Oatmeal has long been known for its skin soothing properties but did you know.....
Colloidal oatmeal is processed with the whole bran, which is where the skin-soothing actives can be found.
Oil-replenishing lipids, moisturizing beta-glucans, and avenanthramides – an antioxidant unique to oats.
Rich in proteins and lipids, oatmeal has potent emollient properties, making it a great moisturizer. It also contains anti-inflammatory vitamin E, along with phenols and starches to aid in moisturization.
Oatmeal contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that helps treat itching associated with dry, irritated skin. Remember those oatmeal baths you had to take when you got chicken pox as a kid? All for good reason!
Oats act as a natural cleanser and exfoliator by removing dead skin cells to reveal smoother, brighter complexions.
Known for its moisturizing qualities, oatmeal keeps skin hydrated by forming a protective barrier that holds water against the skin.
Oatmeal contains flavonoids, which help to absorb damaging ultraviolet-A (UVA) rays. Flavonoids can even protect your skin from harsh pollutants and chemicals
Due to its skin-friendly properties, oatmeal is suited for all skin types. This includes even the most sensitive skin types who suffer from symptoms like acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
Oatmeal’s antioxidant properties are owed to the presence of different types of protective phenols in oat’s natural composition. These skin-beneficial UV-fighters include ferulic and caffeic acids.
