NEW DATA for our Advanced Colloidal Oatmeal

With progressive research, we have new data showing the capabilities of our advanced colloidal oatmeal, Oat COM. We have results that show how Oat COM, as a functional ingredient, offers sought-after benefits to skin and hair.

Our new data includes studies on; skin repair, scalp microbiome and bacterial growth, gene modulation and biological activity.

Oat COM is a colloidal oatmeal, containing oat molecules which can improve skin condition. These molecules include: lipids, beta glucan and antioxidants. Our colloidal oatmeal is finely ground and processed, so the ingredient allows the molecules to benefit the skin and form a think film, binding the skin and acting as a protectant.

  • Helps to restore the protective skin barrier and promotes skin healing.
  • Helps relieve acute irritation associated with dry skin conditions and to relieve itchiness, restoring the healthy skin barrier.
  • Acts as a natural emulsifier and locks in moisture leaving skin soothed and smooth.

Skin Repair with Colloidal Oatmeal

62% Increase in Skin Barrier Function (compared with placebo)

Oat COM offers enhanced moisturisation, accelerated barrier recovery and leads to visible improvements in skin redness. The reparative properties of Oat COM are thanks to the skin interaction with oat beta-glucan and antioxidants present.

The foundation of current wellness skincare trends, is protecting the skin barrier. Focus has shifted from how the skin looks, to the overall health of the skin, and how that contributes to resolving skin concerns. This also links to the protective attributes of Oat COM, supporting the skins natural defences against environmental damage.
