Featured Ingredient: Oatmeal
Why It's a Primary Ingredient in Our Soap
The ingredient oatmeal is one of the main ingredients in our Eczema soap. That’s because this particular ingredient is recommended by dermatologists for sensitive skin. This also applies to those that are allergy or eczema-prone. Oats offer superior moisturizing abilities. They also provide antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. As a result, oats can help heal skin and relieve that dreaded skin itch.
The Ingredient Oatmeal & Eczema
When it comes to Eczema, oatmeal can aid in skin recovery by means of moisturizing. In turn, this lessens skin itch, provides inflammation regulation, and restoration of the skin barrier. This is why we chose the ingredient Oatmeal as one of our primary ingredients. The way our soap bar is designed, the oats provide gentle exfoliation as well.
Benefits of Oatmeal Soap
Another skin benefit of the ingredient Oatmeal is that it’s suitable for all skin types. This includes sensitive skin and problem skin, like Atopic Dermatitis. In fact, you will see the ingredient Oatmeal as one of the primary ingredients in the majority of soaps designed for Eczema-prone skin. There’s a reason for this!
Fights Dry Skin – Oats can help protect against and prevent dryness of the skin through the polysaccharids (long chain sugars) found in oats. They become a gelatin-like substance that leaves a very fine but protective film on the skin, sort of like a barrier.
Moisturizes – Oats contain fats that further the ‘barrier’ mentioned above. As a result they can help improve dry, itchy skin.
Cleanses Pores – The ingredient Oatmeal offers a natural, gentle cleanse thanks to the saponins contained in oats.
Gentle Exfoliant – Our Eczema soap is gently exfoliating thanks to the added oatmeal. While many people steer clear of exfoliating when they have a skin condition, our soap provides a natural but gentle exfoliant experience.skin
