Hydrates, controls oil, mattifies and reduces the appearance of pores
Finally, oily skin meets its matte. Developed as the product Ole wishes he had during his own struggle with oily skin, this lightweight, mattifying hydrator gives oily and combination skin types the essential moisture they crave. Oily skin needs hydration, too, to look its healthy best.
This innovative moisturizer is powered by Green Fusion Complex™, a proprietary blend of potent active botanicals—green tea, eucalyptus, algae (kelp) and Irish moss extracts—with natural antiseptic properties. Combined with neem seed oil and powerful alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), it helps keep pores clear and skin matte all day long while maintaining optimal hydration and a healthy balance.

Ole was inspired to dedicate his life to cosmetic chemistry after seeing his own oily “problem” skin transform with proper care. He created this mattifying hydrator to address the common fear that moisturizing already oily skin may cause additional breakouts.
