this list is bullshit

 

green gables put a lot of time and effort into making that list just to try and help other people, would you care to elaborate beyond your mindless insult? i'm assuming you've had a bad experience with one of the listed products, but as green gables clearly says in the beginning of the first post,

 

This is purely informational. I am not making any blanket statements concerning any particular product. Use this post to inform yourself. What you choose to slather on your face is your own business.

Because all of the products she or he has suggested, contradicts his/her bad list, as they contain multiple bad ingredients, for example a few of them contained tocopherol, which they rated a 2. For lots of others too. 

and I know she says below 3, but if anything is comdogenic at all, it ain't good, coming from experience cetyl alcohol, breaks me out like a mofo.

You won't find a product where at LEAST one or two of the ingredients is "comedogenic" by your standards (meaning anything over a zero), with the exception of single ingredient natural oils or waxes. No one's facial chemistry is the same so what will break one person out, might not break another person out. A rating of 2 or less is considered safe so this list is just a guideline of dermatological facts. Doesn't mean it applies to every single individual in the same way. For example, I break out from Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, even though they only hold a 1 and a 0 on the comedogenic scale, so I can't use moisturizers with sunscreens; I have to add sunblock to my moisturizer.

 

It's not cut and dry. Your experience is unfounded.

Thankyou for your post. I have recently discovered the list of comedogenic ingredients. I went through all my current non comedogenic products to discover that my neutrogena fresh foaming cleanser is the ONLY one with not 1ingredient on the list! Unless of course they have written it differently. Very happy with this product so far. Washing only once a day at night before bed. My skin hates anything on it over night so this product cleanses me without over drying and allows natural oils to do their work. Im not overly oily just enough to add shine throughout the day without proper makeup. Now just to find the rest of my skincare products!

What about xanthan gum?  I notice at least one product on the good list which contains this product. According to Wikipedia: 

" Xanthan gum may be derived from a variety of source products that are themselves common allergens, such as corn, wheat, dairy, or soy. As such, persons with known sensitivities or allergies to food products are advised to avoid foods including generic xanthan gum or first determine the source for the xanthan gum before consuming the food."  These mediums are also often GMO- genetically modified. Persons with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity may have a skin reaction to these products. I know I do.

"To be specific, an allergic response may be triggered in people sensitive to the growth medium, usually corn, soy, or wheat. For example, residual wheat gluten has been detected on xanthan gum made using wheat.This may trigger a response in people highly sensitive to gluten. Xanthan gum is a "highly efficient laxative," according to a study that fed 15 g/day for 10 days to 18 normal volunteers.] Some people react to much smaller amounts of xanthan gum with symptoms of intestinal bloating and diarrhea. There are many substitutes for xanthan gum when used for baking such as guar gum and locust bean gum."
