Description

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat Sebo-Controlling Moisturiser is a moisturising formula designed for oily, blemish-prone skin with a shiny appearance.

Oily skin can lead to congestion of the pores and a constant shiny look. It can be a challenge to find a moisturiser that doesn’t increase oiliness and shine.

This moisturiser is specially formulated to hydrate the skin while helping to remove excess sebum from the surface, reducing shine and imperfections, and tightening the pores to make them less visible.

It contains LHAs (Lipo-hydroxy acid) to exfoliate the surface of the skin, and Sebulyse, which helps to neutralise sebum production. It also contains La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water, which soothes and softens skin. With daily use, its oil-free texture hydrates and mattifies the skin, leaving a healthier, brighter appearance without the shine throughout the day.

It is suitable for use even on sensitive skin, hypoallergenic, and contains no parabens or artificial colours.

Scientific Research

For people with Acne

HelloSkin’s experts have not been able to find any scientific data on the use of La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat Sebo-Regulating Moisturiser in people with acne. However, the product contains salicylic acid which helps prevent pores from getting clogged (1). Salicylic acid has also been reported to reduce sebum production (2), the excess of which is one of the main factors in acne pathogenesis (3).

The glycerin in the product helps moisturise the skin, due to its water-binding capacity (4). It is important to note that this product contains alcohol, which can lead to increased dryness and or skin irritation, particularly for people with sensitive skin.
