What is 'Non-Comodegenic' & Why It Is Important

What is non-comedogenic skincare?

Non-comedogenic simply means that the products don’t contain ingredients that have the potential of clogging pores, which later leads to skin breakouts, blemishes and spots.

If you have oily skin, still in your 20s and 30s, sensitive skin, wear a lot of make-up or suffer from acne and blemishes, it's definitely worth considering. Typically, acne-prone skin is more affected because the sebaceous glands in the skin are already producing more oils than other skin types. Adding comedogenic make-up and skincare will overload the skin and block pores and breakouts.

Why is non-comedogenic so important?

By making sure your skincare is not clogging up pores, you’re giving yourself the best chance of making sure your skin will look and feel good, plus it's a promising step towards smoother skin.

What skincare ingredients should be avoided?

The common red flags ingredients to avoid putting on your FACE are coconut oil, alcohol, Isopropyl Myristate, Isocetyl Stearate, Isopropyl Palmitate, mink oil, Laureth 4.

Is non-comedogenic the same as oil-free?

This isn't true. In fact, some oils are non-comedogenic like sacha inchi oil, argan oil, turmeric seed oil, ginger oil, castor oil, and rosehip seed oil. As long as an oil doesn’t clog pores, it’s considered non-comedogenic.

Reasons why non-comedogenic is better for your skin

  1. Non-comedogenic ingredients help smoothen the skin. It does the opposite side of clogging pores which often means rough, uneven skin that doesn’t take moisturiser or make-up well
  2. It helps restore skin’s natural glow as well as getting rid of dullness.
  3. The ingredients actually help reduce the signs of ageing. Fine lines and wrinkles look more defined when the skin is clogged.
  4. It helps maintain an even skin texture. Different skin areas of the face are more prone to clogged pores than others. For the example, nose area which can easily clogged than forehead.
