Skincare and cosmetics contain comedogenic ingredients (which create acne).

Checking every ingredient in our cosmetics is boring: The majority of cosmetics that cause acne problems come from makeup products with comedogenic ingredients. So, if you only want to avoid comedogenic products, we offer a list of makeup with only natural ingredients that are light and healthy on your face:

If you are ready to invest in an ingredient study, check the table below to find out the comedogenic potential (CP) of each ingredient in your cosmetics.The CP is the "comedogenic potential" of the ingredient, ranging from 0 to 5.

- 5 corresponds to the most comedogenic ingredients, those most likely to cause acne.
- 0 corresponds to the least comedogenic ingredients, those that cause the least amount of acne.

If you have acne or want to avoid it, you should check the ingredients of your creams and makeup.

The following is a list of the main ingredients found in cosmetics.

Compare the ingredients list of your favorite cream or cosmetics, if you see a lot of ingredients with a CP value of 4 or 5, change the product.
