The right oil can hydrate, cleanse, and leave your face glowing.
Unfortunately, your favourite oil could be sabotaging your skin by trapping dirt inside your pores.
These non comedogenic oils are the perfect solution. You just need to choose the right one for your skin type or most annoying ailment – luckily, we’ve got you covered.

People tend to associate oils with oily skin. But the truth is applying the right kind of oil can balance your skin’s natural oils – especially when used with other potent essential oils.
Noncomedogenic oils allow your skin to breathe. Comedogenic oils, on the other hand, encourage the growth of comedones (blackheads, whiteheads, and annoying bumps) because they seal pores shut.
Oils are rated on a scale of 0 to 5 based on how likely they are to clog your pores. Anything scoring 0 to 3 is likely safe to use without suffering a breakout. Oils with a ranking of 4 or 5 should be avoided. Everyone’s favourite oil, coconut, scores a 4 on the comedogenic chart – yikes.
Plant oils can function on several levels to help cleanse pores, lock in moisture, support healthy sebum production, promote wound healing, and form a protective barrier against the elements. Many oils contain antioxidants like vitamin E to reduce free radical damage and rid your skin of toxins.
Every oil on this list can serve multiple purposes. Jojoba, for instance, is also a great choice for dry or aging skin because it penetrates deep below the surface to lock in moisture.
Don’t forget to add pure essential oils to your carrier oil to support your skin. These are some of the best choices:
Now you just need to try a few different noncomedogenic oils and see which one your skin likes best!
