Skin Nourishing Colloidal Oatmeal Cream ~ Hydrating, Protein Rich, Dry Skin
The combination of shea butter and nourishing oils makes a highly moisturizing combination, but whipping the mix helps it go on smoothly without being oily.
Oatmeal is full of anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds and is known for its skin-soothing properties including moisturizing dry skin, providing relief from itching, rashes and other minor skin irritations.
The Ancient Egyptians were among the first to recognize the skin-soothing properties of oats (Avena sativa), dating back to 2000 B.C. It wasn’t until 2003, however, that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration officially approved colloidal oatmeal as an effective ingredient to treat skin ailments, including eczema, psoriasis, and rashes.
Colloidal oatmeal refers to oats that are finely milled and then suspended in water, another liquid or gel. In a liquid or gel, Colloidal Oatmeal disperses evenly. This suspension of oats allows it to be applied and absorbed easily, providing many protective benefits for sensitive, irritated skin.
SKIN BENEFITS OF COLLOIDAL OATMEAL
Helps Defend the Skin
While Colloidal Oatmeal should not be consumed because it expands greatly in water, its actives effectively soothe dry and sensitive skin when applied topically. Oats contain polysaccharides, which have a gel-like texture when combined with moisture. This light gel leaves a protective layer over the skin that seals in skin’s natural moisture while also providing additional nutrients. For many with sensitive skin, the skin barrier function may be compromised, and a layer of Colloidal Oatmeal acts like a protective, second skin. The proteins in oats also improve the skin barrier’s functionality by increasing the production of filaggrin, an essential building block of the skin barrier’s function.
Hydrates Dry Skin
The protective layer Colloidal Oatmeal imparts over the skin’s surface helps retain its natural moisture, while other actives help replenish moisture levels. The starches in oats are able to absorb water and bind it to the skin.
Evens out Skin Tone and Texture
Oats are also a rich source of avenanthramides, a unique group of antioxidant compounds not found in other plant sources. Avenanthramides are the main actives in oats that reduce redness and inflammation, especially irritation from excessive sun exposure (UV radiation).
In addition to its calming qualities, oats also act as a gentle exfoliator for skin, excellent for removing dead cells and revealing brighter skin that lies beneath.
You have an option to leave this cream fragrance free/essential oil free or to include an Essential Oil Blend of lavender, bergamot, and frankincense to help treat, sooth and heal inflamed skin. I offer this as on option because many Eczema suffers need additional help while some prefer the cream without essential oils or so it can be used for small children.
