_________Pore Clogging Ingredients_________

The ingredients in your products are
the MOST important aspect of your skin care!

If you are acne prone you must consider the ingredients of products you put on your face as well as other acne prone skin areas.

Fatty acid or lipid ingredients can literally feed your acne and break you out.

Check the back of your product or look on line for the ingredient list. The ingredient at the top is the one there is the most of and the ingredient listed at the bottom is what there is the least of. If a '3' ingredient is towards the bottom of the list it will be less clogging than at the top.

Ingredients are listed with a 0-5 rating with 0 being totally non-clogging and 5 being the most clogging ingredient for skin.

This is also a great list, from James E. Fulton Jr. M.D., Ph.D, my guru!
