However strange it may seem, attempting to
remove extra grease will only make hair even greasier. Hypertrophic sebaceous glands are actually very sensitive to drying agents and tend to respond with even greater sebum production. The first action of treatment must therefore be a calming agent, to sedate the sebaceous and sweat glands. For this, we have
included bay laurel and sweet orange extracts for their soothing properties on the sebaceous and sweat glands. Direct skin-purifying action is then carried out by extracts from rosemary and pine, the last of which also acts as a balm for the glands and has antiseptic properties. Harsh astringent treatments or aggressive
cleaning may appear to improve the situation at first, but often prove to be detrimental in the long term and should thus be avoided.
