How to Avoid Blocked Pores!

Posted by Bio-First Team on

Skincare products that block the pores can cause blackheads, clogged follicles, and blemishes. Unfortunately so much of what is available does just that.

Here are some of the culprit ingredients to watch out for and avoid where possible:

  • Coconut Oil 
  • Petroleum derivatives
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulphate
  • Palm Oil
  • Cocoa Butter
  • Wheatgerm Oil
  • Lanolin
  • Linseed Oil
  • Isopropyl Palmitate
  • Isopropyl Isostearate
  • Butyl Stearate
  • Myristle Myristate
  • Decyl Oleate
  • Actyl Stearate
  • Actyl Palmitate
  • Isocetyl Stearate
  • Propylene Glycol

And here are the top 10 non-clogging/ non-comedogenic skincare ingredients:

  • Aloe Vera
  • Witch Hazel
  • Glycerin
  • Cetearyl Alcohol
  • Vitamin E
  • Squalene
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Prickly Pear Seed Oil
  • Sea Buckthorn Oil
  • Manuka Oil

Focus on these to keep the skin pores happy, healthy, and doing their job.
