Beiersdorf has introduced three new products to its Nivea for Men portfolio, under a new Oil Control banner.

The beauty giant said the newcomers - a face wash, shaving gel and light moisturiser - were designed to combat the problem of oily skin.

According to the company’s research, about one in three men suffers with greasy skin, or “excess sebum”, mainly due to their thicker skin and more active sebaceous glands. A spokesman said: “Most of these men want to find an effective solution to soak up shiny skin but don’t want to buy into harsh anti-blemish products.”

The 150ml face wash retails at £4.79, while Oil Control shaving gel (200ml) and moisturiser (75ml) cost £3.35 and £6.65 respectively.
