WHAT IS NON-COMEDOGENIC MAKEUP?

MAKEUP THAT DOESN'T CLOG PORES
  • You may have seen the phrase non-comedogenic written on makeup or skincare packaging. You may have had no idea what it meant. You may have searched it online, and ended up here, reading this story. Welcome!

  • SO...WHAT'S NON-COMEDOGENIC MAKEUP?

    The word "comedone" essentially means a clogged pore, aka future pimple. Products marked "non-comedogenic" mean that they are formulated to be non-irritating and not trigger acne. It's important to note that there's no standard criteria to being labeled non-comedogenic however, so know that not everything marked non-comedogenic is created equal.

    If you're very concerned about breakouts and oiliness, look for products that are oil-free as well as non-comedogenic. And while it's foundation and concealer that are most often non-comedogenic, other face makeup, like setting powder and bronzer, can all fall in that pore-friendly category as well!
