Oily skin is identified as having over-active sebaceous glands, meaning your skin produces too much oil. Oily skin is often shiny and it may feel dirty at the end of the day. Oil in the skin is naturally occurring and is part of healthy skin structure. However, too much sebum can clog pores and cause breakouts, blackheads and whiteheads. We recommend staying away from products that contain alcohol or that strip oil from the skin. This will only lead to your cells going further into overdrive and producing more sebum. Oily skin can be managed through the use of ingredients such as our trademarked Optisorb Complex™ or Niacinamide. SKIN functional offers a range of products suited for oily skin. To know if a product is suited for you, we have indicated suitable skin types on every individual product page.
