Colloidal Oatmeal Powder for Skin
Colloidal Oatmeal Powder for Skin
Colloidal oatmeal is a fine powder made from whole oat kernels with bran, used as a skin protectant that soothes itchiness, inflammation, and sloughs away dead skin cells. Unlike oat powder made at home, colloidal oatmeal has a smaller particle size which makes it suitable for making homemade powder cleansers.
Use it directly as a face/hair mask with water. Add it to your face masks/ bath powders/ powder cleanser. You can even add a tablespoon to your baby’s bath water.

- Difference between Oats Flour & Colloidal Oatmeal?: Oat flour normally has the bran removed to improve the taste for food applications. Colloidal oatmeal is manufactured with the bran as it contains the important skin soothing actives. In addition to this, there is a major difference in texture. Colloidal Oatmeal has smaller particle size than oats flour which makes it perfect for skincare applications. Colloidal oatmeal is finely ground and processed to allow these molecules to be used by the skin and forms a thin film which binds to the skin to form a soothing protective barrier.

- Can you make Colloidal Oatmeal at home? NO! To be effective, colloidal oatmeal is micronized to a specific particle size. It also needs to be processed so the starch is modified so it can be effectively dispersed into balms/ bath water etc. This is not something that can be achieved at home by grinding oats in a coffee grinder or blender.

Really thankful for this lovely product, again much needed for mature and dry skin
I have just ordered a few of your products. Started using the oatmeal to wash my face. Feels so good and love the smell. Does not dry out the skin like the other cleansers and leaves the skin feeling soft, supple and hydrated.
Hi, had to tell u recently had a severe reaction to a product leaving my skin extremely dry and flaky. I had samples of your oats and kaolin powder mixed them and have been using them as a cleanser saw dryness fade away in just 2 washes. Truly pure and amazing products u have. Thanks again.
I tried colloidal oatmeal samples received in my previous orders. I replaced it with my morning facewash until the samples lasted. The powder is so fine and easy to use. it’s so gentle on the skin, doesn’t make my skin dry. Frankly saying, I didn't have many expectations of its performance, thought it would leave my skin scaly dry. Surprisingly after washing my face, my skin felt so clean yet not dry.
My skin is dry & sensitive. Usually, in winter it's difficult to calm my skin. But with 7-10days of usage, skin felt so balanced
it's just made skin soft and glowing
