A mattifying product diminishes the shiny appearance of skin by absorbing sebaceous secretions and limiting sebum production. It works notably thanks to the presence of vitamins and zinc, which neutralise shininess at the source, and technologies that unclog pores at their core. Mattifying products may be powders, foundation or emulsions.
