Can washing face with coconut water cause acne?

In brief: Probably not

Coconut oil itself could cause acne as it is heavy and occlusive but in coconut water the percentage of oil in the water is probably small enough not to cause problems.
However, it is not advisable to use coconut water for an acne wash as there are other much better cleansers.
