Oily skin

The common skin problem of having oily skin is caused by increased sebum production. This skin type tends to shine and literally feels a bit greasy. Oily skin is thicker due to the increased sebum secretion and is, therefore, stronger. Because of this, it has the advantage of ageing less quickly, but oily skin does need good skincare and some special attention. We gladly share with you information about the natural, vegan, and cruelty-free products of Comme Ça Skincare that can help with the care for oily skin.

FACE OIL LA PRICKLY PEAR SEED OIL
FOR OILY SKIN? YES!

This is a very precious and organic face oil and is a fantastic moisturizer for oily skin, as it easily sinks into the skin, and doesn’t leave the skin feeling or looking greasy. Although it is often thought that oily skin and oil or oil-based products don’t get along very well, we have written this article about our experience of using face oils on different skin types. In the article, we dive deeper into the effect of using oils on oily skin, too.

 

Linoleic acid, oily skin, and acne

Prickly pear seed oil contains one of the highest concentrations of linoleic acid (>70%): an incredibly nutritious ingredient that does wonders for all skin types. The oil is also supercharged with vitamins to nourish and protect the skin against premature ageing. Whenever someone has oily skin combined with acne, which unfortunately is seen quite regularly, linoleic acid offers calming properties [1] that support both oily skin and acne-prone skin.
