Colloidal Oatmeal has been clinically shown to moisturise and relieve dry skin. When it is used in a bath soak the oat proteins leave a barrier on the skin which stops water loss and keeps the moisture in. This stops the skin from being dry. It also targets itchy skin by having an anti-itch property which works by bringing the pH level of itchy skin back to normal lessening the need to itch. Oatmeal has been used for hundreds of years to soothe itchy and irritated skin conditions, such as eczema as well as chicken pox and insect bites. Oatmeal can hold water and protect the skin because it is packed full of starches and beta-glucans. It has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity through its many types of phenols and softens the skin because it has lots of cellulose and fibre. Coconut Milk Powder moisturizes and softens the skin due to its high content of Vitamin E. It has wonderful anti-inflammatory properties and can help soothe inflamed areas of the skin. Goat’s milk is rich in essential fatty acids and triglycerides. The essential fatty acids have a unique PH similar to humans, so it is less irritating and more easily absorbed by our skin and are super moisturizing. It also contains precious skin minerals like selenium and is loaded with vitamins, particularly vitamin A, the most important vitamin for the skin. As with other milks, goat’s milk contains lactic acid, which is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). It assists to gently slough off dead skin cells and helps to hydrate and brighten the skin.
