Pore Clogging Ingredients List

This is a list of ingredients to avoid in all skincare, makeup, and hair products. Even if products say "won't clog pores" and "non-comedogenic", the FDA doesn't regulate comedogenicity. This means that brands can falsely claim to not be pore clogging. If you're prone to acne check your products before purchasing.
