Frequently Asked Questions #14

Q. Are The Organic Make-up Company's organic foundations, concealers and face powders non-comedogenic?
A. As a general rule ingredients such as plant oils and waxes (with the exception of olive oil are non-comedogenic.) The main implications in pore clogging are petroleum-derived ingredients such as mineral oil or paraffin wax. Our foundation, face powder and concealer do not contain any ingredients that will block pores, but to help overall with keeping pores clean we recommend using our exfoliant cleanser once (no more than twice) per week. Once you remove petro-based ingredients from your entire skin care regime you will find a marked improvement in comedones and breakouts.
