Frequently Asked Questions about Non-acnegenic products
What does non-acnegenic mean?
Non-acnegenic means the product is less likely to clog your pores and cause a breakout. They’re usually free from oils, fragrances and harsh skin-irritants.
What are the skin care benefits of non-acnegenic beauty products?
Non-acnegenic products reduce the build-up of oil on the skin, which is the most common cause of acne. This means there will be fewer breakouts of spots and pimples.
Who should use non-acnegenic beauty products?
If you suffer from acne, you should always look out for non-acnegenic products. They're also great if you have sensitive or oily skin as they keep your face free from inflammation and oil build-up.
Are there any drawbacks to using non-acnegenic beauty products?
None at all. If you’re suffering from a big breakout then be gentle to your skin – use wholesome, non-acnegenic products with no oils and don’t overdo it with the cosmetics.
Is non-acnegenic the same as oil free?
Yes. All non-acnegenic products will be free from oil as oil is the most common cause of acne.
What’s the difference between non-acnegenic and non-comedogenic?
There isn’t much of a difference, to be honest. Non-acnegenic is free from oil and won’t cause breakouts. Non-comedogenic is also free from ingredients that cause blackheads and whiteheads, but it isn’t always oil free. Be sure to check the ingredients of your products beforehand.
