Can it clogs pores or be bad for acne prone skin? I thought I read something about this but now I can't find anything about it.

Confused

Ive read a lot on the subject over the past weeks, and while there always seems to be someone breaking out regardless of the common consensus, I think olive oil is quite safe. Coldpressed, that is, EVOO. Most people have success with jojoba (imitates human sebum) and coldpressed almond oil as well.

The problem is, that you can never knoww if someone is breaking out because of the oil, or something else. Most immidiate (sp?) reactions are allergies, breakout due to poreclogging normally takes two-three weeks to appear.

From what I can sum up from al the OCM info Ive read, is that people seem to break out from using a mix of too much castor oil, not using cold pressed oils, or not removing old oil properly. Id recommend an ACV toner as well, if youre going to try it. So far, its worked wonders for me.

I don't think olive oil will clog pores-- I use several different products with olive oil, from eye cream to body lotion. I've never had a problem.

I've used it and have never had a problem with clogged pores from it. Just make sure to wash your face before you go to sleep!!

I buy bottles and bottles of CP EVOO. Before carekate highlighted the need for oils to be CP, it was any old OO for my OCM, but I've had no problem whatsoever.

I should think the oil is pretty safe for any skin type, even if you sleep in it - not if used as OCM, obviously, but when used as a moisturiser, on clean skin (I know because I've done it before).

Thanks for the input. Smile

While I am wondering about the comedogenicity (sp? is this a word?) of olive oil in OCM I am mostly curious about using olive oil in moisturizers or other skin care products that remain on the skin. For instance, Dr H's Bronzing Gel has olive oil in it. I know this particular product is recommended for impure skin so I guess it wouldn't be comedogenic but I just wanted to get feedback from y'all on olive oil in general...

Amnis, years ago when I was a pimply teenager I used to smooth on olive oil on my face at night because it was about the only thing that would moisturise my skin without aggravating the zits. I did try a sample of L'Occitane Olive Radiance Cream recently - it was nice, smelled yummy, but contained mineral oil as well. I did not break out from it, but if I did I would've blamed it on the mineral oil, not the OO.

I haven't tried the DHBG you mentioned, so can't comment on that.
