Comedogene in skincare and cosmetics

Comedogenes are ingredients that, when used in a skincare, cosmetic or personal care product, tend to clog the skin pores and therefore reduce natural contact of skin and pores with the air. When they do so, they favor development of acne, which is caused by specific bacteria that grow in skin pores, especially in the absence of natural air flow.
