Oatmeal is used in natural skin care to tackle a range of issues. Rich in polysaccharides, proteins and lubricating fats, it sloughs away dry, flaky skin and forms a protective barrier against UV rays. As a natural moisturiser and anti-inflammatory agent, it soothes irritated skin and penetrates deeply to heal damage. Oatmeal contains cleansing saponins that gently removes pores of dirt, dead skin cells and excess oil, leaving behind soft and silky skin. It tones, smoothes and improves skin texture and assists collagen deposition, making it an effective anti aging ingredient.
