In this first instalment of our new blog series, Formulation Friday, we’re discussing the use and benefits of our Dry Skin Relief Cream containing Oat COM. Throughout this series we will be shining the spotlight on the different formulations we’ve developed using our oat-derived ingredients.
As mid-winter approaches across the northern hemisphere, temperatures are beginning to drop to their annual lowest. These low temperatures undoubtedly have their benefits – take the charming sight of frost-covered landscapes, for example – but unfortunately for many, winter weather means battling uncomfortably dry, flaky skin. To combat these symptoms we’ve formulated a Dry Skin Relief Cream containing our advanced colloidal oatmeal, Oat COM USP.
The Dry Skin Relief Cream has a thick, rich texture, with a silky-smooth feel that instantly soothes when slathered onto the body. It’s ability to replenish and protect dry, winter-wrecked skin comes from the use of Oat COM USP which contains several invaluable molecules including lipids, beta-glucan and antioxidants. Avenanthramides, antioxidants unique to oats, are particularly beneficial in our Dry Skin Relief Cream as they help to reduce the redness and irritation caused by dry skin.
