Rating of Non Comedogenic Oil For Oily Skin.

Having an oily skin can lead to skin disease like acne, pimples, or eczema. People with oily skin produces an excess amount of sebum that is needed by the skin this in turns leads to the blocking and clogging of skin pores.

Using essential oil on the oily skin can be used to unblock the skin pores but the problem these essential oils can also block the skin pores leading to another skin disease that you are trying to treat. This is why most people avoid using an essential oil on their skin but what they don’t know is that not all essential oil cause this problem. I have seen problem refusing to use face moisturizer on the face because they have oily skin.

Face moisturizer is not the problem as it helps to keep the skin well hydrated and radiant. A well-hydrated skin reduces the amount of sebum produces by the sebaceous gland, so if you have oily skin, always use face moisturizer on your face regularly.

Comedogenic rating is a scale from 0 – 5 that shows how much an oil can clog and blocked the skin pores and cause further damage to your skin.
