Potentially shocking, but unlikely

Benzoyl peroxide

After being synthesized early in the 20th century, benzoyl peroxide languished for decades until its activity against P acnes was demonstrated and its formulation in a stable base garnered for it a central role in therapy of inflammatory acne. Currently available in both nonprescription and prescription formulations, benzoyl peroxide provides good efficacy against superficial inflammatory lesions. Compounds may be either comedolytic or comedogenic, depending on the specific formulation, but have rapid bacteriostatic (and possibly bactericidal) action against gram-positive organisms and yeast.

Perhaps they are referring to the "compounds" that are in the product aside from the benzoyl peroxide. That's how I'm reading this. Anyway, yes, bp gel is definitely non-comedogenic. Our manufacturer is the best in the business, and would not use anything other than the best ingredients. As far as the comedogenicy of each ingredient, I would have to ask our chemist, but she is constantly up to date on this kind of information and formulates the best combinations, which is part of the reason they are so expensive, but also why we went with them.
