Why It Works
Curcumin, a chemical compound found in turmeric possesses antioxidant antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties excellent for oily skin. Often touted as “the emollient of the royals”, evening Primrose oil contains fatty acids (linoleic acid) that helps reduce the thickness of natural sebum, which keeps pores clear and unclogged and reduces breakouts while retaining skin moisture (gamma-linolenic acid). Rosehip oil contains fatty acids (Linoleic Acid, Linolenic Acid, Oleic Acid, Palmitic Acid, and Stearic Acid) that hydrates skin and reduce inflammation.
