There are many treatments on the market that help combat oily skin. However, mother nature provides her own array of powerful ingredients to reduce shine, condition, and balance your skin. Here’s a look at some of the most effective ingredients that are natural solutions to a beautiful, non-greasy complexion.

Achillea Millefolium Extract

With a long list of beneficial properties, this botanical extract is a superstar for treating oily skin. Its refreshing essence is perfect for toning and clarifying skin, while its antibacterial agents fight off microorganisms that contribute to blemishes. This astringent extract, found in the skin toner Maxatone, also helps purify and tighten pores, discouraging the development of whiteheads and blackheads. Some studies have shown Achillea Millefolium Extract can improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles, making it a promising ingredient for reversing signs of aging.

Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil

We all know lavender for its soothing and relaxing effects, but lavender oil is also extremely useful in treating the skin. Its natural properties rejuvenate skin cells, fight bacteria, and reduce swelling. For those with oily skin, however, it hydrates and conditions without leaving a greasy residue.  It’s especially useful in clarifying cleansers like Rejuvoderm because it exfoliates and deep cleans while replenishing moisture both on and beneath the skin’s surface. Skin feels soft and smooth, dry to the touch but not flaky and raw – a perfect balance.

Rosa Rubiginosa (Rose Hip) Seed Oil

Rose Hip oil has gained popularity for use in skincare in recent years. This natural botanical oil works wonders for all skin types, but is highly coveted by those with oily skin due to its ability to achieve a healthy, radiant glow without leaving a greasy residue. By nature, it contains high levels of vitamins A, C, and E, stimulating collagen production and preventing signs of aging. Because it protects against damage, cleansers like Dermpura include Rose Hip oil to repair and nourish the skin, leaving it polished and toned.

Kojic Acid

Kojic acid is actually a by-product of fermentation occurring in foods and plant sources. This all-natural complex is a powerful skin brightener, inhibiting the production of melanin, the pigment that causes skin discoloration. You can find this highly effective agent in exfoliating complexes such as Glowpeel, which renews and resurfaces the skin, leaving it radically transformed and radiant.
