Stop Making Skincare Mistakes and Treat Oily Skin Naturally
A’kin is here to tackle oil prone skin with its new Oil Control range that will have you saying goodbye to blotting paper forever! The range is packed full of natural ingredients to help purify the skin and counteract the processes that leave your skin with excess shine and oil.
The Oil Control range includes the Clarifying Cleansing Mousse, Intensive Sebum Controller, Shine-Free Facial Moisturiser and Mattifying Day & Night Cream. All products include Bamboo Powder, used for its impressive oil absorption properties, leaving your skin feeling light and mattified.
A’kin’s Oil Control range is designed to help control sebum production that can lead to pimples and redness. A’kin’s Botanical Chemist, Annabelle Personeni, explains how the Oil Control range works and how the natural ingredients found in the range are a much gentler option to the harsh and
abrasive skincare products on the market;
“The skin presents oil glands that produce sebum – the protective oil flowing on the top of the skin that maintains good bacteria and locks in moisture. Factors such as stress, hormones (during puberty & menopause) and diet (excess sugar) can lead to the production of sebum in excess quantities.
This sebum is then exposed to UV and pollution causing it to oxidise, which in turn causes the skins pores enlarge in order to evacuate the excess oil. Bacteria feed on this thick, oxidised sebum, blocking the pore and causing pimples.
The mistake most people make is using harsh skincare regimes that further stresses the skin and oil glands, starting the process all over again. The mild and preventative Oil Control Range works with absorbing bamboo powder to remove the oils without stripping our good
The range fights against the four phenomena responsible for acne formation; excess sebum, sebum oxidisation, microbial growth and inflammation. This gentle skincare routine slows down sebum secretion and the skin becomes less oily and shiny, reducing blemishes and irritations over time.”
A’kin’s Oil Control range is crafted with the purest of natural ingredients to fight bacteria and oil in the most efficient way possible. Bamboo powder is used for optimal absorption. It is 4x more absorbent than rice, and unlike synthetic silicone powder it is fully bio-degradable.
- Flaxseed extract is a potent antioxidant key to preventing sebum break down.
- Australian Tea Tree extract, found only in the Intensive Sebum Controller helps control the bacteria that are present on the skin feeding on the sebum.
- Antioxidants are used to slow down the effect of pollution and help prevent the oxidisation of sebum. To make this happen Vitamin C and Vitamin E work together with the Flaxseed extract by shielding free radicals.
- Soothing extracts such as Schizandra, a five-flavour berry used in Chinese traditional medicine, Orange Flower Water and Sandalwood Seed Oil are used to soothe redness and inflammation so the skin is less stressed.
