Traditionally oats are used to make porridge. This is a good thing, reduce asthma risk in children, decrease bad cholesterol levels, helps to lose weight increasing your appetite-control hormones and a long list of health benefits which comes from this super food. But what about from the cosmetic point of view? To be honest IT'S AMAZING!

The use of oats in skin care dates back to around 2000 BC in Egypt and the Arabian Peninsula. In various forms (food, tea, baths), oats were used to treat insomnia, anxiety and skin conditions including eczema, burns and other inflammatory eruptions. Today oatmeal is a recognised treatment for dermatitis, burns, inflamed, itchy and sensitive skin. It contains a very high level of important natural antioxidants, including tocols and a class of alkyl phenolates unique to oats. Rich in essential fatty acids and natural emollients, this product provides excellent softening, smoothing and hydrating actives for skin, cosmetic and hair products. For hair care, oat beta glucan strengthens the hair, increases comb-ability, improves elasticity and works to protect against brittleness and damage.
