It was introduced into the formulas of anti-blemish skincare products due to its ability to reduce the amount of excess sebum while repairing any damage caused by spots and other breakouts. It is also found to be highly effective at protecting the skin from exposure to harmful UV rays and combats any free radicals and other environmental aggressors.
