What is comedogenic?

When dealing with skin care products, you will find many ingredients that can cause or exacerbate acne prone skin. Any such ingredient that will actually "cause" acne is called a Comedogenic. Those of us who deal daily with acne-prone skin will want to stay far, far away from any ingredient that falls into this category. For your convenience we have compiled a list of many common ingredients including comedogenic oils that may be in your skin care right now! Go over your ingredient list and see if you are using anything that may be adding to your problems.

0's and 1's are the best. 

2's are ok in small amounts. 

3's and above be cautious.
