The goodness hidden in cereal for your skin

29 August 2017

The new Kaura Hand soap, Kaura Hand cream and Kaura Sugar scrub of the Spa & Sauna line contain genuine oatmeal and oat seed oil.

Thanks to the healthiness oats have been an essential staple food for years. Now they can apply the best properties of oats to skin care as well. Oat flour (Avena Sativa Kernel Flour) is excellent for cosmetic products, because it has been found to have skin moisturising and soothing properties. Oat flour has also cleansing properties and it helps prevent skin’s itching.

Oat flour made from Finnish oats is very finely milled. The entire kernel with the hull is used for making the flour. Oat flour is made of a variety of the common oat named Peppi that has the highest ß-glucan content of any oat varieties. That is why it is widely used in food industry, but also in cosmetics. In cosmetic products ß-glucan supports among others the skin’s regeneration process, it helps prevent the signs of skin’s aging, soothes skin and reduces skin’s redness.

Skin care products that contain oat flour leave a luxurious silky feeling on skin. Oats add to products a natural, slightly yellowish colouring as well.

Oat kernel oil (Avena Sativa Kernel Oil) is rich in antioxidants, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and it contains more ceramides than other plant oils.

The oil moisturises skin, it supports the formation of skin’s protective layer, it softens skin and provides skin care for the Nordic weather conditions. As we age the skin's natural amount of ceramides decreases and therefore skin tends to get dry faster. Creams that contain ceramides and fatty acids strengthen the outer protective skin layer and by that prevent the evaporation of moisture from skin.

The entire kernel is used in the oil production as well, to utilise its benefits to the maximum.

The finely milled oat flour used in the products can contain traces of gluten.
