We all know and love the traditional porridge that our mum used to make us on cold winter mornings, and we also enjoy oats in cookies or granolas on top of a yogurt. The thing with oats is that they are versatile, and can be used in skincare as well as in food. Used for centuries to reduce itchyness and calm down irritated skin, its benefits made it popular to create soap and different cosmetic formulation to keep your skin moisturized and to help dealing with dryness problem such as eczema and psoriasis.
Here’s a few facts you may want to know about it :
– It is an amazing moisturizer. Because of the lipids and proteins it contains, oatmeal is a good humectant and has emollient properties. By using oatmeal soap everyday, you’re helping your skin staying soft, healthy and young.

The colloidal oatmeal in our soap is going to take action and moisturize your skin !
– Oatmeal is anti-inflammatory and an antioxidant which makes it suitable for troubled and sensitive skin. By finely grounding the oat grains and boiling it, we obtain an extract full of vitamins, minerals and lipids called colloidal oatmeal. This is what we use in our soap !

Then use our minty lavender soap to add a calm and soothing effect to your ‘’Me time’’ and enjoy your aromatherapy session.
