Shampoos that are unsafe for the acne-prone

Not only do you need to watch out for pore-clogging ingredients in your skin care when you are acne-prone, you need to also watch what you use on your hair.  There are tons of hair products out there that contain sodium laureth sulfate or sodium lauryl sulfate both of which are high on the comedogenic (pore-clogging) scale.  When I did a search for “shampoo” on the first page of Amazon, almost all of the shampoos listed had pore-cloggers in them.  I have made the offending ingredient bold in each list of ingredients.  And this is just a partial list – my aim is to point out how many shampoos contain these ingredients – make sure you check ingredients against our List of Pore Cloggers before investing in it.
