8 Foundations That Actually Work For Acne-Prone Skin
“‘Non-comedogenic’ is a term used to describe a product that will not block pores and promote acne,” says
Joshua Zeichner, MD, director of cosmetic and clinical research at Mount Sinai Hospital. Not to be confused with oil-free products — as most, but not all oil-free products are also non-comedogenic, Dr. Zeichner explains — non-comedogenic translates to being free of pore-clogging ingredients, whereas oil-free applies to products that do not contain
petrolatum, but can still contain alternative oils.
