Oily skin and redness do not leave a flawless first impression. Active Concepts developed a product that controls excess sebum and is the answer to this persistent problem. AC Sebum Control Enzyme PF comes from the Gallotannins and Ellagitannins of meadowsweet. Meadowsweet acts as natural astringents to reduce the activity of the sebaceous glands by inhibiting the activity of 5α-reductase. This in turn, limits the amount of sebum secreted due to an astringent effect by the tannins and can help prevent problem skin. AC Sebum Control Enzyme PF regulates sebum production and secretion so that we are not just covering up the problem but providing a solution!

AC Sebum Control Enzyme PF is able to sufficiently inhibit the growth of both Staphylococcus epidermidis and Propionibacterium acnes. AC Sebum Control Enzyme PF is also able to reduce the accumulation of sebum within the pilo-sebaceous channels that assists in the proliferation of skin bacteria and ultimately leads to irritation and acne.
Evalutes 5α-reductase activity in vitro... Read More
AC Sebum Control Enzyme PF inhibits 5-α-reductase at all tested levels and is dose-dependent, as the highest dose level is most effective. 0.075% AC Sebum Control Enzyme PF decreased 5-α-reductase mRNA by 18%; 0.10% AC Sebum Control Enzyme PF decreased 5-α-reductase mRNA by 52%; and 0.15% AC Sebum Control Enzyme PF decreased 5-α-reductase mRNA by 69%.
Evaluates sebum secretions and lipid index on the skin... Read More
AC Sebum Control Enzyme PF decreased the lipid index in 100% of our volunteers and it lowered 73% of volunteers down to normal skin lipid levels. Therefore, AC Sebum Control Enzyme PF has adequate astringent properties and sufficiently lowers sebum secretion down to normal skin levels.
