If you grind up a portion of rolled oats will be ground oats. A coffee grinder and lots of sifting may get you a fine, powdery result, but still won't get the particle size down far enough to call it colloidal oatmeal.
Go ahead and add your ground oats to a powdered face cleanser or face mask, but if you incorporate it into an emulsion (say, a lotion), it may create undesirable lumpy-bits.
In short: ground oats have more limited uses than colloidal oatmeal in a cosmetics-making setting.
Colloidal oatmeal is processed from whole oats and includes the bran, but has a smaller particle size than can be achieved in a home setting (more on that in a minute).
Oat flour is made from oats where the bran has been removed. By removing the bran, it's possible to mill the oats to a much finer particle size. This is great if you want to add a bit of texturizer to your product, but not at all great if you want all the documented skin-loving properties that colloidal oats offer.
In short, without the bran, the oats just ain't grand.
It leaves the bar creamy and smooth with a slippy feeling. Very luxurious
I used this colloidal oatmeal at 1% in my lotion. It's texture is beautifully fine and smooth so that its benefits are loved but its presence is not felt.
I made a really nice hand lotion with this Colloidal Oatmeal. Aside from having a very oat smell which I will add more scent to compliment next time, it was a nice product to work with.
I add colloidal oatmeal powder to my dry shampoo mixture of rice starch and touch of bentonite clay, and it works perfectly. I’ll definitely be purchasing more from here when I run out. Thanks for the great product!
This colloidal oat powder is the finest I have found and makes a wonderful skin soothing addition to soaps and lotions.
