What is non-comedogenic make-up

Non-comedogenic make up; you have probably heard of it in combination with impure skin, such as acne, pimples and blackheads. Acne is the most common skin problem and has several causes. One of these is the use of certain cosmetics. But what exactly does non-comedogenic make-up mean? And what should you pay attention to when buying skin-friendly make up?

What does non-comedogenic mean?

Comedogenic substances tend to clog sebaceous glands, causing or exacerbating acne. The effect of cosmetics that causes skin problems is also called 'acneic'. A scientific study was published in 1972, which showed that about half of the make up was agnegenic (Kligman AM, Mills OH, 1972). This research resulted in a list of ingredients that are comedogenic. People with acne-prone skin were advised to avoid these substances, and many skin care products were labeled as 'non-comedogenic'.

Non-comedogenic make-up: no guarantee for acne-free skin

Pay attention; the 'non-comedogenic' claim is not legally protected, which means that manufacturers may say about any product other than it is non-comedogenic. This also applies to claims such as hypoallergenic, PH neutral and dermatologically tested. In addition, other synthetic ingredients, or ingredients such as alcohol, can irritate the skin and cause acne. Because acne skin is by definition sensitive and irritated, it is very important exclusively organic and skin-friendly make-up to use.

Why non-comedogenic and skin-friendly make-up?

The effect of comedogenic substances can take a while. If acne suddenly appears on the skin, you often do not know exactly what caused it. The advice is to avoid comedogenic ingredients in any case. Even better is the use of skin-friendly make-up. Such as, for example mineral makeup, using only natural ingredients and pure minerals. They do not damage the skin, cause irritation and do not clog pores. Beware of misleading packaging that says “enriched with minerals”. These products usually do not contain pure minerals and often synthetic irritants have been added.
