Comedogenic Ratings
Author: Wholesale Supplies Plus
Tuesday, September 27, 2016

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.

Comedogenic Rating Scale (Meaning Causing Acne)
 
0 - Will Not Clog Pores
1 - Low
2 - Moderately Low
3 - Moderate
4 - Fairly High
5 – Highly Like to Clog Pores
