Oats ( Avena sativa ) is a nutrient rich grain. We use it in the form of a light yellow supercritical Co2 concentrated extract.

Oats have been used for hundreds of years in their raw form for their anti-inflammatory, anti-irritant and softening properties, as a bath additive for Eczema, Psoriasis and problem skin and as a herbal nerve tonic.

The most active part of oats is Beta-glucan, this has the ability to penetrate deeply into the dermis ( where wrinkles form) enhancing cell repair.

Studies published in the magazine of the International Federation of Societies and Cosmetic Chemists by Dr Pillai, observed that when Beta-glucan was used topically over an eight week period, wrinkles and roughness diminished by up to 15% with an increase in skin firmness.

We use organically grown grain, grown in the Polar region of Finland ( Lapland), this variety is nutrient rich as it has to survive the extreme climate.

Our concentrated formula provides a perfect combination of alpha-tocopherol, alpha- tocotrienol ( Vitamin E ) and Linoleic and Oleic acids ( Vitamin F ) Essential Fatty Acids that are essential to good skin health.
