Recent climate research indicates that the world is getting hotter, more polluted, and more humid – which could spell trouble for people with oily skin. In fact, even a 1°C increase in temperature can result in a 10% increase in sebum excretion1 – making the skin appear greasier and more prone to acne and breakouts.
Oilier skin types are also more likely to struggle with dehydration and moisture barrier damage as a result of overly stripping the skin in an attempt to avoid looking shiny. In response to this growing consumer need for shine free hydration, Kiehl’s proudly presents the newly improved Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream – expertly formulated for combination and oily skin types.
First launched in 2013, the now alcohol-free formula features the same beloved cooling gel texture with new specialized ingredient technology that works to reduce the appearance of excess sebum on the skin. Fast absorbing for a residue free, fresh-feeling finish, Ultra Facial Oil Free Gel Cream is clinically demonstrated *in a clinical test* to provide long lasting, essential hydration and shine reduction for combination and oily skin types –even in extreme heat, humidity and polluted environments.
Providing an instant cooling sensation upon application, Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream features an innovative blend of ingredients that includes Glacial Glycoprotein, originally derived from sea glaciers, and new Micronized Amino Acid. The uniquely fast-absorbing gel texture deeply hydrates the skin and helps prevent water loss while also reducing the feeling of oiliness by 27%, visible shine by 24% and pore size appearance by 12% in just 14 days. Upon application, the skin is 99% more hydrated and stays shine-free for up to 8 hours.
