Help with Comedogenic Ingredients

6 posts in this topic

Hey everyone, just looking for a good, clean, gentle scrub. This one is called the "Rice Bran Polisher" made by the BEST nutritional company USANA Health Sciences. Their whole line of vitamins and skin care is the best in the world (literally). I was thinking about getting a scrub from them - a gentle exfollient. Can anyone with prior knowledge let me know if you see any comedogenic ingredients here? i've tried to look for a list but it's problematic so I was hoping someone with a running list in their head or something could take a peak and let me know. Hope to hear soon.

The following two links are to websites that list comedogenic ingredients. You can research the ingredients in your product(s) and determine if any might be problematic. The second link is to a PDF so if your computer is old or cranky, your computer might freeze.

Thank you very much. I checked and the ingredients on the list seemed really good! It's an exfollient so there were a few discrepencies on irritation but not pore clogging.

Does anyone have any information on the natural extracts? They weren't on the list. For instance, Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Echinacea Angustifolia Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Quillaja Saponaria Bark Extract, Yucca Schidigera Extract etc. were not on the list. I doubt they would clog pores but I thought maybe someone had an idea about it.

Thanks again,

In general comedogenicty doesn't matter as much with washes/scrubs, as they are only on the skin for a short time. The ingredients listed above are fine, I can't find anything to suggest that they are comedogenic. From the ingredients list it sounds to be quite moisturising, so all should be fine :D

Great. Thanks! I see in your information you've been on accutane? Well I have been since January. AWFUL IB and continued to breakout very bad for about 2 months. 6 months later I could not be happier. You'll be shocked with the results. Hang in there and be very careful in the sun!

Again, thanks for the information. This is a great product I've found!

Thanks :) I'm coming up to day 40, and still breaking out, but not as much.
