Oatmeal is no stranger to us as it’s a superfood that has tons of amazing benefits for our health such as reducing the risk of diseases and gives us tons of energy throughout the day! Many of us also loved the overnight oats trend too for a quick & healthy breakfast!

But did you know that oats can be incredibly beneficial for our skin too? Yas, oats have long been celebrated as one of the most effective ingredients for your skin as they can treat minor skin conditions as well as moisturise your skin to give it that perfect healthy glow! ✨

Before we get into the benefits, let’s have a look at the type of oatmeal used for cosmetic purposes:


What type of oatmeal is used in skincare & how does it work? 


Before you run to your pantry and slather your face in oatmeal, let’s firstly understand the type of oatmeal used in skincare: colloidal oatmeal.

Colloidal oatmeal is basically oats that have been ground down into a fine powder as part of the milling process. This allows the oats to be suspended in liquid, so they can be added to smooth, effective skincare products without losing any beneficial proteins, lipids or enzymes.

Colloidal oatmeal is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients which is easily absorbed into the skin. It also becomes extra effective in soothing our skin when it’s activated with water or oil making it the perfect ingredient for those with sensitive, dry and itchy skin! Super cool stuff, right? 


Now, we can explore the multiple skin-loving benefits that colloidal oatmeal has on our skin:

1. It’s the perfect thirst quencher for dry, flaky skin

Living in Malaysia, we’ve all experienced dry skin before and we know how painful it can be. Dry skin is usually caused by a lack of water in the upper layers of our skin which happens if you sleep with the aircon at full blast every night or love taking hot showers!

Colloidal oatmeal helps with moisturising those layers as it is rich in protein and lipids that work to retain moisture by creating a layer above our skin that traps water! This gives our skin a more radiant appearance and reduces dry skin almost instantly! It also contains anti-inflammatory vitamin E which further aids in moisturization, yay! ?


2. It does wonders for those suffering from eczema 


Those with eczema not only suffer from inflamed skin all over their body but they’re known to have extremely dry skin too. Eczema destroys the surface of the epidermis preventing it from retaining the moisture it so desperately needs!

This is where oatmeal saves the day! Oatmeal contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that help treat irritation caused by eczema-prone skin, it also helps to strengthen the outer barrier of your skin! ?


3. Oatmeal soothes our skin from irritation caused by other products

Whether or not we may realise it, the ingredients found in our body soap or shampoo can be quite irritating on our skin. One ingredient, in particular, that may be the cause behind itchy and irritated skin is sodium lauryl sulphate, commonly found in body washes, shampoos, toothpaste, and even laundry detergent! ?

So the next time you develop a sudden rash or notice your skin looking dry & flaky out of nowhere, lather on an oatmeal-based lotion because colloidal oatmeal has been proven to soothe irritated skin as well as reduce itch and inflammation! Also, oatmeal is a natural ingredient so it’s perfectly safe for your skin. ?

We don’t know about you guys but we are taken aback by the sheer quality of oatmeal and how it can help soothe & protect our skin! If you have dry & sensitive skin and have been using body lotion but don’t notice a difference, we highly recommend switching to a product formulated with oatmeal. You can thank us later!
