Oily skin is a very common problem among skincare users. It occurs when the sebaceous glands in the skin produce too much sebum, and it leads to a shiny or greasy appearance. It can have many root causes such as diet, genetics, stress, hormones, and pollution. Besides oily skin, over-secretion of sebum leads to clogged pores, acne, and irritation, but it also has negative impacts on self-confidence and mood. We supply a line of active ingredients helping to control and regulate the sebum production.
