Oily Skin

OILY SKIN - Health and Comfort for Oily Skin

A recent Symrise Cosmetic Ingredients consumer study in 19 countries and with over 2000 interviews per country revealed:


35% of the global population suffer from oily skin.
Male and teenagers are the most affected.
The highest incidence is observed among people aged 15-39.


Surprisingly, when we asked oily skin consumers what is their N#1 concern
"Skin Sensitivity" came first!


According to Symrise’s internal consumer research, roughly 61% of consumers with oily skin reported that their skin is also sensitive.

Based on these findings and our overall expertise in sensitive skin, exposome defense and oil control, Symrise developes avant-garde ingredients to address oily skin issues. A first result is the launch of SymControl® Care.
