there are over 150 comedogenic (pore-clogging and acne-exacerbating) ingredients, many of which are commonly found in skin, body, and hair products — even acne-specific products. this list is based first and foremost on the pioneering research of dr. james e. fulton, but also includes our own research and the research of dr. mark lees.

for people with acneic skin, it is extremely important to ensure that none of your products contain these ingredients. so, if you’re serious about getting clear skin, check your products and throw out all that contain any and all of these ingredients.

ABOUT OUR COMEDOGENIC VETTING PROCESS:

finding acne-safe products is a very painstaking and time consuming process.  about 80% of all body/skincare products on the market are comedogenic in some way, and/or contain fragrances (many of which are comedogenic as well, for more information, read here).  we carefully shop for products with acne-safe ingredient listings, and then test them in-house for at least 6 months on skins that are already clear, and on people who are religiously living the acne-safe lifestyle, so that we can isolate any new breakouts to that one variable – the product he/she is testing.

be aware that industry standard comedogenic testing is usually only for a period of 4-8 weeks, and sometimes only on the upper backs of human test subjects, who may or may not be acne prone, and are likely not living an acne-safe lifestyle.  4-8 weeks is simply not enough time for a product such as makeup or moisturizers to create acne, facial pores congest differently than those on the body, and the lack of an acne-safe lifestyle can throw off the true results of the product being tested.  products that foam, however, like toothpaste, face washes and shampoos, tend to congest the skin almost immediately – within a few days to a week.

anything that we cannot find acne-safe, or products that ARE safe but could be better, we formulate ourselves.  keep an eye out for the launch of new formulations, upgrading several of our best-selling products, by fall 2016.

OUR STANCE ON OILS:

we have found, within our in-house research, that most all oils used topically are comedogenic given enough time, and especially if it is used neat on the skin/hair, or higher up in a formulation’s ingredient listing.  according to dr. fulton’s research, SAFFLOWER, SUNFLOWER & MINERAL OILS are the only oils rated with a super-safe 0.  we shy away from mineral oil because it’s a highly processed and refined petroleum product, and would rather use healthier, non-toxic safflower and sunflower oils.

oil pulling is a new trend, but proceed with caution if using any other oils besides safflower and sunflower; as repeated and constant exposure to other oils may exacerbate acne formation around the mouth, upper lip and chin!

KEY
* okay in diluted concentrations as long as it is not used by itself on the skin. caution: even when mixed within a formulation it may be very mildly clogging to some exceptionally acne-prone skins.  usually it seems that the product is safe for 98% of acne-prone to use but problematic for the other 2%. dimethicone and jojoba oil are the ones we've observed so far to fall under this category of tricky ingredients.
~ depends on formulation — not always problematic
0 – 5 some comedogenicity studies include a rating of how comedogenic each ingredient was found to be. as more data is made available we will be updating the table to reflect their comedogenicity rating. a note: while an ingredient with a lower rating is less likely to clog pores anything with a rating above a 2 should be strictly avoided.  at sS we strive to use only ingredients that are rated 0-1 unless the ingredient is used by dr. fulton himself in his line of vivant skincare products.

Search our database to see if your product includes cloggy ingredients*

* Please note: This comedogenic search tool is a constant work in progress.

1. Click “more info” to expand upon each ingredient’s notes.

2. The columns named “Rabbit Ear 1982″, Common Ingredients 1989”, “2011 list” and “Acne RX” are the names of the medical papers Dr. Fulton wrote, and shows the # ratings he gave each ingredient in that paper. We are in the process of consolidating the number ratings that Dr. Fulton specifically wrote about in his different studies to one column, for easier viewing.

3. For this search box to work, ingredients pasted into the box MUST BE TYPED EXACTLY as they appear in our database. Because of the plethora of ways manufacturers can list ingredients, we recommend double checking each ingredient on your product against the entire list by scrolling down to find it, or using the (command + f) feature to quickly search the list.

4. This is meant to be a guide to find potential cloggers in your products, and for best results we recommend you use only skinSALVATION skincare products or exact makes/models of what we sell – many products that “pass” the comedogenic search box test actually break people out due to undisclosed ingredients. All products sold by sS have either been formulated from the ground up, or tested on acne-safe individuals for at least 3-6 months to be deemed as “safe.”

With all this in mind, use the search box by copying and pasting a comma-separated list of ingredients here:
