If a lotion doesn't say that it is non comedogernic (spelling?), does that mean we can assume that it is? The lotion I'm referring to is Lubriderm, and I think it may be the reason for recent breakouts.

that is what I have always thought, but i could be wrong. Seems to make sense that if they could put non-comedogenic on the label they would; more ppl likely to buy it that way.

i think it would be best to check the ingredients themselves. sometimes companies like to put non-comodogenic knowing everyone is looking for something that will not clog our pores

i think that finding the right moisturizer for your face (that won't add to your breakouts) is one of the hardest things.. especially if you have oily skin. I going to agree with ilikeabcs on this one: "I HATE ACNE!!!!"

Anything labeled non-comedogenic must actually be non-comedogenic! Don't bother looking at individual ingredients either, and judging comedogenicity that way. It is very possible to produce a non-comedogenic formulation that in fact contains comedogenic ingredients. Cetaphil would be a good example of this, as would any other non-pore clogging cleanser that has SLS.

Moisturizer, no matter what type, will make you break out if you use too much, or if you have oily skin and use it on a hot, humid day.
