The same plant compounds that make oats highly heart protective also provide anti-inflammatory skin benefits, which is why oatmeal is a proven favourite for improving eczema symptoms. Not just any oatmeal, and not as a food but as a skincare ingredient.
Colloidal oatmeal is a super-fine version of oat kernels with tiny particle size suited to topical application. Colloidal oatmeal lotions and creams have been very widely studied with dozens of clinical trials proving efficacy in improving :
- Skin pH balance
- Skin barrier function and defects
- Skin hydration
- Skin microbiome composition
- Skin dryness and scaling
- Skin irritation and itch
No wonder it’s a must in skincare for eczema and other chronic conditions!
