Look Out Clinical Proven Ingredients on Oil Control
For those with an Oily or Slightly Oily Skin Type, your skincare routine should include an oil-control product in addition to or instead of toners.
Look out for ingredients that are clinically proven to control skin’s oil production such as Red Clover Flower Extracts or Lemon Myrtle Extracts that aid in oil rebalancing/ control, as their efficacies are supported with clinical studies.
Layering with The Right Oil Control Booster
You are able to find BOTH Red Clover Flower Extract AND Lemon Myrtle Extract in our NO.2 Pore Minimizing Booster.
With the sole purpose of controlling oil in skin, NO.2 Pore Minimizing Booster effectively minimizes enlarged pores and reduce oil sebum.
Our Miniporyl™ derived from Lemon Myrtle Extract, decreases sebum rate by 17% and reduces the appearance of pore size for a refined and perfect skin in only 15 days.
When coupled with OiLESS’city™ derived from Red Clover Flower Extract, it also acts as a sebum regulator which helps enhance your skin for a flawless, poreless look.

With a satisfaction of 80%, our consumers agree that skin feels less greasy and more balanced after only 2 weeks of use.
If you are working in a fast-paced or stressful environment include NO.7 Skin Protection Booster in your daily routine as it aids in improving dull and tired skin.
This is because stress and external pressure often corrupts your skin metabolism which might contribute to some of your skin concerns. Exo-P, found in our NO.7 Skin Protection Booster increases the oxidation of sebum, which reduces pimple formation which often leads to acne.
Ingredient Harmony for Oily Skin Types
Aside from looking out for key ingredients, there are also ‘troublesome’ ingredients which can cause an unwanted reaction on your delicate skin.
Any savvy consumer needs to know this.
Ingredients such as Benzoyl Peroxide, Retinoids, Hydroxy acids, Hydroquinone, Vitamin C and Peptides can react negatively if not properly layered with the correct skincare knowledge.
For example, layering acids with a retinol product can potentially irritate your skin and cause adverse reactions.
Therefore, please take caution on what oil control and acne products you use when you also treat dark spots. Treating acne together with treatment for brown spots is not recommended, as the tyrosinase inhibitor efficacy is affected by oxidizing agents (e.g. benzoyl peroxide for acne)
The pH of Your Skin Affects The Efficacy of Your Oil Controlling Skincare
There is scientific evidence behind the importance of skin pH
Our skin pH varies in the acidic range spectrum.
Understanding the acidity of your skin’s pH plays a crucial role in your skincare routine.
You need to choose skincare products that can play a major role in not only their effectiveness in controlling your oil production but also how well they interact with your skin.
Our snowperk Pore Minimising Booster is formulated at a pH of around 5.7 – 7 which is close to skin’s natural pH. Plus all formulations are free of added fragrance, making it safe and effective for all skin types.
Even the sensitive ones.
It is recommended to layer together with our snowperk Balancing Moisturiser Gel-Cream. Formulated with a pH of 5.4 – 6.6, the gentle pH levels makes it compatible with snowperk Pore Minimising Booster. This good compatibility ensures the best result when you personalise your snowperk experience.

Skin Health is the absence of the 4 main barriers to healthy skin which are:
- Disordered pigmentation and
- Inactive fibroblast and keratinocytes.
The definition of skin health is the same across all skin barriers. A validated questionnaire determines which of these barriers to skin health are present and assigns a snowperk iD Skin type. The 3min questionnaire has been scientifically validated.
