New Research Says Topically Applied L-Carnitine Effective in Treating Oily Skin

The study, conducted by Beiersdorf AG, Research and Development, Skin Research in Hamburg, Germany, aimed to identify an active substance to reduce sebum production by regulating fat metabolism in a natural way. The results were reported by the National Institute of Health’s MedLine Plus. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22360332
