Out of the supplements that I take (all generic store brand stuff) , the inactive ingredients are:

Gelatin, calcium stearate, cellulose, stearic acid, magnesium stearate, and
silicon dioxide.

Can anyone of these ingredients in any way make acne worse?

Thanks.

Unlikely, in particular Silicon dioxide is commonly known as 'sand' :-)

Cellulose isn't absorbed, I'm not sure whether magnesium or calcium stearate is absorbed, but if so, it probably helps you build your bones up.

Gelatin, is the non sugar part of 'jelly' (jello to 'merkins). *Really* doubt that that's a problem; but I'm unaware of any evidence either way.

Wouldn't recommend you inhale it, there's a disease called silicosis caused by inhalation of silicon dioxide, that can be fatal. The MSDS on sand is a sight to behold- nobody should be allowed on a beach without full respiration apparatus apparently. (Seriously, that's what it says).

Those should be fine. No gluten, dairy, nuts, etc - none of the common triggers.
