Tasty for breakfast and tasty for your face..... Ingredient Spotlight this week goes to OATS! Listed as "Colloidal Oatmeal" on the ingredient list of the Clay Butter Cleanser, but let's just call it what a lot of us call it, oats!
Oats are the perfect addition to a cleanser as they contain saponins which you can think of as a cleansing agent. They also contain avenacins which adds anti-fungal properties to the ingredient too!
The grainy texture of oats also make it a fantastic exfoliant that is much more kind to sensitive skins compared to other exfoliators. It's gentle enough to use everyday.
Oats are also know for containing antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties because of the phenols it contains. The cellulose and fiber give oats moisturising and soothing effects which help to calm redness and irritation.
All the ingredients in the Clay Butter Cleanser have been chosen to work together and to help balance your skin. Oats are the perfect ingredient to not only cleanse but to help soothe the skin too!
