Non Comedogenic Effect
Non-comedogenicity refers to the ability of a cosmetic product to not cause comedones, which are the blocked hair follicles that lead to the formation of acne.
Non-comedogenic testing is an essential procedure to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of cosmetic products in preventing acne formation.
This test is conducted by a dermatologist who counts retentional and inflammatory lesions on the face of test subjects after they have used the product for a certain period of time.
The test provides a quantitative assessment of the product's ability to avoid the formation of comedones and reduce acne, helping cosmetic companies develop safer and more effective cosmetic products. By ensuring that a cosmetic product is non-comedogenic, manufacturer can give consumers confidence that the product is safe and will not cause acne or other skin problems.
