What Causes Oily Skin & Acne?
Oily skin is caused by the overproduction of sebum by your sebaceous glands under the skin’s surface. Sebum is an oily, slightly waxy substance that coats, moisturizes and protects your skin. It also makes your hair healthy and shiny.
However, too much sebum leads to skin problems like acne, blemishes and breakouts. Hormonal imbalances like puberty and pregnancy lead to overproduction of sebum. Also, some people just have oily skin because of their genetics.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne is the most common skin condition in the US, affecting up to 50 million Americans annually. It usually begins in puberty but it can occur at any stage of life.
How Does Silymarin CF Work?
The active compound in Sylimarin CF is called sylibin. It’s derived from the milk thistle plant and is a potent antioxidant that prevents sebum/oil oxidation that leads to breakouts. In fact, it’s oil-free formula is clinically proven to reduce oil oxidation by up to 76%. This daytime antioxidant serum also contains salicylic acid to help minimize pores and refine skin texture.

SILYBUM MARIANUM FRUIT EXTRACT 0.5% – Silymarin has very strong antioxidant properties due to its composition of flavonoids. Independent studies have shown that silymarin and its individual components have broad activity in quenching a variety of radical species.
