I don't know anything about chemistry, although I would guess that they are on top of their game and know what they are talking about. So I would say its not comedogenic.

The fragrance added could be causing a break out- I know with some other vegan friendly products I have that the fragrance oils irritate my skin.

Other then that, they're a paraben free, typically pretty organic company, so they definitely have safer products.

Check and see if the moisturizer has the organic seal on it. If it doesn't you may want to switch to one that does like Beauty Without Cruelty's line.

Coco-caprylate is coconut oil and rates a 4 out of 5 in terms of being comedogenic on zerozits.com!

I've used moisturisers with this ingredient (Liz Earle Skin Repair Light) and it broke me out... I'm sure it depends on the individual's skin though.

Good luck!
