What is comedogenicity and why do we care so much about it?
Comedogenicity is the tendency of an ingredient to clog pores by increasing follicular hyperkeratosis – an increased production of keratin in hair follicles. Individual skin chemistry varies, but over time, a product with a high comedogenicity rating can lead to clogged pores and comedones. Human sebum is naturally comedogenic, so even ingredients that are not typically comedogenic can become so by a person's unique skin enzymes. This is especially problematic in individuals who are affected by eczema, psoriasis, acne, rashes, wounds, etc.
At Sohma Naturals, we are conscientious and careful to use only ingredients that fit most skin types. We have chosen only ingredients with a comedogenicity rating of 2 or less.
Though we cannot guarantee our products to be completely comedogenic free, we are very confident that we manufacture a product that has an incredibly low possibility of producing a reaction or comedones.
