Ingredients that can clog your pores in make up

For those people who are prone to acne have to choose cosmetics that are non comedogenic. So the next time when you choose to buy cosmetics, please be sure to look out for all these highly clog pores ingredients:

- Algae Extract
- Red Algae
- Carrageenan
- Sodium Lauryl Sulfate(Found mostly in shampoos)
- Wheat Germ Oil
- Hexadecyl Alcohol
- Isocetyl Stearate
- Isopropyl Isostearate
- Isopropyl lanolate
- Isopropyl Linolate
- Isopropyl Myristate
- Laureth 4
- Myristyl Myristate
- Octyl Stearate
- Oleth-3
- Oleth Acid
- Potassium Chloride
- Lanolin Acid
-Cocoa Butter
- Coconut Butter
- Coconut Oil
- Mica (found mostly in blusher or eyeshadow, high shimmering products have higher mica)

These are some of the information that I found out recently when I was discussing about pores clogging ingredients in make ups with my friends. All of us happened to know that at least half of our products contain pores clogging ingredients. Shocking right? Check out yours as well.. :)

Thanks for sharing! I think all of us should choose products that are free from fragrance and dyes. With proper face care, our skin can be free from breakouts. :)
