Once And For All, What Does Non-Comedogenic Mean?

I’m sure you’ve seen the phrase “non-comedogenic” on various beauty products you own. It’s obviously something important if cosmetic companies make it a point to put it on their packaging. What does it all mean?!

The official definition non-comedogenic is “denoting a skin-care product or cosmetic that is specially formulated so as not to cause blocked pores.” If you break the word down, comedones are a type of pimple/lesion. Open comedones are blackheads and closed comedones are whiteheads.

Non-comedogenic beauty products are specifically designed to help prevent acne formation. The ingredients these products contain are not known to clog pores, therefore, will decrease the chances of pimples. Obviously, that doesn’t mean non-comedogenic products will completely keep acne from forming. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, non-comedogenic products are definitely a better option for you.

One of the most popular non-comedogenic facial moisturizers is CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion ($9.99). Get it below!
