    Kourtney Kardashian Didn't Know Minerals Are Chemicals While Promoting Her Skincare Line, And It's Kind Of Hilarious

    "Your skin deserves minerals, not chemicals."

    Kourtney Kardashian may be all about health and wellness, but it turns out there's one thing she may be a little confused about.

    This week, the reality star launched her first skincare product in collaboration between her lifestyle brand Poosh and startup AlkaGlam.

    Their new Carbon Purifying Facial Mist is said to help "draw out dirt and excess oil as well as pH-balance all skin types while improving the appearance of skin."

    It's created using a mix of minerals including zinc, grey tourmaline, silver, maifan stone, and magnesium as well as kaolin soil and activated carbon.

    That may all sound good, but it turns out Kourt missed the memo on one important thing about the product.

    "Your skin deserves minerals, not chemicals," Kourtney wrote while promoting the product on Twitter.

    Except...minerals ARE chemicals — as minerals are made up of chemical elements.

    Definition of mineral: any of a class of substances occurring in nature, usually comprising inorganic substances of definite chemical composition and usually of definite crystal structure

    And her followers were quick to point that out:

    minerals = chemicals kourtney 😭 https://t.co/QObDIDb1GU

    Despite the criticism, Kourtney hasn't seemed too bothered by the whole thing because she has yet to delete or edit the tweet.

    As of now, Kourtney hasn't issued a response either.
