All You Need to Know About Colloidal Oatmeal in Skincare

Jun 19, 2024

What is Colloidal Oatmeal?

Nope, we're not talking about overnight oats, this stuff is for external use only.
It's basically your everyday oat kernels, ground so finely that they transform into a power-packed powder. Packed with proteins, lipids, and vital nutrients, colloidal oatmeal creates a soothing barrier on the skin. Its superpower lies in calming dry, itchy, or irritated skin, while also providing essential moisture and maintaining the skin's natural pH balance.

So, when we talk about colloidal oatmeal, we’re talking about nature’s own skin remedy for anyone struggling with skin concerns like:

  • Keratosis pilaris, strawberry skin
  • Bumpy, textured or rough skin
  • Eczema
  • Buttne and back acne
  • Acne, scarring & blemishes
  • Inflamed & irritated skin
  • Weakened skin barrier 
  • Dry flaky skin

Colloidal Oatmeal is The Sensitive Skin’s BFF: If your skin throws a tantrum at the mere thought of trying new products, colloidal oatmeal might just be the gentle hero you need. It’s known for its skin calming properties, making it a favorite for those with sensitive skin.

A Skin Remedy for Bumpy & Irritated Skin That Comes in Delicious Formulas

We've already sang the praises of colloidal oatmeal, but let's get specific. Here at Vams Beauty, we stock Oat Body Skincare. It's in the name, the whole range is infused with colloidal oatmeal goodness. These products are not just soothing but also effective in exfoliating and moisturizing. These skin benefits are key in managing conditions like keratosis pilaris. Why? Because the gentle exfoliation helps to unclog pores and smoothen skin bumps, while the deeply moisturizing natural oils keep your skin supple and less prone to dryness.
