Isn’t coconut oil supposed to be highly comedogenic?

Virgin coconut oil which is solid and has a high fat content has some adverse press in regards to being comedogenic but also some wonderful press with regards to its effect on skin, especially delicate skins. The word comedogenic could really be applied to just about any oil with a fat / wax content but this is very extreme and not really accurate. However, our cleanser is made from fractionated coconut which means that it only contains the non fatty part of the oil making it lighter than any other vegetable oil available. You can feel this just by touching it. This also makes it easily removable with water which is what it is designed to do and therefore leaving no chance of clogging the pores.
