Oat Lipid launchWith the beauty industry’s ‘free-from’ trend on the rise globally, Oat Cosmetics have reacted to consumer demand and is excited to announce the ground-breaking research results of their gluten-free oat oil, Oat Lipid e.

The new data, released today, has demonstrated Oat Lipid e’s remarkable lipid profile which is packed with a number of effective skin and hair care benefits for both the formulator and consumer. The oil contains no proteins and is completely gluten free.

Oat Lipid e is rich in skin identical lipids. This includes a high level of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids which are key for improving the skin barrier and reducing TEWL. The Oil also has a significant amount of membrane-identical phospholipids; ceramides, phosphatidycholine and phosphatidylethanolamine, which combine to support the barrier function helping to keep skin in a healthy condition, and slow down skin aging. This multifunctional oil also contains antioxidants including alkyl phenolates and Vitamin E concentrated in the form of potent tocotrienols as well as tocopherols, to protect skin lipids from free radical induced peroxidation (a full specification profile can be viewed by clicking here).

A leading independent formulator of skin and personal care products :

“Adding Oat Lipid e to any and all skin care products is an absolute no-brainer. In addition to its excellent sensory attributes, it is super beneficial to the skin due to its unique lipid profile. It is effectively liquid skin in a nice feeling luxurious oil!”

In addition to its unique lipid profile, the physical properties of Oat Lipid e ensure it is an excellent choice for the formulator as a multifunctional ingredient with a golden colour and good stability.  It is approved as natural by ECOCERT / COSMOS and retains the valuable active components. It is a versatile ingredient that is easy to use in a wide range of cosmetic applications including baby, moisturising, anti-aging, sun care, tanning products and bath oils.
