ABOUT THE PRODUCT
7 Potential Fungal Acne Trigger(s) were identified 

We state that these are potential triggers because results will vary from skin to skin and to some extent the concentration of the triggers, some triggers at low concentrations might be more problematic, while at higher concentrations some triggers will actually cause the yeast to starve and die such as Polysorbate 20 (Guillot et al), also if there are any anti-Malassezia ingredients present within the formulation and at the right percentage, this could also work in your favor. Finally, the individual susceptibility and sensitivity of your skin to these "trigger ingredients" will also play a role in the severity and response of any trigger or the lack thereof.

So just because something might be problematic for person "A" that doesn't mean person "B" will have the same experience. Just avoid all potential triggers and you won't need to worry about this.
