The List Of Comedogenic And Non Comedogenic Oils

To be considered a non-comedogenic oil, an oil must be rated 2 or lower.

If you use an oil with a high comedogenic rating (3-5) on your oily skin, your pores will become blocked with excess oils leading to breakouts.

A lot of these oils are great to use for the Oil Cleansing Method (OCM).
