How to naturally reduce sebum production?

Post  hairze on Tue Mar 23, 2010 9:55 pm

I'm interested in knowing ways of reducing sebum production through natural supplements. My skin can become shiny and oily in a matter of hours, and my scalp/hair gets VERY oily only 12 hours after I wash it.

Thanks

CausticSymmetry recommended Brewer's Yeast to me for excess oil production Smile

I would also recommend Coenzyme A. It's pricey, but apparently it has worked very well for at least some people Smile

hairze - You can also try this shampoo:

Another yet, which I'm still investigating is blocking the CB2 receptor (not the CB1), which is the endocannabinoid receptor-2, which is responsible for sebum production.

Echinacea may help normalize sebaceous gland function, possibly by modulating the CB2 receptor. This hasn't been proven yet, so it might be worth trying.

You could try using clay... you could take lithium internally. LLLT works. And finally iodine removed all sebum for me

1...- For sebum did you mean using iodine topically or internal?

A probiotic might do it, specifically one containing Lactobacillus paracasei

BUDAPEST, HUNGARY — The oral
probiotic Lactobacillus paracasei achieved
substantial, clinically meaningful reductions
in dandruff in a double-blind, placebo-
controlled randomized trial.
Consumption of the probiotic also resulted
in several secondary benefits, including
reduced scalp erythema, itching,
and greasiness, along with a steady decline
over time in scalp Malassezia yeast
counts
, Dr. Audrey Gueniche reported at
the annual congress of the European Society
for Dermatological Research.
She and her coworkers at L’Oréal in
Clichy, France, had previously shown
that the probiotic speeds recovery of
skin barrier function following controlled
damage induced by tape stripping.
They also demonstrated that L.
paracasei helps regulate skin immune
function.
.

The way to stop sebum production is simple; get dairy products, animal protein, fats and oils out of your diet and load up on fiber and complex carbohydrates. This will stop sebum production (and heart disease), but it will not remove the sebum that has already clogged the scalp...to get rid of that use Dr. Bronners Magic Peppermint Soap; this is a very vital tool for people suffering from baldness.

Caustic, I remember a post of yours a long time ago when you said that the big mistery about baldness is that if a young male was castrated before the baldness started, then he would not go bald. But if he was castrated after the balding process began then he would still go bald. Maybe MisterE's theory is the answer to that mistery. Once the sebum builds up, it stays there so even if the male is castrated he will continue to go bald unless he cleans his scalp up.

for sebum reduction I am taking pantethine (which is a derivative of vitamin B5 and a co-enzyme A precursor), 300 mg 3 xs day; N-aceytl-cysteine ("NAC") 600 mg 2 x day and L-Carnetine 3 x day (can remember dose per cap - see Immortal's regimen page--it's in the top 6 I believe--the dose is). It's working amazingly well. Another thing that is topical and helps is Retin-A. Then of course, Immortal recommends the lithium orotate, which is also on his regimen page to add to your SLS-free shampoo along with DMSO. All of this has been working very well for me.

Cool. Now I am running to my refrigerator to see if my probiotic has this particular bacteria in it. :-)
