Just like that, the holiday season is here once again! This year, starting with a lockdown and steadily transitioning out of the pandemic, we found some normality. But, ‘getting back to normal’ by no means meant going back to old habits. Over the pandemic, we all reflected. We saw some significant changes in consumer behaviour, especially in the world of beauty and cosmetics. We recognised how critical it is to look after our physical and mental wellbeing. The word ‘self care’ became more than a buzzword. Consumers ditched long and complicated skincare routines and looked for natural and minimal solutions. From big brands to digital influencers, everyone emphasised the importance of investing time in ourselves. We started to appreciate and find ways to reconnect with nature and the natural.
Skincare routines truly became the physical manifestation of self care. Nothing nicer than to spend the evening after a long day of work and spend some time looking after yourself. Nothing better than treating a loved one (or yourself) with the gift of skincare. With that, we share our gift guide to a naturally BEAUTYful Christmas, featuring Oat Cosmetics’ very own natural oat-derived ingredients.
Liz Earle’s Pro-Biotic Balancing Range
We have been loving Liz Earle’s new pro-biotic range, especially due to its natural positioning. It has been particularly exciting to be featured in their pro-biotic skin range with our skin active, aurafirm. This range of products embodies aurafirm’s unique blend of pre, pro, and postbiotics to strengthen and protect the skin’s moisture barrier while rebalancing the appearance of oily and dry areas.

AMELIORATE’s Intensive Treatments
Fill up those stockings with AMELIORATE’s intense formulations for those annoying dry skin days. We recommend keeping these handy at your desk or on the go. The cold winter days can be very harsh for the skin. Nothing more irritating than chapped lips and dry hands! The great thing about this product is that it uses Oat Lipid e which leaves you with overall softer, smoother, and healthier-looking skin.

From big brands to small businesses, we love to see how our ingredients are used to innovate and revolutionise skincare.
