Oat Straw (Avena Sativa) is the green stem of the plant which has been passed down through generations as an herbal supporter of health – especially in women. Oat Oil is heralded for its ability to nourish and soothe maturing, sensitive and damaged skin, and it improves the elasticity of the skin and hair. Oat Oil possesses exceptional emolliency, and it penetrates the skin rapidly. Its fatty acid composition includes over 35% omega fatty acids, and it is a noteworthy source of antioxidants. Oat Oil also acts as a natural emulsifier, and it can help minimize the need for other emulsifiers within oil/water-based formulations. Oat Oil is comprised of saponins that contribute to Oat Oil’s ability to provide a level of protection against UVB rays. Oat Oil is recommended for all skin types, but especially for sensitive skin and dry and flaky skin.
