Oat Cosmetics have released impressive long-term clinical trial results of their most popular ingredient, Oat COM, a range of optimised extruded Colloidal Oatmeal.  The results show that this powerful ingredient, even at a small inclusion rate of 3% displays remarkable rapid and sustained anti-aging effects.

Ed Galley of Ed Galley Associates comments “These are among the most impressive short-term and sustained results I have seen for such simple formula cream.”


Over the 90 day trial an astounding 86% of the subjects felt that the product consistently left their skin feeling moisturised, 80% felt it created a feeling that the skin was silky soft and 73% agreed that it soothed the skin. 79% of subjects agreed that the products nourished their skin over the 90 day period.

Galley continues “Having these results after 30 days is very impressive but to keep them high after 90 days is almost unheard of and confirms Oat COM (extruded Colloidal Oatmeal) provides a variety of exceptional long-term skin care benefits.”

An independent consumer research facility conducted a single placement study over 90 days, using a market-relevant facial cream to be used once per day. 53 female subjects were trialled, all over the age of 40 years old, who were selected to ensure the three skin types of normal, sensitive and dry skin were equally represented.  Subjects were asked a number of questions at the initial assessment, and on day 30, 60, and 90.

The subjects stated that on initial application the product absorbed easily, was non-greasy and left no tacky after feel, in addition they felt it left their skin feeling soft after use.

The trial demonstrated that the Oat COM (extruded Colloidal Oatmeal) could be an effective active across all three skin types contributing anti-aging properties by moisturising, nourishing, and soothing the skin

Oat Cosmetics Business Development Manager Angus Robertson explains “Oat COM delivers such staggering results in comparison to other colloidal oatmeal because it is manufactured from carefully selected high β-glucan varieties of oat (Avena sativa) and a unique extrusion process is employed to improve its activity and functionality. The trial underpins our confidence that our advanced Colloidal Oatmeal, Oat COM is a proven and effective active ingredient for skin care creams and lotions”.
