Bare Escentuals has earned notoriety for its Bare Minerals line, a series of cosmetics using finely milled cosmetic-grade minerals as its main ingredients. The manufacturers emphasize that their formulations do not contain the fillers or quantities of chemicals in other types of cosmetics, making Bare Escentuals products more accessible to people with damaged skin, though some people with sensitive skin note that the Bare Escentuals line is not hypoallergenic.
