Babassu Oil Comedogenicity
I've been formulating products for personal use for a while and lately I was considering babassu oil for inclusion in an acne cream.
Since babassu oil contains about the same amounts of highly comedogenic lauric and myristic acids that make coconut oil highly comedogenic, and these fatty acids comprise most of the oil, just like with coconut, what is it that makes babassu oil non-comedogenic? If I were to look at the composition of babassu oil and didn't know what I was looking at, 50% lauric acid and 10% myristic acid would look like something to avoid in an acne product.
Also, if babassu oil is indeed non-comedogenic, then if you want to formulate an acne cream and are thinking of using lauric acid to combat p. acnes, wouldn't it make sense to use the non-comedogenic babassu oil at twice the amount you would use the comedogenic pure lauric acid?
