Avoid these pore clogging ingredients

June 8, 2015

You should always check the ingredients of your hair and skin care products. Many products that say the wont clog pores or are non-comedogenic have poreclogging ingredients in them. There is no regulation so companies can claim their products promote clear skin, when  in fact they have pore clogging ingredients in them.


The cream form of RetinA has Isopropyl myristate, which is a pore clogger. Many over the counter acne medications have pore clogging ingredients, as well as some prescription products.


Even if a product is Oil free that doesn't necessarily mean its safe.  

Get in the habit of checking all your products.
