CONCERN: OILY OR ACNE-PRONE SKIN
Why do you have oily or acne-prone skin? This skin condition actually has a variety of causes, which means it’s influenced by several factors.
In general, oily skin occurs when your sebaceous glands produce excess sebum, producing an imbalance in the skin’s acid mantle. This phenomenon can be triggered by a range of factors, including genetic, hormonal, situational, environmental factors, etc.
Internally, factors such as keratinisation disorders in the pilosebaceous unit, alterations in microbial flora, inflammatory reactions, etc. also play a role.
Externally, this results in shiny patches, uneven texture, large and/or clogged pores, redness and inflammation and imperfections such as spots or comedones.
Therefore, caring for oily or acne-prone skin requires a comprehensive treatment, something that Oily SK is guaranteed to deliver.
Zinc PCA is a skin conditioning agent that acts as a sebum regulator, as it reduces sebaceous hypersecretion and also has antimicrobial and astringent properties. Therefore, it helps control oil production in the sebaceous glands, and also reduces the accumulation of bacteria related to inflammation, itching, the appearance of spots, blackheads and feelings of discomfort. It also helps control acne, has moisturising properties and makes the skin soft and smooth.
Salicylic Acid is an active ingredient that regulates cell keratinisation, providing an exfoliating effect. Its oil solubility allows it to penetrate deeper into the pores, making it more effective in removing dead skin cells from the outer layers of the skin, preventing and unblocking clogged pores. In this way, it treats blackheads and comedones, deeply cleaning and calming them.
Malic Acid is another active ingredient that helps normalise cell keratinisation, speeding up the shedding of the outermost layers of the stratum corneum, enhancing the skin’s radiance, smoothness and firmness. What’s more, it enhances the effects of salicylic acid and regulates the skin’s pH levels.
Propanediol (Seboclear®) is an active ingredient with keratolytic, antioxidant and antibacterial effects that stands out for its ability to reduce inflammation.
Evermat® is a highly effective active ingredient complex combining Enantia chlorantha bark extract and oleanolic acid. It has a sebum-regulating action that reduces sebaceous hypersecretion, shrinking pores and reducing shine and oil production.
Chlorhexidine digluconate is a well-known topical antiseptic that’s very effective in eliminating microbes caused by excess sebum that infect the pores and cause comedones, spots and blackheads. It normalises bacterial flora, preventing the proliferation of harmful microorganisms thanks to its antiseptic and disinfectant effects. This active ingredient works extremely rapidly compared to other antiseptics, and can remain working on the skin for up to 48 hours.
Allantoin is a natural wound-healing treatment that promotes and accelerates skin regeneration. It leaves skin looking smooth, healthy and revitalised.
Due to the multiple factors that lead to oily and/or acne-prone skin, treating and caring for it involves more than just removing excess sebum. In fact, stripping your skin of all its natural oils can do more harm than good, and can actually lead the skin to overcompensate by producing more oils.
That’s why Oily SK is a truly complete line that aims to fully address the needs of oily and acne-prone skin.
The active ingredients used in its formulation have a long history in the dermo-cosmetic field, so their effectiveness has been more than proven. In addition, Oily SK has a 20+ year track record in the skin care industry and is used by dermatologists and aestheticians all over the world.
The varied range of products in the line allow you to build a routine adapted to the specific needs of your oily skin. And if your needs vary, you can always choose different combinations of products that will best suit your skin type.
Thanks to its powerhouse active ingredients such as Zinc PCA, Oily SK works by correcting excessive oil secretion and restoring the skin’s hydrolipidic balance.
