yes it is true some people won't react to isopropyl myristate. you can only use it to see if you break out. AND!! those tests that test comedgeity (Sp) and irritation levels used 100% of that product on the skin. so it may not have that great of an effect at lower levels like 1-10% which is usually what it would be in a formulation.

edenfield - I've seen many of those different ratings... and unfortunately, they often don't compare.

At least with the bio oil it's not too expensive to try out. With more expensive products, we need to try and get free samples.

you right, they should only be used as a general guildeline since they dont provide percentages. the only real way to find out is to try it. but i do try to avoid products that are high on the scales

Why not just try it on 1 small area of your face.. see how it goes for a few days.
