Oily skin and redness do not leave a flawless first impression. Sebum primarily comes from the sebaceous glands, which are in high abundance on the face, chest and shoulders. After sebum is produced, it then migrates to lipid-filled cells and is eventually secreted onto the surface of the statum corneum through the pores. Previous treatments for treating excess sebum typically involved the use of talc to absorb and mask shininess. However, talc can leave a heavy build-up on the skin, merely concealing the problem and causing clogged pores. Impacted by various conditions, the skin and scalp may become red, itchy, oily, dry and flaky. Regular moisturizing, washing and/or conditioning may not fix these problems, but actually make them worse.
FSS Sebum Control Enzyme PF reduces the activity of the sebaceous glands by inhibiting the activity of 5α-reductase. It will limit the amount of sebum secretion due to an astringent effect by its tannins and can prevent acne that is caused by bacterial proliferation. The enzyme 5α-reductase is accountable for the production of the androgen hormone dihydrotestosterone that generates the sebaceous glands’ activation. By inhibiting 5α-reductase, we can considerably reduce the amount of sebum produced. Furthermore an astringent effect is produced by tannins because tannins are able to constrict tissues and contract the pore openings in the skin. Lastly because there is a decline in the accumulation of sebum within the pilo-sebaceous channel. This also leads to less bacterial proliferation which decreases problem skin for a healthier overall appearance.
FSS Sebum Control Enzyme PF comes from the Gallotannins and Ellagitannins of meadowsweet. Meadowsweet acts as natural astringent to reduce the activity of the sebaceous glands by inhibiting the activity of 5α-reducase. This in turn, limits the amount of sebum secreted due to an astringent effect by the tannins and can help prevent problem skin. FSS Sebum Control Enzyme PF regulates sebum production and secretion so that we are not just covering up the problem but providing a solution!
