Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Virginie! Coconut Oil can be slightly comodogenic. Though, we haven't found this to be a problem in any usage rates we've used. Generally speaking, you would not use our Carrot Extract at 5% or less of your skincare recipe which amounts to very little. Even less in a wash-off product versus leave-on. Carrot Extract is also awesome for hair products as seen in our Sizzling Summer Hair: Argan Oil Shampoo blog post.
