Dee, thank you so much. The wesbite you listed says it very well . " It moisturize your face ..... leaving greasy......." I am having a hard time to find a facial lotion that does not leave a greasy film on the face. I have normal skin. the base creams mentioned are too " heavy for the face " I want a light moisturizer.... not grease & the least comedogenic ingredients .

Just keep in mind that the same ingredient may have different comedogenicity in different people as well as at different concentrations. The scale can only give you a very general idea but is not very useful to predict comedogenicity of a particular product in a particular person.
