Some women naturally overproduce sebum (oil) due to genetics, hormones, or overly dry skin. Having excess sebum clogs pores, trapping bacteria and causing an inflammatory reaction - ie. pimples.
Sweating can exacerbate breakouts, because when sweat stays on the skin, this locks in the excess oils.
According to the FRÉ skincare quiz, 53% of FRÉ users report acne and breakouts as a major issue. This makes it the No. 1 skin concern among the active women in our community.
Argan Oil is Rich in Fatty Acids and Antioxidants
One of the reasons that Argan Oil was chosen as the key ingredient in the FRÉ product line is due to its natural acne-fighting properties.
The oil’s high proportion of potent antioxidants and fatty acids makes it a very effective agent for keeping pores clear and combatting any inflammation of the facial skin.
Argan is made up of several fatty acids: Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA), Linoleic and Oleic Acid. All of these help strengthen the skin barrier to lock in moisture and lock out bacteria.
Fatty acids have also been shown to help prevent the overproduction of sebum. In a clinical study conducted by FRÉ’s Botanical Dermatologist Dr. Sharon Rozenblat, 20 volunteers (ages 17-50) with oily facial skin applied topical Argan Oil. The results showed reduced greasiness and improved appearance of the skin.
Argan also contains Tocopherol (vitamin E), which has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to prevent pimples and breakouts.
