Colloidal Oatmeal for Red, Itchy Skin

Colloidal Oatmeal for Red, Itchy Skin

Not just a healthy source of fiber, colloidal oatmeal can also do wonders for damaged or irritated skin.

Oatmeal contains a bunch of great ingredients like proteins, vitamin E, fatty acids and many antioxidants that protect against free radical damage.

But it's best known as a natural skin soother because of its potent anti-inflammatory properties. 

How exactly does colloidal oatmeal soothe your skin? 

If you have eczema or psoriasis the cellulose and fiber from oats can nourish and soften the skin which makes it great for battling irritation and redness.

Oatmeal also forms a nourishing protective barrier so your skin can heal more quickly without having to worry about environmental stressors. 

We use colloidal oatmeal (finely grinded oats) in our Putty since its more easily absorbed into the skin and you can reap the benefits a lot more quickly. 

How can I add colloidal oatmeal into my skincare routine? 

Not only does it moisturize and protect the skin but it also cleanses the skin as well.

Use colloidal oatmeal as a cleanser 

Since oats contain saponins (natural cleansing agents found in certain plants) it can be used as an alternative to your regular soap to help cleanse the skin. Since it will wash away your skin without stripping away your natural oils, you won’t run the risk of drying out or damaging your skin barrier.

Use colloidal oatmeal as a moisturizer 

We’ve added colloidal oatmeal to our Putty moisturizer since the fine particles that have a high lipid content creates a protective and nourishing barrier on the skin so your skin can heal without losing moisture
