Oats have long been used for soothing skin conditions, and are now known to be highly emollient with no dermal irritation and sensitivity. Packed with ceramides to lock in moisture.
Because this oil is so rich in antioxidants and tocopherols and has natural emulsifiers, formulators may find they can reduce the amount of chemical emulsifiers in their product.
In addition, it moisturizes and soothes the hair strands and protects them from environmental damage.
