Benefit does not test for or claim that our products are hypo-allergenic (least likely to cause an allergic reaction) or non-comedogenic (does not cause pimples & blackheads). If you have a specific allergy, please bring the ingredient listing (can be found on the product page) to your doctor to determine if a product is suitable for your skin. xoxo B
