Colloidal Oats powder is used in skin care as it has a number of beneficial properties that can help soothe and moisturize the skin. One of the main benefits of colloidal oats powder is that it is a natural anti-inflammatory, which can help to reduce redness and irritation on the skin. It also contains compounds called avenanthramides that have antioxidant and anti-itching properties, which can help to calm irritated skin.
Another benefit of colloidal oats powder is that it is an excellent natural moisturizer. It can help to keep the skin hydrated by forming a barrier on the skin that locks in moisture. The powder also has a high amount of starch which is a natural emollient that can help to smooth and soften the skin.
Colloidal oats powder is also a mild exfoliant, it can help to gently remove dead skin cells and reveal healthier, smoother skin. It is also suitable for all skin types, even for sensitive skin. Colloidal oats powder can be used in many skincare products such as face masks, scrubs, lotions, creams, and soaps.
