Pore Clogging Ingredient Checker

Copy and paste your product(s) ingredients lists into our analyzer tool below to find out if it’s acne safe or potentially contains a pore-clogging ingredient. 

Are you struggling with acne-prone skin and tired of dealing with breakouts caused by hidden pore clogging ingredients in skincare products? Remember: “natural” and “organic” do not always mean “acne-safe.” Organic coconut oil will just give you organic pimples. Understanding what’s suitable for internal consumption versus topical application is crucial. Pore clogging ingredients in everyday personal care products can cause acne. If you are prone to acne, you must be cautious of products that you use. It is important to check for pore clogging ingredients before using any personal care products on your face, skin or hair. 

We make it easy for you to check your skin care, makeup and personal care products. After pasting your list below, click “analyze” or “go” on mobile devices and get the results. You can copy and paste whole lists into the analyzers below with commas between each ingredient.

Search for things like: "Lanolin" "Chlorella" "Coconut Butter" "Decyl Oleate" "Isocetyl Stearate" "Kelp" "Lauric Acid" "PEG 16 Lanolin" "PG Monostearate" "Red Algae" "Shea Butter" "Sodium Lauryl Sulfate" "Sulfated Caster Oil" "Wheat Germ Oil"
