Colloidal oatmeal is a natural cosmetic ingredient obtained from Avena sativa (oats).
The whole oat grain, including the bran layer, is milled and sieved. This results in a light cream coloured, fine powder. The bran layer of the oat contains a high proportion of natural actives including, oat beta-glucan, avenanthramides, oil and protein, all of which are beneficial for cosmetic use on the skin.
A ‘colloid’ or colloidal suspension is defined as a substance with dispersed insoluble particles suspended throughout.
