A recent study has shown that the humble daffodil, or the narcissus tazetta bulb extract has many benefits for oily, acne-prone skin. IBR-Dormin is a natural aqueous extract from narcissus bulbs in their dormant state that is able to slow cell proliferation.
The study found that the safety and efficacy of this IBR-Dormin on the reduction of oil in skin in a controlled trial performed well.
Sebum levels were measured by a sebumeter. There was a significant reduction in sebumeter readings with baseline from day three until week four with the IBR-Dormin and salicylic acid formulation. The commercial formulation showed significant reduction in sebumeter readings with baseline from day three until week two. The placebo showed a difference only at day three and at no other time.
Throughout the course of the trial, the daffodil performed much better than the placebo leading the study to conclude that the proliferation of sebocytes, the cells that produce sebum, is slowed with IBR-Dormin, with may assist in reducing skin oiliness, shine and improve overall appearance.
Combine a product with salicylic acid and other ingredients that fight acne, IBR-Dormin may decrease acne outbreaks.
Which is why we hold Gatineau Comforting Daffodil Toner in high regard. It’s a stimulating alcohol-free toning lotion designed for drier skin. It helps to increase the sebum production therefore not to be used on skin prone to breakout.
