Ingredients in make-up powders

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. 

A: If these ingredients have no najis substance, does not prevent the water from going through and are not harmful then it is permissible.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
