    • Q: hi,
      what does it mean when it says +/- titanium dioxide? does it contain it, or is it because it is made in a fabric that also makes products that does contain titanium dioxide?
    • A: Hi Sanne,

      We do use titanium dioxide in our powder products. The (+/-) means than more or less of the pigments that make up the colors of the product have been used to create the product. That ingredient offers opaqueness for wearable coverage. Thank You!
