Dermacia claims that Lycogel actually increases oxygen to the skin. I find that hard to buy, frankly. On the the other hand, claims that Lycogel is up to 13 times more "transfer resistant" than competitor foundations is more plausible.
For such a hard working foundation, the ingredients are fairly benign. There is a mineral sunscreen. Butylene/ethylene/propylene copolymer isn't as alarming as it looks. It absorbs oil and crops up in products generally aimed at the sensitive of skin. Along with Nylon-12, which absorbs moisture, this complex helps the product stay put. In addition to a number of parabens, the remainder is made up of mostly silicones with some yeast extract.
