i know this is a shity answer

Non-comedogenic cosmetics are skin care products which have been tested on the oily skins of human volunteers, or inside rabbit ears. These products are less likely to cause blackheads (open comedones) or whiteheads (closed comedones) in patients.

However, no single product is non-comedogenic for everyone.

For example, a person with very oily skin may still get "skin breakouts" from products that another person with mildly oily skin may find non-comedogenic. A better term may be non-acnegenic rather than non-comedogenic, but this is not so widely used.

It is important to test a new product on your own skin rather than rely on the label, before using it freely.
