If you have acne-prone skin, don’t ever put anything on your skin or hair without checking it for comdedogenic, or pore-clogging ingredients (the ingredients that clog your pores)! Remember even if it says “noncomedogenic”, “oil free” or “won’t clog your pores” on the bottle that doesn’t mean it’s safe to use on your skin. No government agency oversees this, so skincare companies can claim their products promote clear skin and still have pore-cloggers in their products. Always check the products ingredient list before using any products on your face or in your hair.

We made it very easy for you to check pore-clogging ingredients in your SKIN, HAIR and MAKEUP products. To do this, you should google the full name of your product and add 'ingredients' at the end. For example: "Neutrogena Deep Clean Cream Cleanser ingredients." Copy the ingredients deck and insert it in the field below. Hit 'Check' and get the results.
