Abstract: This study presents sebum reduction in volunteers’ cheeks when applied a cream containing <i>Acacia </i>bark extract analyzed by non-invasive instrument Sebumeter. A cream containing <i>Acacia nilotica </i>bark extract (3%) versus base was applied in single blinded study twice daily to the cheeks for a period of 12 weeks. The instrumental measurements were carried out with Sebumeter under a draught-free room, with controlled temperature (18.0–20.6°C) and relative humidity (55–65%). Active cream showed a significant decrease in skin sebum and base showed insignificant results when applied ANOVA. This study indicates that incorporation of <i>Acacia </i>bark extract in creams significantly reduces sebum secretion <i>in vivo </i>and can be used for the topical treatment of oily skin in humans.
