We also incorporate gentle Almond and Honey Exfoliant and 100% Organic Argan Oil.
Yes, you can use oatmeal on your face. Oatmeal is a natural ingredient and does not contain any chemically processed or synthetic elements. It is soothing, calming, and can be used on infant skin.
No, oatmeal does not clog pores. Oatmeal contains compounds called saponins, which act as natural cleansers and eliminate the dirt and oil that clog pores.
Yes! Oatmeal-based skincare products can decrease irritation, increase hydration, and nourish dry skin. Countless studies show that these products restore skin hydration levels of skin and reduce the symptoms of eczema and other skin conditions, such as itching and ﬂaking.
While it’s safe to put a raw oatmeal mask on your face, you will not experience the same beneﬁts of a clinically formulated oatmeal mask. The most beneﬁcial oatmeal masks utilize pure, pharmaceutical grade, colloidal, and water-soluble oatmeal, combined with other soothing humectants.
