Hi guys, this question keeps coming up often. Is salt (sodium chloride) comedogenic? It seems to be marked highly comedogenic in many comedogenic lists on the Internet but not in Skingredients.
Thank you AM for clearing out this doubt… After reading above what i have understood is that sodium chloride is not comedogenic but it might he high on irritant qoutient.. Right ?
I was talking in context of A Derma Foaming Gel which I am using right now… It has sodium chloride so wanted to be sure about it not being comedogenic…
In gratitude !
Would like to share my friend’s experience, this was before she got fed up with home remedies. She read this somewhere online and followed with limited success.
- Clean face
- Add salt to hot water
- Dip cotton ball and keep it on pimple for 3 minutes.
It reduced her whiteheads size for some days. After that it didn’t work. Whereas with me it never worked at all.
I ve tried salt water on my feet, hands, face everywhere.it’s great for bacterial infections.it ll work if you got pimples cos of bacteria. for hormonal pimples, skin irritant pimples etc., it won’t work.
That explains why it didn’t at time Bargavi, I think all my pimples were skin irritant due to comedogenic ingredients. But wait, are there pimples without bacteria too?
There are no pimples without bacteria.it’s just like pus filled pimples can be treated best with BP and under the skin bumps heels with GA or retinoid.in my school days i got pimples due to bacterial infections caused by immense sweating and i was not using cosmetics or topicals.salt water helped me great those times.
