Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride: Is it comedogenic?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I need some help if you don't mind! I've been searching all over the internet to see whether or not Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride is comedogenic. I've read articles that say it's non-comedogenic and some that say it is. I can't really find an authoritative source. It's in so many lotions and creams that it's frustrating not to know. I tried Cetaphil's lotion. It says it's dermatologist recommended and non-comedogenic but I think it made me break out. I looked up the ingredients and I'm thinking it's this ingredient that is the problem. Can anyone tell me if this is or isn't comedogenic? And if it is, how comedogenic is it?

Thank you!

Its one of those ingredients that clogs some people, but others who are acne prone have no problems with it. I used a moisturizer for years that had this as an ingredient and it worked fine for me.
