The technical advancement of our Oat based silicone free serum comes from the combined attributes of our three flagship Oat ingredients, Oat COM, Oat Lipid and Oat SILK. Serums need to provide a good coverage and rapid absorption while leaving skin immediately soft, silky and matte with lasting effects. Silicones are normally used to achieve this balance often through combining light, volatile silicones with heavier elastomer silicone compounds. However, an increasing demand for natural-based skin products and a move towards silicone free cosmetics has led to us create this natural, luxurious Serum.
