We source our specialist, cosmetic-grade oats from farms across Finland and Sweden. Nordic oats are renowned for their exceptional quality due to the countries’ unique arctic climate and unrivalled farming expertise, meaning we can be sure our cosmetic ingredients are made with some of the best oats in the world. Since the birth of Oat Cosmetics, we’ve worked closely with local farmers and farming cooperatives to refine our oat harvesting processes with a view to producing high-quality, traceable oats through sustainable practices, and are proud to be able to follow the journey of our oat-derived ingredients from field to face.

A History of Oats
Oats are steeped in a rich history spanning thousands of years; their benefits standing the ultimate test of time and the knowledge of their varied uses passing from generation to generation. Explore the key milestones in oat history below.
Oats in Medicine
Across Egypt and the Arabian Peninsula, oats are used in various forms – food, tea, baths – to treat health conditions such as anxiety and insomnia, and skin conditions such as eczema, burns and other inflammatory eruptions.
Oats in Food
Oats lose popularity almost everywhere except Scotland and Ireland as they become better known as a food than for their medicinal properties, though they are still used in the treatment of minor ailments such as the common cold.
Oats in Cosmetics
Evidence-based literature on the cosmetic benefits of oatmeal is published, highlighting its ability to relieve skin irritation and to protect the skin from excess water loss when formulated in face masks and bath oils.
Oats Across Industries
Oat Cosmetics successfully supplies a range of trend-driven, oat-derived cosmetic ingredients worldwide having launched the brand in 2009.
Global demand for oats soars across the cosmetics, food and health sectors as a result of changing consumer trends. Consumers now actively search for sustainable and natural alternatives to long-trusted products and services across all areas of life, with oats increasingly recognised as a highly effective cosmetics, food and health ingredient.
