Kourtney Kardashian Told Not to Know Minerals Have Chemicals While Promoting Skincare Line
Your skin deserves minerals, not chemicals, tweeted the reality star
Chemistry lesson! Kourtney Kardashian was roasted by fans to learn that minerals are actually chemicals.
The Kardashian star, 43, tweeted Tuesday, August 29, about her lifestyle website Push’s skincare collaboration with AlkaGlam to create “Your skin deserves minerals, not charcoal facial mist.”
“Hurry up, what are minerals made of,” replied one person. Someone else added, “You don’t even know what it means,” with a Google search, “Minerals are made up of chemical elements. A chemical element is a substance that is made up of only one type of atom.”
“Same thing, hun,” read a separate tweet in which another user wrote, “As someone who is currently graduating in chemistry, it doesn’t hurt my brain. I thought we Have left behind ‘all chemicals are bad’ in 2020. Everything is a chemical, accept it.”
However, some people came to the rescue of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum. One user thought that Kourtney was “obviously” talking about “harsh chemicals that are commonly in skin care products,” while someone else suggested the term was simply “marketing.”
Kourtney has often spoken out about her passion for “clean” skincare and even lobbied for Congress in 2018 under the name Clean Beauty. At the time, the University of Arizona graduate testified with the Environmental Working Group at a briefing for Senate staff. Its purpose was to give the Food and Drug Administration more power to regulate ingredients used in cosmetics and personal products.
