Why Oat Lipids Is Your Secret Weapon To Healthy Skin



Written by Jingyi


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 our 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.


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.
