You Should Use Non-Comedogenic Oils on Your Face


It can be confusing when you are looking for skincare. Especially if you have acne, enlarged pores or wrinkles.  With terms like pH level, acids, ceramides, and non-comedogenic, it’s hard to make an informed decision  You want to find skincare that makes your face look smooth and supple.  If you are prone to getting acne or have acne, have oily or dry skin, an important term to look for is non-comedogenic. Let’s take a quick look at what non-comedogenic means and how to choose the right ingredients. 



Comedogenic vs. Non-Comedogenic


You may have heard the term before, but you are probably wondering exactly what comedogenic means.  Comedogenic means something that clogs pores and tends to encourage blackheads.  This usually comes in the form of oils or butters in your skincare products. 


Non-comedogenic, therefore, are products that don’t clog pores and are safe to use even if you are prone to acne and will not cause excess oil production.


Comedogenics are ranked on a scale to determine how much the ingredient will clog pores:


0 - won’t clog pores

1- very low chance of clogging pores

2- moderately low chance of clogging pores

3- moderate chance of clogging pores

4- fairly high chance of clogging pores

5- high chance of clogging pores
