Oily skin is not a problem of teenagers only: 58% of women worldwide between 25 and 34 are concerned. The reason are hyperactive sebaceous glands that produce too much sebum. Clinical signs of skin oiliness include shininess, enlarged pores and imperfections. Bix’Activ, an extract of the Red Lip Tree, helps to decrease sebum production, hyper-keratinization and inhibits the virulence of germs triggering inflammation. Skin is mattified, imperfections are visibly reduced and pores are refined. After four weeks, the skin is visibly clearer.
