Abstract

Oily skin affects about 35 percent of people worldwide. However, solutions for this condition are often ineffective for many consumers because skin has a different composition of oil and lipids depending on ethnicity. This shows the urgent need for personal care products that are suitable for the requirements of all skin types – and a clinical study on people with African
skin has now confirmed that BASF’s plant-based active ingredient Bix’Activ® [1] is a truly multiethnic solution for oily skin.
