid postikulu - ca 50 kr. Proovi kindlasti enne suurte koguste ostmist, sest ka MMU komponendid võivad allergiat tekitada. Ja loe hoolega see blogi läbi ;)
Edu,
