    My points are 1) the comedogenic studies were carried on rabbits’ ears. Skin on rabbit’s ears is quite different from human skin, so professionals argue whether commedogenic scales are even accurate. 2) there’s no legit study that proves that coconut oil has anti-acne effect (feel free to prove me wrong). Not everything written online is accurate. Analize LOIs of popular commercial products for face. You won’t see coconut oil there.

    More and more research suggests that acne is a bacterial infection disease
    and that bateria feeds on fatty acids (which oils have)

    Cutibacterium acnes

    This bacterium is largely commensal and part of the skin flora present on most healthy adult humans’ skin.[8] It is usually just barely detectable on the skin of healthy preadolescents. It lives primarily on, among other things, fatty acids in sebum secreted by sebaceous glands in the follicles. It may also be found throughout the gastrointestinal tract.

    @nara, coconut oil is not good for facial. It may clog the pores and can create acne. You may substitute it with babassu oil. Both has similar fatty acids. There are a lot of marketing hype

    If you want the antibacterial benefits, do not use coconut oil, use lauricidin. It’s easy to use, just treat it like you would cetyl alcohol.
