I checked out Pur Minerals, they citnaon Bismuth. I found a makeup called Real Purity Healthy Glow Creme Foundation, it only citnaons: Distilled Water, Glycerin, Clay, Rice Bran Oil and Iron Oxides. It's bismuth-free, titanium dioxide free, zinc oxide free, and mica free. I ordered a sample size should receive it sometime next week. Fingers crossed. If I still have problems then we know that either I'm allergic to iron oxides (which is in all mineral makeup) or it is actually my hormones.
