We use Gluten-Free Whole Grain Oat flour in our Edible Exfoliant Cleanser for Face and Lips.
The Oats serve as a gentle exfoliant in this formulation, so that it may be gentle enough for daily use. But most importantly, oat protein improves collagen deposition. Collagen keeps our skin youthful and supple, but collagen production diminishes with age. Using ingredients that increase the deposition of collagen is essential for maturing skin. The polysaccharides in oats fight dryness and reduce pore size.
Oats are wonderfully healing for acne and eczema prone skin alike, because it is an excellent moisturizer with skin healing, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and itch relieving benefits. It nourishes the skin while drawing out the impurities.
