The true cause of oily skin lies in one’s genetic makeup – an excess of a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Too much of a good thing, this metabolite of testosterone, DHT is responsible for triggering sebaceous glands to produce sebum.
While acne-prone skin is usually oily, oily skin is not necessarily prone to acne. Oily skin is the result of excess sebum production, which can be caused by hormonal fluctuations and influenced by genetics. People with oily skin should still use moisturizer, as drying out the skin can signal the oil glands to produce even more sebum.
Our range of products for oily skin is designed to hydrate, moisturize and balance out the excess sebum production.
