Non-comedogenic Chart

basically means 'won't clog pores'



This chart MAY help when formulating blends that are to be used on the face.

The sources of the info are not listed for a reason, I'm too lazy, but, rumor has it that anyone with half a brain can google much of it for themselves. Ingredients not listed are not listed for a reason-I wasn't satisfied with what I read and it probably didn't easily fit into any one category.

Mileage may vary-as skin varies.

When formulating soaps that are destined for use on your face or other sensitive areas be sure to be aware of what you are adding. You don't need a degree in dermatology or CNA training to make the proper soaps for facial cleansing and moisturizing, but be sure to to do proper research on your ingredients beforehand.
