We use the crème de la crème of oat oils found in the cosmetic industry today - Ecocert certified oats: Avena Sativa Kernel Extract.


This Sweden organic oat oil won the 2015 BSB Innovation award in the category ‘most functional product’. It is a high-quality, rich, natural oat oil with a unique lipid profile that balances the skin’s oil levels by maintaining the epidermal water barrier thereby improving skin barrier function 


It's gentle even for newborns and is found in A For Apothecary Baby Balm, Baby Massage Oil, Rose Glow Elixir and Anti Stretch Mark Oil.


Rich in skin-identical fatty acids, the membrane phospholipids, ceramides and powerful antioxidants provides reparative and protective properties. Studies conducted showed it offers statistically-significant reduction in papules, blackheads and lesions.




5 Reasons to fall in love with Oat Lipid Oil:


1. Gentle even on newborns


Oat lipid is tested to be gluten-free, fragrance-free, paraben-free, cruelty-free, hypoallergenic, non-GMO. One of the most gentle oils for newborns, this is a great baby skincare for sensitive skin.


2. Powerful antioxidants


Packed with antioxidants such as vitamin E which protects skin lipids from UV peroxidation and DNA damage.


3. Packed with ceramides


Due to the rich polar lipid content, Oat Lipid acts as an occlusive and a humectant, absorbing and retaining moisture in the skin. Ceramides lock in moisture levels by forming a physical barrier to epidermal water loss, preventing further drying.


4. Acne busters for oily yet dehydrated skin


Proven to be non-comedogenic, this non-greasy oil absorbs like a dream and reduces papules, blackheads, and lesions. This makes it an excellent oil for those with oily yet dehydrated skin.


5. Maintain healthy skin balance


Rich in vitamin E and Linoleic acid, Oat Lipid can help maintain the skin's natural balance by replacing lipids lost in everyday activities.
