Along with shininess, imperfections are a main concern faced by people with oily or combination skin. In response to this market need, BB creams were developed, combining multiple benefits in one product.
Lipotec performed a new study based on the application of a BB cream containing 2% MATMARINE™ blue ingredient. Caucasian female volunteers with combination skin used the active cream on one side of the face and a placebo on the other. At the initial time of the study, immediately after the application, a 28.3% gloss reduction was observed, and the mattifying effect lasted all day.
