Oil to treat acne – is that possible?

Oily skin happens when the sebaceous glands produce too much sebum, giving the face a shiny appearance. Pores are usually larger, and as sebum builds up, the pores become clogged, leading to blemishes, spots and blackheads.

Formulas with botanical oils offer a natural way to get oily skin back to good health, even if it’s oily! Made with essential oils with disinfecting, purifying and rebalancing properties, oily serums can effectively treat oily skin prone to acne.  
It’s perfectly understandable to be a little apprehensive about using oily products on skin that’s already oily. But there’s no need for concern, as oils won’t stimulate sebum production when they contain the right, targeted active ingredients!  

Phyt’s have developed a complete range formulated to meet the specific needs of young or mature acne-prone oily skin: Aromaclear. The range assists in effectively removing excess sebum, regulating sebum production, eliminating blemishes, and purifying and mattifying young or mature skin texture.

In this range, the Purifying Serum is the key product to fight the problems associated with too much sebum: enlarged pores, blackheads, breakouts, acne…
Serum Purifiant (purifying serum) is a potent essential oils concentrate that helps purify and rebalance the skin. It also works at reducing blemishes and tightening pores.

The formulation has a base of moisturising vegetable oils chosen for their affinity with oily skin and to help keep the skin moisturised – because hydration is important, even for oily skin! These oils are moisturising because they create a barrier on top of the skin that helps keep water in the tissues.

Oils also work as carriers to the blend of essential oils contained in the treatment serum. These oils have been selected for their potency in purifying and rebalancing the skin (Thyme, Camphor, Cypress, Lemon, Clove) and also for their regenerating power (Rosemary, Lavender).
Serum Purifiant is a treatment serum best used at night, on its own.

Aromaclear range also includes a cleanser,  2 moisturisers and a mask. The moisturisers are perfect for the day; they penetrate easily into the skin, leaving it purified and moisturised – and with a matt finish!
