Q: I want to ask a question about cosmetic ingredients mica and stearate acid which is used in face powders and blusher is it halal to use it? I read that mica is a kind of silicate or silicone which sticks to your hair and will not come out. It is not recommended because you cannot do wudhu.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
