This is what Skingredients instantly found out about the suitability of Lakme CC Cream for acne prone skin.

Found 5 acne causing ingredients

Butylene Glycol is mildly comedogenic
Dimethicone is mildly comedogenic
Palmitic Acid is comedogenic
Stearic Acid is comedogenic
Zinc Oxide is mildly comedogenic

What it means:

It means that the product contains a couple highly comedogenic ingredients stearic acid and palmitic acid. It also contains some mildly comedogenic ingredients.

A mildly comedogenic ingredient means that it is not likely to clog pores or cause pimples unless your skin breaks out very easily. It is most likely safe for APST 1 or APST 2 but maybe not for APST 3.

A highly comedogenic ingredient means that it is very likely to cause pimples even on skin that does not break out easily. If you use a product containing a highly comedogenic ingredient, you will most likely get pimples.

Bottom line:

Lakme CC Complexion Care Cream is unsafe for acne prone skin. You may not see pimples the very next day, but this product can keep building up into the pores, so you could slowly start seeing more and more pimples with regular use.

Now what are you waiting for? Head over to the  Skingredients Online tool and test if your next purchase of skin care or makeup could break you out.
