When the skin is unbalanced, it will over or under produce a substance called sebum (that we have in our skin naturally, the sebum helps the skin to feel hydrated) which gives the skin an oily or a dry appearance.

By using oils that has the similar substances as the skin, the skin acts and stop over producing sebum and find a more regulated production.
