As part of our Decoding Skin series, we're demystifying common skin concerns and types, and sharing with you the science behind our skincare to explain exactly how our creams work.
For those who suffer with combination to oily skin, the overproduction of oil can be incredibly difficult to control. The Cream is the ultimate relief, packed with antioxidants to help protect the skin from free radical damage and also vitamin A to exfoliate the skin gently, keeping pores unclogged. This light-textured cream is the perfect oily-skin companion.
Under each of your pores is a sebaceous gland that produces natural oils called sebum, keeping your skin hydrated and healthy. This function also regulates skin temperature, provides protection from the sun, and waterproofs for healthy and beautiful skin. But, when the glands overproduce oil, it can cause the pores to become clogged with bacteria, pollution, and dead skin cells, meaning that breakouts become more frequent with the sebum causing blemishes.
Whilst the causes of oily skin include genetic factors, environmental changes, aggressors and lifestyle factors (such as diet or hydration levels), adapting your skincare is the proven way to help it back to its optimal state. Because The Cream helps to gently maintain lipid levels and restore the skin cells to their optimal, healthy function, the sebum production is naturally reduced.

Model Jenn Atilemile who has been using The Cream for 27 days says: “What I noticed the most is hydration, and that my skin didn’t go oily in the heat. It’s been nice to have a light cream on and not have stickiness.”
