Extracted from the kernel of common oats, oat oil possesses not only the properties of regular oats but also extra benefits from its high concentration in omega fatty acids, anti-oxidants, and other micro-nutrients.

The chemical constituents of Oat Carrier Oil are Tocopherol, Phytosterol, Phospholipid, Antioxidants, Oleic Acid, and Linoleic acid.

Used topically, Oat Carrier Oil boosts moisture in the skin by creating a skin barrier that prevents moisturizers from seeping out of the skin. Oat Oil is highly absorbable by the skin and leaves no residue. Oat Oil acts as a moisturizer by removing dead skin cells. The oil also acts as a protective barrier for the skin and protects it from outside environments like harsh weather. Antioxidant properties found in the oil allow it to be a great anti-ageing moisturizer.

Our skin cells naturally produce ceramide that acts as a barrier between the outside environment and our skin. As we grow older, the natural barrier reduces, resulting in dry-looking skin, visible wrinkles, and irritation. Oat oil increases ceramide levels in the skin and thus reduces visible ageing symptoms on our skin.

Oat Oil has anti-inflammatory effects on our skin and can be used to soothe itchy skin and reduce the redness caused by itching. Oat Oil is highly suitable for dry skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. The Linoleic acid found in Oat Oil stimulates hair growth and ensures hair shafts stay hydrated by minimizing water loss in the scalp. Damage caused by UV rays, chemicals and pollution are reversed with the help of Oat Oil.

Used medicinally, Oat Carrier Oil heals wounds and assists in disease-fighting as it is an antioxidant. Oat Oil has antimicrobial properties that allow it to fight and destroy unwanted micro-organisms. Oat Carrier Oil has anti-fungal properties that can soothe and cleanse the skin while calming dry itchy skin.

  • COSMETIC: Anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antioxidant, revitalizing Emollient, and anti-ageing
