Comedogenic Ratings

When an oil clogs the pores and possibly causes acne it is deemed to be "comedogenic".  Since natural oils are commonly used to formulate face and body products we thought a list of comedogenic ratings would be helpful for you!

These ratings are based on data from Journal of American Academy of Dermatology.  You can use them to develop your product's marketing materials.
