METHOD: Each volunteer was asked to apply the product on the entire face, once a day for all the duration of the test, suspending the application of any other topical product in the 7 days prior to the test. Evaluation of the 20 volunteers was done before the test, after 10 days of application and after 30 days of application.

•Clinical evaluation performed by a dermatologist using the Global Acne Grading System.
•Satisfaction questionnaire. After 30 days, each volunteer was asked to answer a self-assessment questionnaire.
The graph shows the average % of variation of cutaneous homogeneity detected after 10 days and after 30 days of treatment.
We can see an increase of 15% of the skin homogeneity after 30 days of application.
The graph shows the % variation of the quantity of cutaneous sebum detected.
