Again, you cannot stop oil production, even temporarily with simple external soaps. Your sebaceous glands produce oil at a constant rate and this rate is influenced by androgens only.

 

anniej is right, spironolactone will work for oily skin, because it inhibits androgen activity.

Oil production is entirely controlled by androgens, nothing you put on your face will "keep it down".

I'm using Now Foods 25000 IU Vitamin from fish oil. I've been taking high doses (50000 IU then 25000 IU) for about a year.
