3. Non-comedogenic

This term applies when the makers of the product consider it appropriate for those who suffer from acne or oily skin.

Comedo is the medical term for a blocked pore, therefore the non-comodogenic refers to a prevention of breakouts.

However, once again, this word isn’t one that has any sort of federal standardization, meaning that companies are free to throw it on their bottles without a clear explanation for what exactly merits it.3
