If you’ve ever grappled with acne, this vicious cycle might sound familiar: you want to hide zits with makeup, but the makeup makes you break out even more. Or you buy an “anti-acne” face wash/cream/toner/whatever, and end up with red, dried-out skin, and even more pimples. Try reading the ingredients list on most of these products — you’d need a translator in a lab coat to make sense of it all! And even then, who knows how your skin might react to each unpronounceable ingredient?
That’s where CosDNA.com comes in. We use it to quickly and easily screen every makeup and skincare product we recommend for any pore-clogging (comedogenic) or skin-irritating ingredients. You can, too. It’s super easy. Keep it open in a browser tab on your smartphone while you go shop, so you can check out the ingredients of any product for any red flags.
While CosDNA.com is a super useful tool to make better choices before paying for products your skin might not react well to, it isn’t foolproof. That’s why Curology, founded by a dermatologist with products designed by dermatologists, offers custom skincare — so you can get a formula that’s made to work just for you. Same goes for our new, super-gentle cleanser and moisturizer, made with only ingredients your skin will like — and nothing extra. Both are made to work with your skin’s unique quirks, not against them!
