We'll Help You Find the Certified Organic Skincare that's Right for your Oily or Combination Skin
We know that skin that tends to be oily can become difficult to manage, particularly because this skin type is more prone to acne. It is now understood that the excess sebum produced by oily skin is often deficient in an important fatty acid known as linoleic acid. Studies have shown that applying linoleic acid to oily skin can help to normalise sebum, relieving excessive oiliness as well as symptoms of acne. We have formulated our skin care products to deliver good levels of this important fatty acid.
At the same time, oily skin types should aim to keep the skin clear of cell debris and excess sebum that can block the skin’s pores. We believe that cleansing of oily skin is best achieved without the use of detergents, which can strip important oils from the skin, further increase production of sebum, and damage the skin’s barrier making it more prone to acne. We have developed products that we consider will best take care of your oily skin.
Our Two Cleansers Are Extremely Valuable for Oily Skin
Our Makeup Remover & Cleansing Oil is rich in linoleic acid, and is formulated with oils that will cleanse the skin’s pores, helping dislodge stubborn blackheads. It also delivers valuable nutrients including high levels of beta-carotene, or pro-vitamin A. You can learn more about how to use this product here. It can be used alone, or you can follow with our Facial Cleanser, Exfoliator & Mask This product gently removes excess cellular debris, while delivering valuable water-soluble nutrients including antioxidants, vitamins and anti-inflammatory molecules.
An important part of caring for acne-prone skin is to keep inflammation at bay. Our Pure Hydrosol Toner is formulated with certified organic hydrosols of Damask Rose and Lemon Balm, both of which are known for their calming and anti-inflammatory benefits.
Choosing the Right Moisturiser for Oily Skin
Oily and combination skin generally needs the lightest coverage that is also rich in linoleic acid. For this, we recommend Elderberry & Chia Seed Beauty Serum. As years go by, oily skin tends to produce less oil, which means a more protective moisturiser is needed, with a move to Raspberry & Pomegranate Beauty Serum or even to one of our heavier creams, for example, Light Face Cream.
Skin Care Products for Body
For oily and combination skin, we recommend our lightest moisturiser for body - Sesame & Frankincense Body Oil. This has a delightful fragrance and will sink rapidly into the skin, leaving it feeling beautifully soft.
