  1. Is your Women’s Daily and Protect skincare comedogenic?

Comedogenic skincare refers to skincare that is likely to clog pores and potentially lead to acne. When an oil is applied to skin, it doesn’t rush into a pore and clog it, and this does not differ by the type of oil used. A pore gets clogged when it gets infected or when the sebum gets contaminated with dead skin etc. The best way to avoid pore clogging is to have a healthy skincare routine and diet. So in short, our range is non-comedogenic and a healthy skincare routine and diet will help with blemish-prone skin!
