I used to put coco butter on my back and I used to get some big zits from that - but that's just me, perhaps you're different. Perhaps you could just try a little at first, and see if you break out from it?

I haven't heard of shark liver oil, I'm curious how it's works - I have some pink scarring on my cheeks.

Was it expensive??

Cocoa butter is listed as a HUGE pore clogger. Be careful.

would it still clog pores if it is used with jojoba oil since that opens the pores?

If the jojoba opens the pores, I would think that would allow the cocoa butter to penetrate more deeply, thus clogging the pores even more.

I'd stay away, but give it a shot if you really want to..it's the only way to find out for sure.
